A great restaurant, with delicious food cooked and presented well, with fun and relaxed atmosphere.

The staff are very friendly and are willing to help everyone especially those that don't speak dutch or french.

Our dinner here with friends on a recent Saturday evening reminded me of everything there is to dislike about "typical" Belgian restaurants, such as: - Being ignored by the waiter while he spends ten minutes visiting with regulars sitting at the next table. - Waiting 45 minutes between the starter and the main course. - Being served the wrong dish,...

We booked a table for 11 to cheer us up after a funeral and the Foret did not fail us, we were warmly welcomed, promptly attended to and had a delicious meal, I strongly recommend the 'cote a l'os' but the 'filet americain' was equally good, there is a vast choice of beer on the tap and they are all...

This restaurant only was full in this little village and we understood why. Very good fresh food with a great ambiance. Can recommend the Lemon meringua pie with coconut pasta, very very good....... very simple but good quality, a great moment and a good price. sometimes no need to search complicated
