We had a very nice meal at this restaurant but not being a vegetarian (my wife and daughter are) I was slightly disappointed with what I was offered but my wife and daughter loved it. It was also a bit pricey for what you got.

Creative, innovative and delicious. Not cheap, but definitely worth, it if you want a gastronomical vegetarian experience. We’ll be back for more!

Unprofessional personnel pretending to be professional, bad food pretending to be fine dining. I am vegetarian since over 20 years, know a lot about good vegetarian dishes and cuisine. This is nothing close to it. Dislike very much also the concept of no free choice...More

Just fantastic!! Went here for a diner with a good friend, never expected that I would experience a fine high class culinary adventure. Certainly, if you go for the full menu, you will pay +- 100€-person, but it's absolutely worth it. The welcome is very...More

Some of the best vegetarian food I’ve ever had was to be found here. A couple of the cocktails on the tasting menu were a bit odd, but then some others - notably the gingered gin - were sublime. Multilingual staff, very obliging, dealt with...More

Hortense delivered on its promising concept based on vegetables. The dishes were well executed, almost all of them were surprising, the cocktails were truly excellent, the whole design and concept of the restaurant simply works. I was not convinced by the use of granola in...More

The name of the restaurant is Humus x Hortense; the previous Hortense spirits & cocktails no longer exists (though confusingly, it says 'Hortense chapter 2' on the front window. You can opt for 5 or 6 courses (€40 - €50) from a set menu (and...More

The menu is very complicated and inflexible even when you have dietary limitations. The food was average, and made the whole pretentious touch particularly ridiculous. We waited 55 minutes between the first and second dish. And we also waited over an hour before being served...More

The incredible chef of Humus Botanical Gastronomy and the excellent mixologist of (former) Hortense will take you on a food pairing journey flavored by belgian gardens and country side. First grade spirits will meet herbaceous conconctions and vegetables for a meal that you will remember...More

A fairly pricey meal (€150 for 2) but well worth it. 5 courses of exciting veggie food with drinks pairings. Only complaint is that service is a little on the slow side.
