Six of us went for lunch. Very pleasant and helpful hostess. Wide variety of food available to suit all pockets. Superb location, out of the way and none the worse for that. Unfortunately, the whole thing is moving at the end of May 2017, retaining the name and telephone number but different place where there will be seven guest bedrooms.... More

Once we entered the restaurant, we were warmly welcomed and began our food journey at Sparhof. Every dish was delightful and the plated presentation was on point. The atmosphere was warm and cozy with a touch of elegance. Our experience was wonderful and we are so glad that we were recommended to eat here. The food was fresh prepared, and... More

Wonderful rustic setting on the edge of a small forest, with open fire and a great collection of Belgian beers. Not the most vegetarian friendly menu (as perhaps the hunter's setting would also suggest) but friendly and accomodating, also to gluten allergies.

We knew immediately we walked in that we had found a real gem. A very warm welcome from friendly staff and a great selection of drinks, in particular the beer range. We sat by an open log fire and our meals were delicious, large portions, and well presented. It's certainly tucked away but no problem to find with satnav. We... More

This was a gamekeeper's cottage that was discerningly converted into a restaurant some years ago. The atmosphere is exceedingly pleasant, the staff friendly and helpful and the food is exquisit.

We stopped here on a bike ride after it was recommended by our B&B host. Thankfully there are signs, or it would be challenging to find. We came for beers and dessert, which did not disappoint! We had the molten chocolate cake and chocolate ice cream, and both were delicious! I only wish we ate a full meal here because... More

We dined at 't Sparhof based on a recommendation from our bed and breakfast. It was a fantastic recommendation. It is located in the countryside a few kilometers outside Watou. We biked there and it was an incredibly pleasant ride. There were many patrons eating at the restaurant who also arrived by bike. We sat on the terrace, which had... More

Having read their excellent reviews on trip advisor and read the menus on their website, we had booked a table several weeks before we visited. This “restaurant” is extemely difficult to find; we lost our way; we arrived for lunch 40 minutes later than our booking time. When we arrived, only two other tables were occupied. Be Warned: the menu... More

Very country styled restaurant captured a very nice atmosphere. The seasonal soup was excellent and other mains very good. Portion sizes on the large side especially the pork ribs and filet.
