Exceptional dining experience

Fabulous food and service. Wine was wonderful. This is clearly one of the best restaurants in the country. Only compliant is that it took too long for them to seat us. They thought we were waiting on one more person, which they should have asked about sooner and not left us waiting for so long... read more

Beautiful place. Good service. Good food. Lots of different tastes. Elegant and chic without being overwhelming. Relaxed atmosphere. A very personal comment , I found it a bit too creamy and buttery, but I suppose it s just the tradition in french cuisine.

Located on the enchanting setting of the Foret de Soignes, le Chalet de la Foret can be considered, quite rightly, as the best restaurant in Brussels. Enchanting is the best word, everything is considered superlative, starting with creative cuisine, varied, the Chief is in constant progression. Whether you like meat, fish, poultry or wild game, you will find your happiness... More

Michelin stars are very much deserved. The restaurant is literally in the middle of the forest. Food and service are excellent. Staff friendly. Restaurant is ideal for special,occasions, be them for business or personal celebrations.

Been there on a Friday night for a special evening with two close friends. Expectations were high but unfortunately not fulfilled. We opted for the 5 courses set menus which the maître recommended in order to get a complete overview of the offer. From a michelin starred restaurant you expect your tastes to get challenged. You expect some extent of... More

Excellent restaurant: excellent food with an amazing list of wines, high quality service and, very important, it was not invasive. We could have our discussion in a cozy environment. The prices are high but for such quality you can also spend such money.

Amazing food, beautiful food. Each dish tastes so amazing! But what a disappointment on the service. Staff was not too friendly. Staff needs to be very attentive and be on top. They were not. For example, my glass went empty, did they offer another glass of champagne while waited for our table? When bringing dishes, they need to be explained.... More

I have been several times to the restaurant over the past 5 years. No doubt the food is very good. However, in August I tried to reserve a table for myself and my wife at the occasion of our 44th wedding anniversary but was told that "the restaurant was virtually fully booked; there was a single table left, but it...

It was already a few years since I ate there. Today it's even better!Easy parking and wonderful surroundings. You are personally welcomed when you arrive. Nothing to say about the dishes. Just amazing. So, if you have an exceptional event to celebrate or a big customer to invite, this is the place to be.

I've dined at this restaurant 6 times in the past 5 years, twice in 2014, and the a la carte courses are very very good. I can very warmly recommend this place, and the service is impeccable. Every taste is a piece of heaven, and you end up wondering why you aren't eating like this all day every day... I... More
