Mindblowing

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

We had just decided our hotel dining room was not acceptable to us, made a phone call and within 15 minutes we were enjoying this wonderful restaurant. The menu was interesting with many choices. 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

What a truly excellent meal. This 5-course experience was served up in the delightful gardens of the Hostellerie La Butte aux Bois. The meal is served every Sunday from 12.00 - 16.30 and its popularity makes advanced booking a necessity. Following a special greeting from the kitchen in the form of an " Amuse - bouche " of the house... More

I have been there now 2 times and planning to go back. Its not cheap but I did not feel bad when paying. We noticed around (not just us) very pleasant and personal service. We took both times fixed menu with wine matching and it was worth of it. We visited over 20 Michelin Star restaurants. We got the best... More

I had chosen the restaurant La Source for my birthday dinner, and we had booked a room in the hotel, so that we could enjoy the evening without having to worry about a long drive home (actually an arrangement which included the 5-course gourmet meal). From start to finish the evening was magical. We started off with a glass of... More
