As you might guess from the name, InVINcible is a real wine restaurant. The restaurant is located in the heart of Antwerp, somewhat hidden in one of the small streets between the river Scheldt and the Grote Markt. Kenny is both chef and sommelier, which of course explains why the wine and food are so well matched here. Next to some classics from the menu, like the pasta pancetta from the parmesan wheel, the Dorade Royal in salt crust or his special selection of côte a l'os, you can always find some very interesting suggestions. Don't miss the game season here, as the chef makes great game pâ...

A must visit for all wine lovers is Pazzo. Pazzo is a wine restaurant and bar in Antwerp owned by chef Ingrid Neven and sommelier Tom d’Hooghe. On the ground floor the restaurant offers a wide diversity of culinary influences. Think Belgian asparagus with burrata, pigeon from Anjou, salmon sashimi and shrimp tempura. Not to forget are their amazing truffle dishes. I love the truffle risotto! A wide range of wines by the glass have been selected to accompany these wonderful dishes. The wine list is as worldly influenced as the kitchen is and there are some real gems on it. The lovely bar, o...

Zilte is located on the top floor of the MAS museum in Antwerp and offers a breathtaking view of the city. The interior is modern, yet very warm and homely.

Zilte does not have a wine cellar, but a kind of wine attic that you can admire while sitting in the restaurant. Besides a magnificent wine list, sommelier Aaron Moeraert also offers several options by the glass with each dish. Be sure to try...
