Not that i'm doing every day a michelin star restaurant, but I visited about 10 other places with 1, 2 and 3 star rating. Hertog-jan is the youngest 3 star owner in belgium, and he certainly deserves the 3 stars. I had the great opportunity to being threatened in full luxury in 2013 at a table at the window next...

We went with four people for lunch in one of the last weeks before Hertog Jan closed down on the old location (they will re-open on a new location August 2014). The overall experience was impressive: food, service, staff and seats with views over the open kitchen. We had a three course lunch menu and added the cheese and wine... More

Hertog Jan was my first 3 star Michelin restaurant, so it has a special place in my memory. The entire meal was perfect down to the smallest details, every dish was exquisite both in the way it looked and tasted. They use fresh vegetables, herbs and flowers from their own gardens, which shows on the plate. All the other products... More

We had heard about this fantastic restaurant from one of South Africa's top chefs and booked well in advance for our 30th anniversary in September. In fact, we planned our European trip around the restaurant! And did it live up to expectations! We went for the full six course degustation menu (we had travelled half-way around the world for dinner... More

Wow. Just wow. There's a reason this restaurant has a three star Michelin rating. From service to presentation to flavor and freshness, this meal was absolutely perfect in every way. It was the best meal of my life and I imagine will not be topped for a long time. Well worth the price, I can't even begin to put into... More

In a very pleasant atmosphere, we had a very beautiful combination of flavors and tastes. We had the degustation menu with drinks which was made to perfection. The vegetables were in the most part from their own land and that is fantastic presented. It's simply magnificent and delightful. A must!

Everything was just amazing. When I got the second course, I already touched the sky. Not only the wine, but also the beers were amazing.

Let me say this : it was not my first 3-star restaurant at all but it was my first visit here. Expectations were very high because it was in my home country this time and that means that from all kinds of media you get a good impression of what to expect. We had a seat very close to big... More
