After a pleasant welcoming by the owner, an exquise five course menu and excellent adapting wines, the waiter came to us (last table left) at 23h00 and asked us to leave the restaurant, because they wanted to close. We were terminating an important discussion and asked for a final coffee and then would leave. They refused and urged us to... More

I went for a lunch on thursday the 6th of november ; we took the 6 courses menu because it is the best way to discover the taste of the chef and his style of cooking. The service was very good, what you expect in a one star michelin restaurant. The atmosphere was spot on, you feel very comfortable in... More

Although it seems to be an old farm, inside you discover a lot of surprises: the menu is limited but what is made is of such a high level and an unique presentation, this is extra ordinary. The open kitchen let's you enjoying how the chef and staff are working with a smile to prefer these masterpieces.

Amazing, exciting food. Beautiful restaurant and totally unpretentious staff. We loved having lunch here - the most amazing taste experience! It's not cheap but it was a really good price for some of the best food I have ever tasted. We will definitely return to this lovely place. Thank you!

The hotel/restaurant is located near a highway but you dont hear a thing when you are eating. The scenery is very nice with a view on a small forest and grasslands with cows. Inside it has a relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant is divided in smaller rooms so you never have a crowded feeling. The food itself was very good. For... More

A very pleasant experience. Lovely setting, even though a tad too close to a motorway, sober and elegant interior, professional service and innovative and fulfilling food. We have not found a single course we did not like, both under the aesthetic and, more importantly, the taste, flavour, texture etc. etc. The wine pairing was carefully selected and reasonably prices in...
