The best

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.

We were five couples at this dinner in the countryside west of Ghent, Belgium. Two physicians organized the dinner for fellow foreign physicians and their wives. Let me be clear. My wife and I have eaten in at least one third of all the three star restaurants in France and many of the two and one star ones as well.... More

Hof van Cleve deserves all three of its Michelen stars, and maybe a half star more. I've eaten here three times and each has been simply one of the very best meals I have had in my life. Since I cannot eat fish or shellfish, I've eaten their 7 and 10 course meals (add another 5-6 amuse-bouche dishes to the... More

I am Belgian but left 18 years ago. It has long been a dream to eat at a 3* Michelin and a Belgian one preferably. This year my husband and I decided to just book and go and invite my mum along. We had booked for lunch and chose the 5 course menu for 195€. We didn't drink wine so... More
