Classy restaurant that serves light, pure and fresh food that is well prepared and presented and tastes delicious. Friendly and professional staff. One minus: the outdoor seats are really uncomfortable.

The restaurant is beautifully styled and the Chef Frédéric Bruneel's creativity, especially with vegetarian dishes, is applaudable. The service, however, was a total disaster. Unfriendly staff, very unprofessional, badly dressed (except for one funny waiter - who was almost angry when our guest spotted a fly in the wine as he served for tasting). They need some serious training, especially... More

We have eaten here on number occasions and never seem to get back to write a review. We tend to go to the area around Durbuy at least twice a year to escape the city. We make sure that of course one of these nights is spent dining here ( we also try to stay with them when rooms are... More

You must have a reservation or you won't get in here...we saw people being turned away. The first course wasn't my cup of tea but the main course was delicious as was the wine. It took a long time for the food to arrive though even for food ordered and prepared fresh. I would recommend this restaurant.

Euro for euro..... Probably the best meal I have ever purchased. This place was amazing. My wife an I enjoyed a wonderful evening here during our trip to Belgium. We shared an appetizer, and wonderful bottle of wine from their well made list (not too big, not to small). Then onto the main course. She had the tenderloin with a... More

Driving from Brussels to Durbuy on a Friday evening after a long working week, dinner with good friends. And It was worth every mile of our drive to the heart of the Ardennes. For friendship as well as gastronomy. Christmas scenery in Durbuy, joyful lights, cobblestone alleys where Hercule Poirot could appear any minute. We toured the village on foot... More

I went here about 5 years ago, the accommodation was lovely, the building is nicely restored and very charming. The food was amazing, the chef takes great care in his food and it shows in the presentation and taste. It's a lovely little town and a nice weekend get-away. Highly recommend it.

Perfect setting in the village of Durbuy. Food and service deserve a Michelin star. Super menu, good value, excellent ambience and, not-surprisingly, superb wine list.

We chose this restaurants because of its Michelin bib gourmand. We have in fact never been disappointed by a restaurant having this quotation. Their terrace on the square looked inviting on this sunny mid-day in August so we picked a table after having asked the waiter. Both my husband and myself ordered the bib gourmand menu that sounded excellent. It... More

We had one of the best meals ever here. Everything we ate was equisite from the salad to the asparagus cake with shrimp to the risotto that melted in my mouth, perfectly grilled wild salmon and chocolate fondant with ice cream. Everything was prepared and served with great care.
