Stopped off in Mons on way back from the Alps. Really good food, was surprised by the quality and inventiveness displayed. I've eaten at 1 star restaurants that weren't as good. Well done!

If you pass by Mons, do not hesitate to go to this restaurant close to the "grand place". I guess it's better to make reservation as this is not a huge restaurant. Food is really good and can be surprising like the "thon rouge cru et foie gras cuit au torchon" Honestly, I'm used to go to different restaurant and... More

What a great place! We had a fantastic diner, really a gastronomic experience. Sophisticated associations of high quality ingredients, very nice presentation of dishes. And the staff was so friendly and flexible: we were allowed to choose for 2 starters instead of a starter & main; one of us came in 30 min later than the others but they ensured... More

When booking last minute for this interestingly named restaurant we had no idea that we would have a great gastronomical experience in Mons! 3 course menu there could be 2 starters and 1 main instead of dessert as usual. Food was great and innovative. Sure we will go back!

We were lucky to be able to find a free table, although it was at the end of the restaurant not the best place though. But we forgot all about this when the plates with the starters came. What a delight. The rest was even better and the appropriate wines were well balanced. Our evening could not be better. It... More

This smallish restaurant is near to the centre of Mons and aims for fine dining. Staff were dicrete and charming. The lamb was the most melt in the mouh that we have ever had. It is however a little on the expensive side relative to its level, and a badly chipped side plate should never have gotten onto the table.

We really liked this place. It is elegant, but not too much so (since we had our 9 and 10 year olds with us, we were glad not to see white tablecloths). Lots of space between tables, a very modern, minimalist decor. The food was delicious. I was very impressed to find such a place in Mons.

Excellent food but the restaurant misses fine details. The only thing that was truly great here was the food, which is the most important of course. But the rest (cutlery, music, bad dishwasher smells from the kitchen, etc.) was not as great. Just a little push in the other areas would make it a great place for gastronomy. We had... More

Had a four course lunch in this lovely restaurant during my weekend trip to brussels. Appetizer - smoked fish I usually don't eat fish roe but the fish roe in this dish complemented the smoked fish perfectly. My appetite was enhanced and I couldn't wait for the main course to arrive. Starter - Scallops Big, juicy scallops. And guess what!... More
