A memorable event, a lifetime experience!

We went there on a beautiful and sunny day for lunch. Gin and tonic on the terrace, overlooking the environment from the hilltop at the backside of the restaurant. Calm and joy. Lots of amazing little appetizers, all 'Wow'! Follow the proposed menu, it is well thought off, and in perfect harmony... read more

We had lunch in this renowned restaurant last April and we were very much looking forward to it. In fact, expectations were so high that living up to them was almost impossible. We were greeted by the chef's wife in a professional but very friendly manner. Very important, as it made us feel comfortable and at ease right from the... More

Our third time here, the first being in 2008. I still think it's the best (and most expensive) restaurant where I have eaten, and to know how to interprete this you should know I have eaten in a dozen places of the top 50 pellegrino, including El Celler. The combinations this chef makes, are unbeatable, the execution (

We expected the best and we got it. Delicious menu, perfect wines and a high class service. Of course the price is accordingly. We loved it and we definitely come back .

We had the 5 course menu......But it turned out to be a total of 12 plates and each dish - or should I call them "masterpiece" - was better than the previous one! The attention to detail and service was spot on......3 Star Michelin : Well Deserved!

The connoisseurs ammongst us know that a visit to a Michelin star restaurant is not just about going out for a meal. It is a small and intimate party for two or more. A party that starts at the very moment of reservation and goes on until after the digestivo's and while heading back for home or hotel you reminiss... More

Hof Van Cleve is supposedly the best restaurant in Belgium and if it isn't the best then it is probably the most expensive one... We booked lunch on a Saturday with a small group of friends. Booking was easy and can be done maximum 3 months in advance. A few weeks before the visit we had to select the menu.... More

I went with my husband and a friend for dinner during 5he week. The reservation was made weeks in advance. The restaurant is in an old farm building which gives a really original and cozy feeling. But at the same time you have the most prepared staff you can imagine. The full dinner with 6 courses, if i recall correctly,... More

We expected the best and we got it. It really deserves the three stars they have. Delicious menu, perfect wines and a high class service. We loved it and we definetly come back. Of course, like for every pleasure in life, the price was accordingly.

What to say... This restaurant and it's staff are near to perfect. Ever dish is like a piece of art and tastes divine. Being vegetarians ourselves we had the 7 course vegetarian option. This was the best meal I ever had, full stop ! Expensive, but worth every cent, go there you won,t regret.
