We experienced it twice at the previous location. Both experiences were extraordinary in terms of discovering new tastes, fusion cooking, and all the originality of the chef's cooking style. For the story, it was still a 1 star for our first experience and became a 2 stars right after, which is certainly not the reason why we visited it a... More

As a 2 star Restaurant one must look at the details when spending so much on food. The new location is so much more spacious than before and the cadre is now more up to the level of the Stars that the establishment has. It's not bad, but service is not consistent. Champagne glasses and then wine glasses run dry... More

We had planned for quite a while to go to L'air du temps and were not disappointed certainly by the food. We felt like the decor and atmosphere was just a bit too simple for a two star restaurant but they have just moved to a new location. The food which is of course the most important was just impeccable.... More

I first visited L'air almost three years ago, in their original location: a converted snackbar, no less! The new location is a revolution: a beautiful old farmhouse on a peaceful location. The cuisine is an evolution, a refinement of the chef's approach, leaning heavily on the foodpairing theory while introducing 'fusion cooking' elements (mostly Korean and Japanese). Like the majority... More

We left l'Air du Temps with very mixed feelings. While the food lived up to every expectation for a 2 star Michelin establishment, the service was way under par. From the starters through to dessert we were thrilled by the bold statements made by the chef who prepared a daring combination between Asian (in my view more Japanese) and French... More

Spartan decor, welcome 'water' and 'bread', Delicious snacks as part of the menu. Every dish offering an unexpected combination of flavours, yet with absolute respect for all ingredients.Outstanding presentation with a bit of tongue-in-cheek (e.g. 'moules frites' ...). Carefully selected wines accompanying the menu dishes. Excellent service. Note that the whole team is quite young, but very professional. If you... More

It's in the middle of nowhere but absolutely worth the trip. One of the best restaurants in Belgium and one of the only chefs who brings Asian and European cuisine together in a brilliant way.

The "snacks" were tasty and fun, it had a Asian touch, a nice introduction, it made us curious what to come next... but what followed was not really convincing, some ok dishes some not. The best was the black Rubia Gallega meat this was super tasty but i would have left out the stew served with the rice (overkill) and... More

The food was good and in parts very creative, but I expected more and the service and atmosphere was not on par
