One of the best in the region!

The restaurant is exquisite. Very nice service, friendly people and art works on your plate. Especially the dessert was just and art piece that tasted very good. As for the hotel, a bit too old with painful hard beds at price level that is not in line with location and quality. So eat there get a taxi and stay at... More

We have been several times to this fantastic restaurant and it is definitely our favorite in Belgium. The location is just fabulous as you are surrounded by nature, it is beautiful. Service is perfect, the experience starts at the front door of this relais et chateaux where you are warmly welcomed and guided to the restaurant. The food is exquisite... More

This was the perfect restaurant experience. Impeccable service, great wines and beautiful dishes. Well worth the price in my opinion. Obviously the ideal setting for very special occasions.

Last night we visited La Source, driving nearly 100 kms to do so - but it was so, so worth it!! My wife and I had an absolutely fantastic meal, from start to finish - beautifully crafted, very varied, and with some pretty amazing taste-bomb sensations throughout! I'm not sure they all worked perfectly in combination sometimes, BUT the summer... More

Splendid cuisine, excellent sommelier and table services. We chose the 7 course menu and consider it as absolute top class. The quality of the food,... More

We made our decisions and 2 lots of amuses bouches were brought to our table first. Although the time between courses got longer and longer, the... More
