RAS – Restaurant Aan De Stroom in Antwerp, Belgium | Michelin Recommended

RAS, the Restaurant on the Stream, is a chic and modern dining establishment overlooking the Schelde, and the docks in Antwerp. This distinguished restaurant has also been mentioned in the ‘Michelin Guide’s Point of View‘ recommendation for both its fine views and delicious flavors. RAS is certainly a special place to dine, and I enjoyed it for both of its magnificent qualities.

I came across RAS while strolling the pier in Antwerp, and my fine dining radar was spot on when I decided that this was the place I was to have my lunch. The outdoor seating was inviting, and since it was a sunny day I decided to have a seat with a view of the Schlede River. From that point on, I feasted on sumptuous dishes at a restaurant that would become the best dining experience that I had while visiting Belgium.

Greetings from Belgium!

RAS is a sleek and upscale restaurant with distinguished architecture and design. It has a clean and modern atmosphere that has been described as “understated chic”. The menu offerings are traditional European, but with a modern twist. It is one restaurant that I have recommended to those who are visiting Antwerp; it is an outstanding dining experience through and through.

–On the Table–

First of all, I need to note that the service here at RAS was fantastic. Everyone was very attentive, friendly, and helpful. My server was terrific, and he translated the whole seasonal menu to me since it was not in English. The regular menu was in English, so no problems there.
