“Good meat and servings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

We went to this restaurant because both my wife and I are meat lovers. After seeing the picture we were sold.
I asked for the 750gr beef and it's good. The meat is tasty, it's well cooked (medium rare, although they ask your preference) and quite generous. Cannot say it's the best I ever had, but it's quite good.
My wife had grilled mix and it was also very good, although less generous serving.
Our son (2 years old) had the kids menu (chicken) and was quite a lot.
The staff is very friendly and they do their best for you to fell comfortable there.

Recommend to all meat lovers (mainly) but not only.

“Best filet I've ever had.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Came here with my daughter and her family on our last trip to Europe. They raved about how good it was, and we were not disappointed. In fact, it exceeded our expectations and we loved it so much, we came back again for another great meal before we left for home. Located in a great location just off the square in Antwerp near the cathedral. The staff was excellent, the atmosphere was casual and warm, and the owner was great. Again, the food was definitely the best we had on our entire trip through Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and Spain. If you are going to be in Antwerp, this is one place you don't want to miss!!

Excellent service, wonderful owners and staff. The food is consistently very good, excellent steaks cooked over a charcoal fire inthe restaurant. Nice atmosphere and great location just near the cathedral. We love going there!

“perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

Went to the el bife in the april of 2013 after finding it in the trip advisor. We hadn't reserved a table, even that doing so was recommended due to the popularity of the place, as we weren't sure about when we would manage to be there. Even though, the staff found us a table.

The waiter's English were flawless and he was very friendly, cheerful and helpful. The steaks were awesome. Perfectly prepared and perfectly served.

An irrelevant, but cool, fact was that the owner of the place had worked for years in Greece (my home country), so he sat with us and we had a chat in greek :-)
