Great food, excellent service, cosy atmosphere! Perhaps a menu in English would be a welcome addition. All in all a wonderful experience; highly recommended!

The food was great and Waiter was kindness. I prefer Beef steak and Salmon steak. It’s delicious! About Belgian dish, Stouflee, It’s OK but I prefer other dish.

Hard working attentive service that delivered delicious and tasty freshly cooked food. Great value compared to lesser quality, but higher priced restaurants in Antwerp. Suggest you book in advance at the weekends. Highly recommended.

Menu in Flemish only, so dependent on the waiter to translate everything in accented English.
Starters enjoyable if a little overpriced.
Main courses we ordered were slow in coming and the portions far too large. Luckily my husband's dinner was tasty.
Due to the translated description of my choice, 'a Belgian special' not only was it very disappointing, there was far too much of it.
When the waiter came to clear the table, (my plate was almost untouched) I expressed my dissatisfaction, but wasn't offered anything to make up for it- so we asked for the bill. Again we were kept waiting, until we finally went downstairs, where we were shown the bill on the computer screen, and paid- the whole amount- very expensive for what we had.

Dear Madam, We are disappointed that your visit was not everything you hoped it would be.We understand that you were unsatisfied with the main dish you chose, the other dishes seemed to be OK.It concerns a very local farmers dish because of its simplicity and well sized portion.We always make sure our clients get sufficient information about our specials and we do this in 4 different languages, we're sorry for the inconvenience of having to hear an accent.If the original information was not clear, you could have told us. For the long waiting we would like to apologize, at the moment of your reservation several tables came in together, so it took as longer as usual to serve everyone.We try to spread our reservations but sometimes tables come earlier or later than planned. Everything we serve is homemade and with fresh quality products, our prices are in comparison with similar restaurants relatively low, so we were amazed you consider us expensive. Every client always gets an official VAT ticket

Best meal we’ve had in Belgium. It is a close-run thing in a land of excellent restaurants, but Ernest Bistro was truly marvellous, with the freshest local ingredients prepared simply and deliciously. Wonderful, warm service without condescension. A memorable experience.
