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

We have been here before and do really like it, however this Christmas we found the menu lacking in originality and the service not up to the price. Lovely location and lovely rooms, we luckily arrived a bit early so had a nice window table. (be careful, the tables are extremely close together, so in addition to hearing the entire... More

Le Fou du Roy, located in the heart of the old town Durbuy serves good food for reasonable prices. The dishes are a fusion between good french cuisine and traditional belgian cuisine. You can choose either an entree and main dish, or main dish and dessert (cost around € 30). We had for the entree noix St. Jaques in a... More

Le Fou du Roy seems to have a stellar reputation with the locals, and it lived up to our high expectations. We sat on the very pretty terrace and enjoyed a long lunch of scallop appetizers followed by steak frites. Just order espressos instead of dessert if you're feeling full, because they come with delicious little treats. My only warning... More
