“Great wines, exquisit food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We had the fantastic menu on a Saturday evening. A good atmosphere and a fantastic service, added to that a delicious menu and a fine selection of exquisit wines.

The menu was well balanced, but sometimes the chef added some items which didn't necessarily added someting to the quality. I would suggest focusing on the essential.

Lst but not least; the dinner comes at a price. Be reassured, the quality is there, but you need to consider whether you want to spend 125€ for a menu.

It's up to you, but I don't regret...

“Marvellous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Dinner on a weekday right after New Year ... the place was nearly packed and for all the good reasons. Very warmly welcomed, good house champagne and delicate appetizers. There is no 'a la carte' so we took the 4-course menu - very attractively priced - and the choices we made implied fish all the way (except desert :-)). Fresh products, prepared to perfection and elaborated just enough to bring out the natural taste.
Open kitchen, but the team works silently. Interesting wines at very interesting prices.
I believe this one surely has Michelin-star potential !

“Exquisite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is a top place on every level. Magnificent food, fine wines, excellent service in a relaxed atmosphere.
Maybe not really cheap but you get so much value for money that's t's certainly worth it. It's a great "total experience" . Thank you De Kwizien !

“14 on GM”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I went there on a Sunday evening with one of my best friends and we were warmly welcomed with a smile. The place was empty though and I don't understand why: Original appetizers with a fair selected champagne, fine grilled turbot, exquisite sweetbread, the filet of hare could have been more focussed on (was kind of the most "basic" of all dishes). Pairing wines matched beautifully but the whites could have been served more chilled and the red more ambient.

All in all a good experience, thanks also to the home made bread (with jalapenos or tomato or...)
