We fined here one night while we were staying at their hotel. We chose the 35 euro set menu for 3 courses and could not find fault with none of the food. Service was good although a bit curt but we put that down to us not speaking much French

The 'service' is just wonderfull. Try to take the aperitif or digestif in the salons (next to the bar is a bit noisy). The menu's are great, try the cheese cart at least once, such fine choices of affinated cheeses, hard to find. Interesting wine cellar (go and have a look!) where the cellar rests are very interesting! The maître... More

Excellent restaurant, great food (countryside French/European), fast service (but they were a bit too stressed?). Drinks might be a bit expensive but we'll come back for the food!

We ordered the Malle Poste menu and sat back and had a delicious food journey over the next two hours. Yes, it is expensive, but yes, it is totally worth it. Each course is carefully thought out and explained to you as it is presented. It is fresh and creative and fun to try things that you may or may... More

We were on the way back from a hike in the Ardennes and wanted to have some nice food. We were clearly underdressed for this kind of place which is very elegant. We enjoyed the 3 course 35 euros menu plus an amuse-bouche was offered. Service is not great and be careful when ordering water. A bottle of their tap... More

The restaurant is nicely decorated by the landlady who also arranges beautiful flowers at the tables. Which ads to a festive atmosphere. We were two couples and opted for the menu (50 euro, two starters including lobster, main course consisting of pigeon, desert). The food was prepared to perfection and the service very helpful. All up to the standard of... More

We ordered a menu of 35€. We've got an exquisit tartare de dorade as starter, a rouget and mourceau de porc as main and a mousse de mangue as dessert. The dishes where all very tasty and of superbe quality compared to the price. The restaurant is also part of a hotel. Both hotel and outside guests meet in one... More

What more to say about this extraordinary place serving delicious and fine food, wines and spirits. We came here for a romantic dinner (in winter) and enjoyed a great seating next to the fireplace ... Top service, top food ... you enjoy your apéro and coffee/digestif in "le salon" in this most beautiful, romantic decorated restaurant. An adress to remember... More

My wife and I had the 3-course set menu, while the kids (8 and 10 years) split an adult size steak frite order. Everyone was initially served an amuse bouche consisting of several delicious little bites. The first course in the set menu was a wonderful gazpacho soup with bits of some kind of fish in it. This was followed... More

The setting of the restaurant is very nice on the grounds of the hotel La Malle Poste. Since, we were staying at the hotel we thought it would be nice to eat there. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. For starters, we had gazpacho which was ok but it strangely had a piece of hot fried fish on top which simply did... More
