“Very good food but little bit expensive”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

The Pumphouse is a multi floor restaurant that is located in an old pump house in Antwerp. The kitchen serves excellent food, the staff is friendly and attentive and the wine list nice and long. The food is a bit expensive but I believe it is worth it. Parking is free but can be an issue when it is busy. The location is a bit upscale but the dress code is not enforced. When the restaurant is busy you can still hear what your neighbor says without him/her having to yell. I come here maximum once per year but this restaurant never disappoints

“Great location great food”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

This is a fantastic restaurant if you are near Antwerp. It is an historical dock house converted to an ultra chic restaurant but keeping the main features. Food is very good, well presented and if you ask for the daily menu, not outrageous (certainly not cheap). Good service and overall a great experience

“When you want something special”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

I would definately recommend to have a meal at "Het Pomphuis". It is a very unusual place, has its own charm and character. Its eclectic atmosphere will make your special occasion meals even more special. It will be appropriate to dress up for this place.

If you are interested in some interesting facts about the building and its history, you can always ask the staff to provide you with some materials which they have at reception. Management is obviously proud of the history of Pomphuis and try their best to keep the restaurant in harmony with the title of "a new pearl of Antwerpen". Good job!

I will not describe the food - 5 out of 5 for that, delicious! Wine list was great, too.

The only thing that we didn't like (and it's a shame!) was our waitress.. She was grumpy, haughty and miserable to serve us and comparing to other guys who were on the shift with her it was even more noticeable. Taking into account the price level I think it is unacceptable to worry about the face of your waitress. I would have asked to replace her, but because we had such a good time at the dinner that was just a little inconvinience for us. Still, have to reduce my points to 4 for that.
