Fine dining

Setting is refined, the menu we took was 7 or so courses, each of the dishes was carefully composed; enjoyed every one of them. Great ingredients and contrasts superbly prepared. It is not cheap but it is worth every euro.

This is not a cheap restaurant, but if you have to celebrate a special occasion, this is definitely one of the top restaurants in Belgium

It's a Michelin 2 star restaurant apparently, although I could not see what the fuss was about. We had a private dining in the upstairs area. Along one wall they have some modern art that (I'm not exaggerating), is a pile of building wood, some painted orange. I asked if it was not finished yet? They told me it was.... More

We have had lunches and dinners here already 4 times and were amazed every time. Everything on your plate contributes to the dish and doesn't just act as filler, decoration or gimmick. Beautiful combinations of ingredients which, in synergy, create a greater end result. The chef apparently puts a lot of effort in cooking according to season and changes the... More

Location is impressive, service almost impeccable, the food is from nice to amazing but the portions are minuscule,… For appetizers and starter, I don’t mind too much, but for a main dish, three “pinks” of pheasant seems like a joke,..

We dined at Pastorale with 2 friends early in June and we had a beautiful evening. The restaurant decor was fun and quirky, unlike most stiff and formal Michelen star restaurants. Some of the staff were also stiff but there were a couple who managed to have some fun while still providing brilliant service (especially the Dutch sommelier!). We opted... More

My wife invited me for lunch in what I would call a particular and pretty original restaurant. A bronze statue of and by Jan Fabre is welcoming you at the entrance and once inside you are overwhelmed by a wooden structure designed by Arne Quinze. We were seated in the room which is totally painted in black and where Quinze's... More

Our 4th and so far best 2 star this year (in 3 different countries). We thought service was a bit formal but simply perfect, so we don't agree with many others here. Same thing for the price: Without wanting to sound snobbish: "only" 240 Euro for the two of us (85 pp for the menu) and had about 10 dishes... More
