We frequent Michel from time to time, it always provides a high quality meal and friendly service. The ambiance is relaxed and it is a lovely place to bring friends, family and customers.

We had a 5-course diner. 2 starters, a main dish and 2 desserts. Both starters were nicely presented and original in taste. Also the mail dish was ok. Both desserts seemed a bit copu paste, both chocolate mousses with fruit. The quality of the food is very good. A pity that only one glas of white wine and one glass... More

The service is not that friendly but very Profesional... We are in the Flanders side so not much more to expect. The food is amazing! The best restaurant from the various I have been. Do not know how expensive since both times did not pay but it must be really expensive. Wine selection really good. If you have the money... More

What do you expect from a restaurant that receives a coveted Michelin star ?Of course faultless food. Excellent service. And, is it asking too much, even value for money. Michel just scrapes by. Negatives first. The attractive terrace is somewhat spoiled by the noise from the nearby motorway. The service,from some of the staff,can be somewhat "heavy " . You... More

We tried this restaurant during Resto days to celebrate a family event. Some of our family members had never been to a Michelin star restaurant before and that was a great opportunity to get an introduction. The overall setting is nice, a bit plain but with a touch of sophistication. The food was good: fair size plates, interesting flavour combinations,... More

Quit location with terras in the summer. Enough space between the tables. Traditional food but very well prepared and all fres, with some new try outs during the appetizers. Professional and frendly service. Also nice wine chart(tablet) but ask the sommelier for the ones which are not on the list. For dessert try the home made vanila ice, or even... More

For years already a place of good value. Nice appetizers before the two 'entrées' and a lot of sweets with the coffees. All courses are nicely presented and the preparation is correct. But don't expect explosions of flavours or refined dishes. What you get is correct and fresh, but one could do with some more surprising combinations. The staff is... More

I went for lunch. The restaurant is in a very nice building and in a sunny day the patio has to be lovely, but when I went it was raining... Interiors are a bit tacky, with golden columns and appareils + chairs with optical fabric. Service is competent and very professional, they are so nice that they leave you a... More

We had a wonderful meal here with some friends who live near by. Frankly, we were a little apprehensive about going to Michel becasue we had read mixed reviews on Trip Advisor. But our meal was superb and the wines that were suggested went really well with our dinner. We would definitely go back the next time we are in... More
