We love 't Oud Conservatorium. It's not the best restaurant in Mechelen, but there's something, something difficult to put your finger on, that keeps drawing us back. I guess you could say it has the x-factor - that little bit of magic that is missing in many of the 'better' restaurants. Practically, it's got a lot going for it -... More

In the first week of june we visited the restaurant.hotel and enjoyed the buffet very much. The restaurant/hotel is perfectly located behind the grand market, but at a very quiet and green square, so the view is perfect as was the taste of the food. Combined with the super friendly personnel (congratulations to the job student Sofie), we definitely will... More

We were very pleased to have dinner and an enjoyable evening after a having travelled all day. Even if you are French-only speaking you may find waiters to communicate with.
