Good food, attracting interior, historical setting

A modern cuisine, offering Value for money. Suggested lunch is good choice. Appetizer and drink before lunch is possible in saloon. During filmfestival one can enjoy live music.

I have stayed in Hotel Reylof for 4 nights and have enjoyed the Restaurant Lof 6 times. Not once did it cross my mind to go and eat elsewhere. The restaurant is modern but warm and the service is excellent. On top the dishes are masterpieces of creativity in layout. More importantly the flavors are perfect. It does not stop... More

We had the 5 course dinner with matching wines. The waiter was very kind and served the best wines. The waiter had a lot of knowledge of wine/food combinations which resulted in some talks about this which we appreciated. The pace of the first three courses was excellent, the last two courses took too long which did not add to... More

We took the 5 course diner with wines. The food was great, not to much, just enough. The sommelier knew what she was talking about and selected the perfect wines for the courses. Excellent staff, great atmosphere. Money well spent!

Food was very good. We had everything ranging from duck to fish and everyone was thrilled. The dessert was really amazing (champagne mousse with strawberry sorbet - just amazing). I normally do not like hotel restaurants for anything except breakfast, but this place was very good and not unfairly priced. The wine list was weak, but Belgium focuses mostly on... More

You already get a culinary orgasm the moment you see your food, thanks to the amazing presentation. This is the ideal restaurant when you're going to celebrate something, seeing as it isn't exactly cheap. But the food is wonderful: small portions, but enough to stop your hunger. This isn't the kind of food you eat loads of: it would ruin... More
