Imagine: an aperitif, lunch or dinner in a setting that catapults you to Paris in the 1930s. The Bourla combines elegant classic tables with gorgeous wood panelling, high ceilings and antique chandeliers. The menu is Belgian-French with a cosmopolitan flavour: enjoy escargots in garlic butter, filet pur with bordelaise sauce, stuffed tomatoes with shrimps and fries, however, a good Thai beef salad is also available. On a sunny day, you can eat on the terrace under the trees of the cosy Graanmarkt with a view of the theatre. Great asset: the service is as stylish and friendly as it is in the restaurant.
For more than forty years, thé Sir Anthony Van Dijck has been an establishment in Antwerp. You can go there for lunch and for dinner. The restaurant is hidden in the Vlaeykensgang, in the heart of the city. This narrow medieval street is an experience in itself. It seems like you're going back in time. This is the place to be for classic French cuisine with a contemporary touch. Chef Jöran De Backer works exclusively with fresh, high quality produce.
