This is the first time that we had a problem with the overall rating for this restaurant on TA.
We found the food just ok, it's more a catering quality than something else.
The portions were big, it's not expensive, but at the end we concluded that we prefered to pay a little bit more for another quality.
The very good service and the wine brought it to an "average".

I have to start by saying that the food was delicious and the waiter/barman pleasant and helpful. However, our first impression was not great. The interior looked and felt like a bar and the menu was short, although there were a lot of specials on the board. The waiter/barman did his best to help us pick, but struggled a bit with translation. The restrooms were perhaps also what you would expect from a bar. It was quiet when we arrived, except for a few drinkers who eyed us up. But that soon changed and, by the time our meals arrived, the place was busy. It looked popular, but I think our expectations were falsely inflated by its rating on Tripadvisor.

A really cute restaurant with a great selection of food. The specials are wide ranging and tasty-sounding - the one I had was delicious (Prawns in a garlic sauce). The portions are generous and the staff are friendly.

I went with my husband and friends and we had a really pleasant, leisurely evening. I would go again for a romantic meal, or for a girls' meal out too. I'm pleased I reserved a table as even mid-week it was busy.

Spending a few days in a very cold January in Antwerp, we chose Reload for one night, having read positive TripAdvisor Reviews. And they weren't wrong! Superb atmosphere, service & food, all at very reasonable prices. Great selection of wines; again at very acceptable prices. We booked via e-mail address on web-site and one of the co-owners replied efficiently within a day and confirmed booking. Website out-of-date and needs updating, as menu is far better and extensive than on web pages; also photographs show restaurant as it must have been some time ago (now much improved)! Besides the listed menu, a large chalk board with a number of additional selections is changed daily. It's all in Dutch/Flemish, but staff are happy to spend time translating & explaining. Tried several restaurants in the city and would list Reload as our number one choice!
