Going to Michel's is always a pleasure for mind and body. This is a very classic and good Belgian/French fine restaurant that is following the seasons. The chef Robert is not somebody who makes a lot of fuss, he's just cooking very well and the dishes are speaking for themselves. The proposed menus are always very nicely composed at interesting...

I found Michel by reviewing the Michelin guide so I had no recommendations or previous experience. As I often go to Michelin restaurants, ihave visited more than 50 I know what I am looking for. It was a very fortunate choice as the experience was way above expectations of a one star Michelin. Food was amazing! The place is located... More

I went there with my girl friend and I for a 5 set 'degustation' menu. Great experience at all level except small details like the clams a little bit too salted when served with the cod or the proposed wine not fully in line with the dishes. But it remain details. First starter a langoustine carpaccio was a marvel. Friendly... More

More classic cuisine but certainly worth a visit. A good example of Belgium's finest cuisine in a no-nonsense environment with attention to detail and the well being of their guests. We would have loved some more originality and creativity. Close to Brussels and with excellent parking facilities around.

Service was very good , staff was professional and friendly . Food was also very tasty and even if we booked for a "resto days" which is a cheaper menu than usual , we didn't feel any difference in the service or food quality . The food is about simple products where the taste and textures are genuine . No... More

We had dinner at the Michel restaurant which actually was not the best one. Food was in general OK. Nice presentation, but I found a piece of a toothpick in my dessert... it should not happen at this level. The real problem though was the service. After a very good start and quite (too) quick of change from snacks to... More

Good value for money, original cuisine, excellent chef and service. A very good one Michelin star restaurant not far from Brussels. The must is the kindness and friendliness of the owners which shows all over the food, the drinks and the service. A place where to go, no risk of being disappointed.

Beautiful restaurant, family-friendly (we went with a little girl 11 months old and they've been very helpful), absolutely gorgeous food, well thought menu. If i am to be picky for that price, service was a bit of a let down - they were not at all proactive, we sat with empty glasses without anyone noticing few times... Had to ask... More

Visited this restaurant on a special occasion "week of the restaurent" and the food was really nothing special. The sitting area is nice but the service was not great also. Better food and service at restaurant " terborght" in Huizingen.
