It's located out of Brussels, but we didn't regret. The food was just perfect, I can not expect more. From the starter to dessert, it's really well prepared and using the best quality and fresh. I will come back again for next trip.

For my dad’s 50th birthday, my mom organized a dinner party with friends at the Hof van Cleve. It is located in a quiet and beautiful area. We could choose a five or seven course menu. We took the seven courses ‘Freshness of nature’. They were all small plates with fresh seasonal vegetables. There was originally dealt with flavours and... More

For those who want to know with who I am compairing it, please check my other reviews. The food is the best. It is not avant garde. The downside: the price. It was the most expensive restaurant in Belgium before, and now it has made his prices even higher. A lot higher. But it's still worth it. Too bad I... More

What an experience! Everything was perfect. Wonderful sensations for your eyes and palate. Friendly service, you feel at ease as from the beginning. Fine wines are poured generously. A higher level than any other michelin starred restaurant I visited.

Since we are living close to the Hof van Cleve, we regularly go there for special occasions. For me, this is the top of gastronomy. Everything is made to perfection. Impeccable and very friendly service. Of course the price is high, but money well spent. You can choose between the menu and à la carte. I would recommend the grilled... More

Absolute top. In all details. We had very high expectations, and they all came true. World class from the moment we entered till the moment we left. 3 star Michelin plus.

I visited the restaurant a couple of times. Food is very fine and high quality. The interior is missing something, too much distilled. We had the 5 course menu for two persons and payed 770€. I was very very much disappointed about the coffee.The coffee was only served with 6 very small Dutch doughnuts and a cake called Madeleine. Nothing... More

The cuisine here is creative and delicious, service is attentive and considerate, and the dress code is informal, making this a relaxed, pleasant and unpretentious setting for a truly great culinary experience. The fields surrounding this elegant fermette are sown with a unique display of cornflowers, poppies, daisies and other wild flowers. The lunch menu offers a (relatively) inexpensive option.

Thank ML-Brussels
