We ate at Volta during a Christmas trip to Belgium and Germany and thought it was great. Both the very cool bar and drinks upstairs overlooking the restaurant and the restaurant and food were excellent. Highly recommended.

The title of the review says it all: food was great, no doubt about that. Before having dinner, you can enjoy an apero in the bar, with view on the restaurant. We had to wait rather long before the waiter attended our table. Not sure he understood what we wanted, we had to repeat several times. I had a "fawlty... More

Great food with a bitter aftertaste of bad service. We came here with the "Jong Keukengeweld"-offer for lunch. It was extremely calm in the restaurant, which was nice. After being seated we got the drink menu and ordered water, a white wine and a beer. The waiter serving us was a bit confusing when explaining what was included in the... More

We started with an aperitif in the loungebar before being seated at our table. G&T was nicely flavoured as it should be. All courses were prepared excellently and wines were great. Prices are in line with a Michelinstar restaurant, however they have not received this award. For me the quality was in line with the prices. Nice evening!

We ordered the 6 course dinner ( not including the langoustines) and were not disappointed.dishes were very aesthetic, flavors were good. Service was good, not intrusive.Wine list was very decent too.A nice way to... More

We had high expectations of this restaurant but were rather disappointed. Stage was set with the drinks. We had to wait 15 minutes before we could order. Once done we got the amuses before we got our drinks (another 15 min later) The amuses set the tone for the cuisine: the base ingredients were very tasteful but were overwhelmed by... More

The restaurant has a very thought through setting with delicate presentation and an aesthetic eye. The room, though industrial in origin, gives a nice and cosy atmosphere. The waiters and staff are very correct, helpful and well educated but lack the spontaneity to make you forget where you are. (American style but european execution). An amazing plus was that, when...

We had a great meal at Volta. We took the standard many (7 courses or so) and we enjoyed every single one of them. What impressed us the most is the creativity in each of the dishes. Also all very well presented. The service is casual : in "Gents" and with a spontaneous, direct type of style. We enjoyed it,... More

We organized a 35 person fixed dinner at Volta. Everything was wonderful. But in particular, the created a large number of unique dishes for our 6 vegans that were truly delicious. Very well executed!
