Le John is not easy to find, even though it's in central Antwerp. In fact, our cab driver had no idea where it was. But don't let that deter you. It's worth the search! We started with Cava, which is the popular alternative to Champagne in much of Flemish-speaking Belgium. With it we ate delicious oysters - some of the best I've ever had. We switched to red wine with the meat course and continued until dessert, with more Cava. All delicious!

Service was not only excellent but warm and friendly. Not the US style of 'My name is ..." friendly, but helpful, quick, and witty.

This is a truely feelgood place. The food is creative and simply delicious, the service is very friendly. The bar upstairs where you can have a drink before or after has an equally lovely atmosphere. I LOVE this place.

The restaurant is situated not far from the south, really an original place.. Some friends recommended it, I had a blast, the food was great, original and inventive... the service was friendly and loved the bar upstairs ( you can even smoke in a separate room :) )
I'll come back for sure...

The place had a charm feeling once we entered. We were invited to the 2º floor to have a drink (no elevator), where no barman was waiting for us. After 10 minutes, we were taken to our table. Good Italian menu. Cold staff. Poor quantity. High price. The same amount of euros spent, knowing that the experience for Le John was Poor and Excellent for Sir Anthony Van dijck.

Cozy interior, nice place... Cocktails are not that good, the Martini I had was somewhat sweet! Oysters were especially tasty.
