This is a small restaurant in a small town in the Belgian Ardennes, but without doubt the chef is the equal of well known names in great cities. If you are near, go there but be warned it is not cheap, though it is worth every penny. We visited on a Tuesday, when they only offer "les mardis fous" -... More

After a day of biking we came without reservation to this restaurant. Immediately they were looking for a solution to give us a table. Dinner was excellent with excellent mixes of flavours and eye for detail. Also service is very professional !

Modern flair both in the food and the decor. Interesting and tasty combinations and presentation of foods. Well presented and sometimes quite delicious and harmonious. Variation in accompaniments (though tasty) is limited, and therefore repetitive. Very inflexible sevice; though the menu states that any wishes as to allergies etc can be taken into consideration. A vegetarian variation of the menu... More

We had made reservations for La Fleur de Thym (one day in advance was fine) for a Saturday evening. We had gone for a long hike in the Houffalize neighbourhood and I had taken a rough fall, so was in need for some relaxation! And we got lucky, as right behind us a large group with toddlers had come in... More

We booked this restaurant well ahead while staying at a B&B for a festive "pre-birthday" dinner on a Saturday night. As the choice of menus is restricted on that day (understandable, with a full house) we went for the JRE menu, which is, as a previous reviewer said, Michelin star quality. Not so much the choice of ingredients, but the... More

We were so happy that we chose this fantastic restaurant when we visited Houffalize, Belgium. We dined at this restaurant on a Sunday and chose the JRE menu. The quality of the food was Michelin star worthy and the service was impeccable (I do not understand why it has not been awarded with a Michelin star already). Make sure you... More

La Fleur de Thym has given us a perfect evening. In a neat and cozy dining room the highly sophisticated dishes were served with adequate efficiency. We chose the JRE menu with scallops, sea bass and deer filet. It included some less obvious ingredients as Main de Bouddha, crosnes du Japon and lentilles du Puy. For a table companion who... More

Nice gastro without being to die for ! Service very very slow, and people serving not up to standard, regarding cleanliness and appearance. Every dish was describe in length but nobody ever asked if we were pleased with the food! Didn't accept Amex but the check was presented in an Amex check presenter sleeve !!!!

Staff show that they are not realy happy with guests, it is so busy! You have to wait a long time before you get your meal. The food is perfect! I hope they are able to get better staff.
