Nice atmosphere, intriguing concept, but just decent food and high orices
With some friends we decided to give it a try after hearing so many positive words about this place. We made a booking for three and when arrived we were pleasantly surprised that Bart a Vin is a small and cosy place (definitely not suitable for big groups!). We were seated on a table for four, but even this table seemed small for us.The wine list was nice and we were definitely pleased with the whiteand red wine options. Service waspolite and quite quick given the fact that we saw only two persons handling the whole work in the restaurant. Unfortunately, the food was not to the level of our expectations. The starterhad a nice presentation and was ok, but the main dish was a disappointment for me. It seemed like a home-made dish that I could do myself and we were definitely looking forward to something on the gourmet side. It was tasty ,but certainly not worh the price tag.In conclusion, Bart -a- Vin has an intriguing concept, but it is more the hipster hype surrounding it, than actual food/presentation/experience quality.

Simplicity to Perfection
The restaurant is not easy to reach (roadworks and very little parking in the neighborhood). Warm Oosterschelde lobster with asparagus and morilles, simply outstanding. Vol-au-vent with crispy sweetbreads again outstanding. The best dame Blanche in the world. Friendly and outstanding service. Quiet very classy place.

I had been here before and liked the food a lot. Mind you, the food is fine. But all things put together, I find that it gets expensive quickly. The bill was an unpleasant surprise. The drinks and food I had were "good", but the price was for "really great". I'm certainly going back, but I'll be a bit more cautious ... and keep an eye on my wallet!

Simply Wonderful, price/quality is great, but please inform with reservations that you might be seated on a bar facing the street. It’s ok between friends, but not nice for a relaxed dinner.Dear Ronald,Thank you very much for reviewing the restaurant! Glad you've enjoyed it.

Good service. Good position. The steak a little be over cooked. Maybe we are 11 guests and the cook was too busy. We enjoyed the meals well. 我們一行人11 人，所以廚房有點忙，服務態度非常好、友善，前菜非常好吃，牛排有點過老（我們點了五分，但是上來的應該7-8分）整體來說，還是非常不錯的 ！同名的紅酒搭配也很好！

'The' lobster place in Antwerp since 1971
Succulent lobster, bouillabaise or original fish 'waterzooi' in a very simple but authentic bistrot setting, for which you always have to make reservations well in advance. The lady of the house personally checks whether everthing is fine. Count about 60€ per person for the main dish (800g lobsters) and a drink. Open only from Wednesday to Saturday. The neighbourhood is truly multicultural with eateries, bakeries and fish-shops which remain open late. You may have to spend some time to find a parking spot, but it is well worth it if you adore lobster.

Worth a Michelin star!
This is a fairly new restaurant, so you won't find it yet in the renowned guides. However, this will be only a matter of time.Everything is good here: from the drinks in the lovely garden (ok, we had good luck with the weather), over the nice interior (a restaurated old 'villa'), to - most importantly - the food.

This lovely restaurant is located by London bridge in Antwerpen for a long time.They serve excellent Croatian food with best Croatian wine.A real hidden gem !

This was so delicious! 3 kg of ultra fresh dorade (ordered in advance) grilled on charcoal by the master himself, Vincent Banic. Croatia on your dish... To be honest, the best grill you can eat in Antwerp and its wide area...!!! And for such democratic prices... And very good red wines too (try the Babic and be astonished!!).
