The chef explains the menu himself. Even shares his kitchensecrets. You can choose the surprise menu or order a la carte. The chef's wife knows about wines. Good value for your money. The tables are a bit too close for my taste. But the decor is warm and inviting.

we had Christmas dinner in Voila and with all our experience in eating outside it can be concluded that place is really the place to go. It was very well organized: you had the time to discuss and they gave you the feeling: we have the time so don't hurry. In other restaurants they look whether you are finished to... More

We had the five course surprise dinner for two. Excellent food accompanied by a fine choice of wines. They take great care of their customers on a very nice non-invasive way. The only disadvantage - as with all restaurants with open kitchens - is the smell of the cooking getting into your clothes.

They offer a five course surprise diner for €38,50. Indeed this was a surprise! The food was of good quality and the atmosphere was nice too. I like the concept of just sitting down and see what you get on your plate. This way you try something else for a change. Nice people and good service as well.

Went there with a colleague, and was excited by all the positive reviews from TripAdvisor and Google. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the service attentive and the prices very reasonable, both for food and wine. Got served a pidgeon dish which may have been one of the best things I have tasted in my entire life. Pure... More

Following the many very positive reviews here we took the opportunity to visit Voila. We were not disappointed. We felt welcome right after we entered the door and were very pleased with the service the whole evening. The waiter did an excellent job explaining the menu, the dishes and the possibilities when it comes to wine list. The 5 course... More

Took my family for a thank you dinner to this restaurant, I used to know the previous cafe at the same location. The food was amazing, service impeccable and atmosphere very warm. You try food combination that you normally would not put together but the result is a delight for your mouth.

Visiting the Voila without any previous information this was one of the biggest surprises ever. The personnel greeted and treated my friends and me with a great, honest smile and true hospitality and explained that there is only a five course surprise menu. Appetizer, soup, main course, closing and dessert as well as the recommended wines and coffees were absolutely... More

My friend and I recently visited Voila. Wow! What a great place (I almost don't want to write this review in fear that it will make this place too busy and difficult to get reservations - but they deserve to be acknowledged for their great work). It is a 5 course, fixed menu set up (although they asked if I... More
