We visit this restaurant more than then times with friends or family. The husband in the kitchen and the lady of the house is taking care of the customers. Super friendly atmosphere in a old house. French cuisine. Serving very fresh food. Fish,meat, etc..prepared at it best at more than a reasonable price.

For many years I have with various companies guest in numerus clausus. Always eaten really delicious, exquisite fine wines, correct and jovial service, all in a cozy setting. Also for a cozy dinnet for two this is a top address!

I guess, at least for this restaurant in Lier. For a very affordable price (you will pay the same in a brasserie) you get star-cuisine, but you don't feel like being in a stiff star restaurant (I know, there are lots of other start restaurants). The six of us took the market menu, and we all were very pleased with... More

Located in the heart of Lier, you have to know the adress or you'll just pass the entrance. Don't show up without a reservation though. We had the Four Course Menu, with selected wines. Service was very good, the St Jacob's fruit was the best I ever had.

This is the chef / restaurant that doesn't have the ambition to the Michelin star, but for us they are very close to it. Seasonal products cooked perfectly in a classic manner. This is not the place for extensive dining (ie only 1 menu), but you can easily pick up several dishes from the carte and create your own menu.... More
