Fantastic -- worthy of another Michelin Star

We ate here to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food was fabulous, the service truly outstanding, the sommelier's choices were excellent. Best pigeon dish we have ever tasted. This was one of the top two meals I have ever had (and that includes two and three starred Michelin restaurants). (The... read more

The last time we ate at La Source (last summer) we had to drive back to Brussels, so we had no chance to take much wine with the dinner. This time we stayed over in La Butte, so that we could really enjoy the full experience. And from first course to last, our meal was a complete and utter 'feast'... More

Situated in the La Butte aux Bois hotel, this starred restaurant offers wonderful food. Staff is very friendly and helpful, yet relaxed. The sommelier knows his business and is a great help choosing wines and others. We went for the Menu Gourmand. All dishes came nicely presented and were cooked to perfection. 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

A bit hidden in a perfect environment, you will " discover " La butte aux bois. The wellnes feeling is actually all over, although we only went there for dining in the La Source restaurant. 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
