This is a restaurant for a special meal. The interior design is stunning and the food exceptional. The only thing we weren't sure about was how long it took to have dinner - two and a half hours - but then for a special evening...More

There is lots to like about this restaurant. The room is very pleasant, the tables are large and well spaced, the service is impeccable but relaxed and the food is beautifully presented and flavoured. However, I felt a little bit as though I was meant...More

We had a very nice meal on the first day after the start of a new year. The interior was wonderful and there is a lot of space between the different tables. Just very good for a private conversation and meal. A great adress.

Exquisite food and atmosphere. Would highly recommend the lobster waterzooie and the gingerbread ice cream. Decor was creative with an ocotopus chandelier reminiscent of Jules Verne. The tasting menu is available on Saturday and look very appealing. There was absolutely nothing to dislike.

The food was very good, master-chef class.As usual, it implies small portions,but made out of good ingredients. It is a little off the turist path, in Patershol, which makes it even more attractive. (I allways prefer restaurants use by locals, instead of tourist-traps.) We had...More
