A delicious indulgence

We ordered the Malle Poste menu and sat back and had a delicious food journey over the next two hours. Yes, it is expensive, but yes, it is totally worth it. Each course is carefully thought out and explained to you as it is presented. It is fresh and creative and fun to try things that you may... read more

We were on the way back from a hike in the Ardennes and wanted to have some nice food. We were clearly underdressed for this kind of place which is very elegant. We enjoyed the 3 course 35 euros menu plus an amuse-bouche was offered. Service is not great and be careful when ordering water. A bottle of their tap... More

The restaurant is nicely decorated by the landlady who also arranges beautiful flowers at the tables. Which ads to a festive atmosphere. We were two couples and opted for the menu (50 euro, two starters including lobster, main course consisting of pigeon, desert). The food was prepared to perfection and the service very helpful. All up to the standard of... More

We ordered a menu of 35€. We've got an exquisit tartare de dorade as starter, a rouget and mourceau de porc as main and a mousse de mangue as dessert. The dishes where all very tasty and of superbe quality compared to the price. The restaurant is also part of a hotel. Both hotel and outside guests meet in one... More

What more to say about this extraordinary place serving delicious and fine food, wines and spirits. We came here for a romantic dinner (in winter) and enjoyed a great seating next to the fireplace ... Top service, top food ... you enjoy your apéro and coffee/digestif in "le salon" in this most beautiful, romantic decorated restaurant. An adress to remember... More

My wife and I had the 3-course set menu, while the kids (8 and 10 years) split an adult size steak frite order. Everyone was initially served an amuse bouche consisting of several delicious little bites. The first course in the set menu was a wonderful gazpacho soup with bits of some kind of fish in it. This was followed... More

The setting of the restaurant is very nice on the grounds of the hotel La Malle Poste. Since, we were staying at the hotel we thought it would be nice to eat there. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. For starters, we had gazpacho which was ok but it strangely had a piece of hot fried fish on top which simply did... More

We started with a drink in the garden, which came with 4 little appetizers and then moved into the beautiful inside. Restaurant has different rooms, so while quite a few people can be seated, it never seems crowded. The chef and his wife are never far away and make sure the service is perfect. Had the la calèche menu, including... More

In this elegant restaurant I had a delicious dinner. The french dishes are cooked awesomly, the cheese assortment is superb and I had one of the best chocolate dessert ever. The atmosphere and the dress code are quite stylish, but this is normal for a restaurant of this kind in Belgium. Recommended if you want to spend more for an... More

We had the Calèche menu, 60€, five courses. Modern cuisine, well paired ingredients,(e.g. the lobster with chestnutcream was marvellous). A large winelist, only French wines (traditional in the frenchspeaking part of Belgium); rather expensive. We had a excellent Chateauneuf du Pape for 84€ (!). Very cosy sitting with the open wood fire burning, friendly staff,but rather stiff. But eating at... More
