Life Is Art

Top choice international in Antwerp

Loose cushions on bench seats, brocante mirrors, an old piano and a dangling canoe-skeleton all conspire to create a casually quirky venue for super-fresh food that changes so regularly that you'll have to ask the waitstaff for details.

If it's available don't miss the sublime tataki (seared raw tuna) starter. With fresh ginger tea (€3) and inexpensive beer/wine options from €2/5, non-eaters will be tempted to linger on the sunny street terrace on weekend afternoons or in the bar section where there's live jazz on Fridays from 9pm.
