Undoubtedly good kitchen, but they pretend more than they can deliver. Cluttered and loud too colorful decor.

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

A variety of breads and cereals, fruits, and milk products. A very good staff. A bit costly. I have seen that it has latest innovations in foods.

While staying at the attached hotel, I dined at Lof for a convenient dinner my first night. I was a bit hungry after traveling. I only ordered an entrée and I thought the food was very good but the portions were on the small side. Presentation was excellent and flavor was wonderful, I just wish there was more! I would...

High tea is always fun and this one is located at a beautiful hotel close to the city center. It's also reasonably priced at €19. However, we arrived 6 min early to our reservation and waited 20 mins to be seated despite the fact that our table was ready. There was an hour delay between each course. Which, I don't... More
