From apetizer till coffee, everything is just georgeous! Starter was baked seabas on watermellon carpaccio. Main dish was excuisit lamb. Dessert was a piece of art. Wines are perfectly matched with the dishes. Service is great. You visit Hasselt and you want enjoy nice cuisine, don't wait and visit Kwizien.

One of my favorite restaurants in Hasselt! Not too many tables, a warm and personal service, and excellent food and wine. I prefer going here then going to some star restaurants in Hasselt.

It had been over a few years since I last visited this restaurant, and as we had something to celebrate this week, we decided to give De Kwizien another go. We opted for the 4-course dinner, called "Kwizien menu". The general quality of both food and the presentation was close to flawless over most courses. From the amuse-bouches to the... More

Enjoyed an extensive multi-course meal with a group of about 30 people. Impressive management of the dishes for such a large group without giving in on delicate dish dressing or serving rythm. Kudos to the team. If anything can be suggested at all, I would personally simplify the dishes.

Inventive food and dito wines. The high prices go with the territory I suppose, but they were a bit to steep for a family meal. I only can hope I get invited by a business partner.

We had the fantastic menu on a Saturday evening. A good atmosphere and a fantastic service, added to that a delicious menu and a fine selection of exquisit wines. The menu was well balanced, but sometimes the chef added some items which didn't necessarily added someting to the quality. I would suggest focusing on the essential. Lst but not least;... More

Dinner on a weekday right after New Year ... the place was nearly packed and for all the good reasons. Very warmly welcomed, good house champagne and delicate appetizers. There is no 'a la carte' so we took the 4-course menu - very attractively priced - and the choices we made implied fish all the way (except desert :-)). Fresh... More
