Sir Anthony Van Dijck, Antwerp

16 Oude Koornmarkt
Belgium 2000
Tel: 32 3231 6170's insider take:

Tucked away on a side street and featuring a bright courtyard, this restaurant once boasted Michelin stars, until owner-chef Marc Paesbrugghe got tired of the hassle and restyled it as a more laid-back eatery specializing in French cuisine. Not to worry: The more-typical Belgian food (fillet of calf with leeks, potatoes and rosemary, or duck steak with orange and dauphine croquettes) is as good as ever, but now dinner is served in two sittings and the prices are lower (not cheap—just not as stratospheric as they once were). And though Sir Anthony has fallen out of the limelight, advance booking is still essential.

Closed Sunday.
