I am traveling about 60% of my time. All around the world. Between work dinners, receptions or room service working from my hotel room, I love the rare few times that I can escape and take a nice evening for myself.
Last month when in Brussels I decided to rent a car and just spend a night at the Prieure to enjoy the food of Chef Gardinal and the wines selected by his young passionated Portuguese Sommelier.
It is the third time that I do that in the last couple of years. And it is always a pleasure. First you need a GPS. It is a bit difficult to find. Also the mobile phone network is not the best there but is is maybe better like this !
Each time I take the full menu with the pairing wine. The food is superb. The restaurant charming and nicely decorated. The staff is young and professional. The chef is clearly passionated. About the food of course, the quality of the products, the presentation and you see that there is a lot of work done. The result is just fabulous and excellent value for money (bedroom/dinner package ). The bedroom are nice (the bathroom need a bit of renovation but I believe it is planned) and the breakfast a pleasure
I can't wait an opportunity to share my next experience with friends or colleagues !
Really you should go. Don't drive back after all this interesting wine. Just stay overnight !
Gault and Millau is right (18/20). And Michelin should think about an additional star !
