We have eaten here quite a few times and have considered it to be the best restuarant that we have visited in Belgium by quite a large margin. Food was very good as usual, but the service was a little less attentive than normal - our friends asked three times for bread before any was delivered, it was busy but... More

This was the 4th time I have eaten at this restaurant and I've always been delighted. We were warmly welcomed by the owner's wife who explained the menus in detail - in English. There's an option of dining in the veranda or the main room. Tables are well spaced to offer a degree of privacy. We were offered 2 appetizers... More

Yes, this is a Michelin star restaurant, and the food will not disappoint you, on the contrary, every time, every dish, is like a meal made in heaven. But what attracts me most in Arenberg, is the atmosphere. The friendliness, the service, it all keeps up with the high standard of a Michelin star restaurant, without however giving me the... More

Confirmed michelin star cuisine, coquilles w/ rissotto was delicious, wines included in menu were very good, this saturday lunch formula is of a very good price/quality ratio. A pity we were charged at full price for our 10 year old daughter, although she did not have complete menu (incl. paying for drinking still table water)

We have been using this restaurant for about 10 years. We have eaten in many 1, 2 and 3 star Michelin restaurants. This is undoubtedly the best. The menu is always innovative and the food is of outstanding quality and presentation. The carefully chosen eclectic mix of wines is always a pleasure and surprise. Best of all, the service is...

If you love French Belgian cuisine, don't hesitate. In a rather classic interior, you'll discover a blend of tastes accompanied by fine wines.

I have been to Arenberg about 6 or 7 times now and the experience has never disappointed. Food, service and overall atmosphere at a high level. When comparing to a number of michelin star restaurants in Belgium, this one deserve theirs highly because of their consistency throughout the years. Keep up the good work. One small point of improvement: the... More
