We stopped here for a bite because there was no place open to grab a bite in the village close by where we were staying . The staff were busy and service in English was not very good . No English menus . My wife had a vegetable dish and I had the steak . Steak was over cooked .... More

Today, we went with the family to the tea room of this restaurant. Seeing the interior and how it was decorated, we had really high expectations. Unfortunately, the tearoom did not meet our expectations. We all took pancakes and hot drinks. Not only was all this quite pricy, the food was already cold, and so was the tea. Telling the... More

The food is good and honest. Nice choices on the menu card. The entourage is really lovely, we had a nice very private table. Although waiters do not have a overview on all the tables. The service is great. We had a gewat time!

I visited last night with my husband and two children. On arrival, we were enamoured by the fabulous rustic decor. There were brick arches (which would have been part of the castle cellars) under which there were tables for 4-6 people. We asked for one of these but were told they were all reserved. (By the time we left a... More

You really have to stop for a drink or lunch here, when visiting Vielsalm. This brasserie is an old 18th century castle, right in front of the church of Vielsalm and with a view on the lake. It has been completely refurbished in medieval style with a very special atmosphere. Eating or drinking there feels like you have stepped into... More

Was hoping to find a stop on the N89/N68, finally came across this place with a convenient place to park opposite. Eating al fresco looking out over the valley and lake. Good food and a good stop over... If they had had rooms we would have stayed there as well.

We had reservations for a party of 7 and were seated right away. The waiters were friendly and helpful even with our limited French. The food was very good for the value. We loved the old feel of the restaurant with exposed brick and beams. We would definitely return!

Nice menu and good selection of beer. I had the opportunity to try both lunch and after-work beer. The lunch was very good, with fast, attentive service. End-of-day service was, however, painfully slow.

My daughter and I were camping nearby and drove into Vielsalm for dinner. Strangely, several of the town's restaurants were not open on Mondays so available options were slim. Fortunately, we found Contes de Salme! My daughter is a vegetarian and is also allergic to gluten so it is often difficult to find suitable options on the menu. When we... More

My daughter and I were driving thru the Ardennes sight-seeing when we came upon this splendid restaurant located on the north side of Vielslam, a quaint little town. I think it's also a hotel as a drive-way leads to a circular courtyard. Upon entering the restaurant you will be impressed with the old style architecture. Huge exposed beams, bricked "caves"...
