So glad I finally got to go here. The ambiance is wonderful; cozy decor that is totally unpretentious. Service was friendly and perfectly paced. The food was delicious. The hard part was choosing a dish but I opted for the duck and it was delicious. Will definitely be returning.

The restaurant is nice and cozy. Food is fresh and well cooked. However, they are extremely slow; we arrived at 7pm and at 9.15pm we were still waiting for the main course. We had ordered the dinner menu as it seemed a good opportunity to try the Belgium cuisine, but if I had known the long waiting time, I would... More

The ambience is lovely, we were there for a large 12+ group. The food was very tasty and delivered hot and fresh. I did feel a little sorry for the couples and groups of four as the acoustics lend for a louder atmosphere. Service was very friendly and professional and in both French and English. Parking lot is very dark... More

Located along the N6 between Soignies and Mons, la Gourmandine offers generous plates reflecting local Belgian flavours in a farmous early 20th century decoration room. Parking at the back of the restaurant or along the N6. Services is fair. Plates are served generously, think about it and know yourself at order intake.

Excellent food and warm, friendly staff. The garnished baked potatoes are great, (escargots for me), although unusual for an appetizer. People not familiar with Belgium may find La Gourmandine pricey, but it isn't by comparison to other local places. Lunch specials are one of the best buys around.

Tried this on a whim. Proprietor a charming lady who speaks no English, but we managed to communicate. Scant attendance on a Wednesday night, did not require reservations. Best dish was scallops risotto (they call that Coquille St. Jacques, if you don't speak French). House red wine was delicious, white wine so-so.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here last night. Full house on a Saturday evening - definitely reserve a table. Great, helpful service - I suspect English-speaking though we did not need that. The food was delicious - creative presentation, perfectly cooked. We took advantage of the season to order game, pheasant (faisan) and venison (biche), followed by the... More
