Enjoy the "small" menu and nice dishes. Very cosy atmosphere in a small street in the city of Durbuy. In front you can eat on a terrace but inside you can feel the real atmosphere. "honest" price quality. No Luxury

The menu options for 30 euros are starter + mains, mains + desert, starter + starter. We chose 1 starter + mains and Mains + desert. Billing was wrong. It was corrected immediately. I think the hope was we would not notice. This is a trick a lot of tourist trap restaurants try. Perhaps they think we are stupid. The... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B owner...And we were really surprised! The restaurant has a nice cosy atmosphere with a local touch. NOT the crowded and pushy atmosphere of the tourist restaurants along the town square! (read this as a warning and make sure you reserve a table in advance!) The food is also local with local...

Food is decent albeit somewhat overpriced for what you get. Prix fixe menu for 30E which includes two items, either an appetizer and main dish or a main dish and a dessert. If you don't want the prix fixe menu and want to order ala carte (even tho that is an option via their menu) be prepared for subtle but... More

The atmosphere in this restaurant is great; it is located right in the centre of Durbuy and its décor is exactly what you would expect from a traditional bistro. Such a shame that the food isn't! We went for the first time on a Saturday evening for dinner, which we enjoyed, and therefore we decided to go back for lunch... More

charming? yes. Good food? um, average. they claim "irish Beef" which is indeed fantastic beef. If this WAS Irish Beef it was the red headed step child. Tough & flavorless. Would have paid for salt, alas no one came near the table to ask. I have eaten at both Le Recolettes and Saint Amour - both are head & shoulders... More

Comfortable, good wine selection, fresh food, best are the appetizers. You can make your choice eather two appetizers, one appetizer and a main course. The menue changes within a couple of weeks. Nice furniture, in summer very nice terrace to sit outside, feels a little bit like Provence. Booking a table during the weekend is a good idea.
