Good for: Romance, Entertaining clients
Dining options: Dinner, Reservations
Description: situated in a rustic house along the Brussels ring-road, very near to the ?Forêt de Soignes?. From the moment you enter this establishment you will experience a particularly pleasant atmosphere thanks to its Havana wood furniture, the no-nonsense table covers and the elegant wall-lighting. Chef Damien particularly likes inventive and refined cuisine, using high-quality products flavoured with mild herbs (not spicy).

The food was really special: presentation, taste, originality. But when I am supposed to pay more than 60€ each I appreciate the kindness. This restaurant has a fantastic potentiality but the smile is really missing.. In case I dont like the ingredients of a dish of the menu and I ask for a change, I can pay to be satisfied,... More

This is a restaurant where you book your table and it's for the entire evening - no rushing to get you out of the door for that '2nd sitting' ! The food is tasty, superbly cooked and expertly served, together with a varied selection of excellent wines. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for and if doesn't disappoint,... More

I had been in this restaurant before, and had very good memories of excellent food. I now went back with some friends, we were a bit disappointed. The food was not bad, but not excellent neither. Just a decent meal for a fair price as you can get in many places. The combinations were a bit too safe, sometimes a... More

Five of us went there for a foodie outing. We took one their menus with recommended wines. The dishes were all refined and imaginative (starting, in fact, with some interesting apéritifs). The presentation was excellent. The service from the owner was friendly and professional - simple rather than pompous announcements of the dishes but, on request, as much information as... More

A year ago I participated in one of the cooking courses that is held in the restaurant on Saturday mornings and I have always wanted to return just to eat. Yesterday, I went back with a friend. The restaurant was almost full, but it is very quiet. The interior is simple and there is not very much atmosphere. Basically you... More

Very good food in a small and cosy restaurant. The food was very good and so was the service. We went with some friends but it would also be very nice for a dinner for two. The service is correct while at the same time in a nicely relaxed atmosphere.

A real gastronomic experience for those prepared to venture just a little bit further for a treat. The room is small and simple, the service friendly and informal, but still correct. The menu is not long, but conceived with great care using seasonal produce imaginatively. There are three course, five course and 8+ course menus at EXTREMELY reasonable prices each... More

Visited this restaurant for the 2nd time with high expectations given the 16 rating in Gault Millau. Although the quality progressed during the diner, the overall quality does not justify a 16 rating. In total only +/- 10 dishes available (split of first and main courses and desert). As the crab in the first course was OK the cod combined... More
