Bar Bulot by Hertog Jan

Gert De Mangeleer & Joachim Boudens

Chic, intimate and welcoming, Bar Bulot adds its classic blue and white hues and laid-back metropolitan vibe to the Botanic’s historic ambiance. Anything is possible in this relaxed brasserie: business meetings, a romantic tête-à-tête or a rendezvous with friends. Part of the Hertog Jan Restaurant Group and sister to Michelin-starred Bar Bulot in Bruges, the restaurant has been sensitively integrated into the ancient grounds of the Botanic. It’s the place to be for a contemporary spin on French and Belgian classics.

Michelin Guide 2022

‘This smart, cosmopolitan brasserie, Antwerp’s offshoot of Bruge’s Bar Bulot, is set in the lavish Botanic Sanctuary Hotel. Traditional dishes such as vol-au-vent and veal kidneys in mustard are consummately updated to suit today’s palates. Top-notch ingredients and contemporary flavours, by way of exotic spices, add character to each dish.’
