The restaurant is located in a small street out of the noice of the market. The old building is nicely restored and has an initmite atmosphere. We had lunch (3 courses for 34€). The appetizers were nice, starters were goat cheese presented on a lovely way or mussels with herbs. Main course was porc or cotfish, dessert melon with rubarber... More

When we travel, we always look for good restaurants. We live in Belgium and went to Durbuy for a couple of days. After checking all the restaurants in Durbuy (it is so small you can walk and check them all...) we choose this one. It was really the best meal we've ever had until now. Delicious tastes, every dish. Pure... More

We have been here for lunch and returned a couple of days later for dinner. The quality of the food is really good, be sure to visit the restaurant when visiting Durbuy.

We've been here to celebrate the anniversary of my parents and we enjoyed every minute in this intimate restaurant.The interieur is very lovely, cosy, and the tables and chairs are dressed with white naps.It's small, so the tables are quiet close to eachother but there's is enough space. We took me menu at 33 € (gourmand-menu) and it was very... More

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
