A surprisingly good place

Well, it seems that we did not have any other choice! Most of the nice restaurants were closed on Wednesday. We walked around town to see if we liked anything and this restaurant came into view! We were very happy that we found something. Thank for being open on Wednesdays. The other restaurants in town really did not appeal to... More

My husband and I were very disappointed with this Restaurant; from the outset we were treated in a manner I would have never expected from a restaurant of this caliber. We were shoved in the corner away from the majority of the other patrons for no apparent reason. We were looking forward to enjoying a wonderful night out as the... More

Visit with 4, 2 adults and 2 children 12 and 16. A la carte. The first dishes grilled prawns and cheese crocettes tasted great but we had to wait 1 hour before serving. I think because it was nice weather and the restaurant inside and outsite where full. The single chef was bussy in hos small kitchen. The same for... More

The restaurant has a real nice theather, it was very romantic, and the service in the restaurant is really good! Price quality relation is good as well. Though as I asked for a Duck breast, red inside, I got a duck breast overcoocked. That's the reason I can not give more than 3 stars.. The food could be better, as... More

We have had a absolutely, and indisputable good experience in this restaurant. Dishes are well presented and flavours are good. Really worth while stopping by. Price quality wise: also here nothing to add. good food for your money and excellent service. Thanks for the good evening!

Very nice place in the center of the village. Good food, presentation and perfect service. Menu is not too long but sometimes it is even better.

Very nice location, atmosphere, service and design of the place! Food was just perfect! The food was very tasty, fresh and biological. The owner was involved in the process. Everything was done accurately. This is the place to come back!

After a wonderful day walking, we passed this charming little restaurant. The outside terrace nestled behind ancient flint walls looked irresistible. However, it immediately looked perhaps out of budget. A glance at the menu showed that actually the prices were very reasonable and perhaps the food quality would not be as good as the setting. WE WERE WRONG! :) We... More

Situated in the heart of Durbuy, 100 metres of the central square where all the main stream restaurants are located. Entree lit by candles, inside left and right from the corridor small rooms with 6 tables. Upstairs also possible to eat. Interior with old-fashioned decoration in farm-style. Three course meals only, not a wide selection, but no need, cause anyone... More
