Here is the list of all Star restaurants in and around Antwerp. We have not tried them all yet so many of the reviews are still missing. I'll be adding more reviews in the future :)

OR try Sir Anthony van Dyck a previous Michelin star restaurant whose chef gave away his 2 Stars.


This Michelin Star rewarded chef prepares the best fish in town. Simplicity is his keyword but his cooking results in the most complex taste experience.

A few years ago, this master chef was already awarded a star for his previous restaurant ‘The Matelote’. Following his own path, he handed back the star and started all over with a new concept. Soon after, the Red Guide again awarded him a star, this time around for … the Gin-Fish.

The Gin-Fish is small, trendy but a very cozy venue. Don’t worry about what to choose. The chef does it for you with his set menu!

Johan Segers is one of these typical chefs. If you see him, you can tell he’s a cook. The way he looks over his glasses you see immediately he’s a gourmet from the old style. And that’s maybe why The Red Guide took away one of his stars.

So is Chef Segers too classic to be relevent? I don’t think so. No, you are not going to find technique-concept cuisine à la Ferran Adrià. You will find a grand master’s interpretation of the Escoffier cuisine. Real food, real cooking and real taste! The restaurant is in a 16th century building and a host to one of the finest wine cellars in Belgium.


The chef and his wife set up this restaurant in one the coziest areas of Antwerp. Close to the Cogels-Osy lei, they offer you a classical French cuisine in an amazing art nouveau building.

This former tea house, police office, and sewing school stayed almost intact during the last century.

Go for whatever you like on their menu. You can’t make a mistake! The Red Guide rewarded them with a Michelin star for their efforts.

Grote Hondstraat 2
2018 Antwerp
0032 /3 239.90.03

Reservations at these restaurants are absolutely essential especially on weekends and in the summer.

The restaurant Troubadour is without a Star but deserves honorable mention for the excellent food and a good price/value ratio.

Michelin Star Restaurants Around Antwerp

'T Zilte ** 2 Stars

Viki Geunes of 't Zilte in Mol is elected by GaultMillau to chef of the year 2008. And I quote Paul Gelders, General director of the 'GaultMillau'guide:

"Geunes knows how to bring top ingredients together and turn them into a perfectly balanced dish. He hounours each original taste of every ingredient."

He combines respect and great knowledge of the product with new technology and modern cooking. He is one of the greatest chefs of his generation and Michelin already awarded him with two stars. He's one of the protagonists of the new Spanish style cooking.
