The Nuance restaurant (2 ** Michelin) can offer you a great experience in gastronomy. Each and every dish is a treasure of creativity and offers a wide array of tastes and structures. First choice products, very tasteful dishes, great variety. All this to enjoy in a modern but cosy setting with a caractere of its own. Not to forget :... More

Sunday lunch, with a few large tables present. Went for 'à la carte' to avoid the usual 'synchronization' of dishes with these larger groups.Delightful amuses with our drinks. North Sea Crab as an appetizer an Turbot as main dish. .I can frankly not remember similar dishes that were better than this. Very nice wine list, with an unusual selection of... More

The decor of Nuance is on the bland side, but what’s on the plate is almost art. Colours, textures, composition: very, very impressive! I can imagine this swoops you away. But alas. This excellence is not matched in taste. In fact, is was disappointing. If you’re a fan: best stop reading. This is a harsh review. But that’s certainly for... More

We've been here two times and both times it was wonderful. The chef's style of cooking and dressing up the plates is something we admire very much. A truly fun and gastronomic evening both times we were here. Sofie is a superb hostess. The rest of the staff is sometimes a bit unexperienced, probably they're working here as part of... More

Judging from the menu, food presentation and taste, the Nuance chef is a genius. Not your typical Michelin star restaurant, this chef is obviously enjoying what he is doing, mixing and coming up with an explosion of flavors and his own dishes. Service in general is efficient, polite, competent but a bit stiff (you feel not all the service staff... More

We were invited by very good friends. They told us we were going to a rather new restaurant halfway Antwerp and Brussels. They didn't tell us tough it was a 2 stars Michelin with an outstanding sommelier. We had a marvellous evening. The food was really top edge! The service was very caring and polite, the wine recommendations outstanding. The... More

Had only one experience not so long after my first time in Hof van Cleve. I found the difference between both huge. I still prefer the combination of food that you still recognize with an explosion of taste in a sauce or the little extra's you find on your plate. My impression was that it is overdone. I was disappointed

This was my second visit to this restaurant. Upon my first visit i had a lovely meal but was not impressed with the wine selection to accompany the meal. I made up my mind before going back in having my own wine selection this time. Immediately the sommeliers face turned somewhat dissapointed and by my second choice of bottle he... More

If you happen to pass through Belgium, don't hesitate and try to book a table at Nuance. Chef Thierry Thys will impress you with a wonderful set of dishes in a tasting menu. If you order wine, you'll enjoy how it is paired to the dishes that are served. This is haute cuisine as it should be: balanced across the... More

Three of us had an wonderful experience in this restaurant. As usual we go for tasting menus. Here it costs €85-110 depending on the number of formal courses you want. The rapport qualité/prix is excellent for this level of cooking.There are wine pairing options as well. There were at least three amuses bouches before we hit the menu proper. The... More
