Dôme Antwerp

Dôme, a place that has remained unchanged since 1893, is charged with history and emotion. Originally built in Antwerp’s Zurenborg district by architect Joseph Bascourt. The Café du Dôme has lived many lives over the centuries, first as a police station, then as an elementary school, and finally as a renowned restaurant. Dôme has nevertheless retained its name and uniqueness, symbolizing its timeless character.

Built in a neo-Flemish Renaissance style, with a hint of Baroque, this historic building was restored to its former glory by Sophie and Julien Burlat in the early 2000s. Today, Dôme is more than just a restaurant; it’s a symbol of Antwerp’s rich past and its gastronomic culture.
