Today my family had the most amazing lunch. Every dish was spectacular and the wine pairing was outstanding. Do not hesitate to try this gem. Service was spectacular, food and wine exemplary and my 12 year old with serious food allergies was blown away by...risotto, roast duck and chocolate mousse that would make an angel cry. We will be back very soon and do not hesitate to make it a point to enjoy L’art des Mets when visiting the gorgeous and friendly city of Mons!!!More

We happened to stop in Mons for lunch travelling to Luxembourg from the UK. We had the set lunch menu which was fantastic from start to finish. We had a very tasty soup and pate to start followed by a fig, Parma ham and melon...salad. Mains was Guinea fowl and seasonal vegetables with the most amazing jus! Dessert was a a trio of creme brûlée, lemon meringue and chocolate brownie. Service was excellent . Decor was tasteful and ambience fantastic. We would like to visit again maybe for dinner next time.More

We had enjoyed an earlier visit very much to this restaurant in the centre of Mons a few years ago so we decided to return with a group of 8. The restaurant recently got a new start under a new chef a few months ago...so we were curious to see I the earlier quality could be maintained. The maître was the same as then and recognised me and even remembered the hotel we had been staying in more than 2 years ago! The service was impeccable, the food excellent. No experiments on your plate but exquisitely prepared and served dishes with local and seasonal elements. When the chef came to our table at the end of the meal we wholeheartedly complemented him and his team and said we’ll be back next time in Mons. We had a wonderful evening and recommend this place to anyone loving good food and an honest and hard-working team.More

Intimate atmosphere for this restaurant located in one of the street overlooking the main square. Good food in general but a few disappointments compared to certain flavors and associations. Maybe need a second chance because it is really not expensive

After being closed for a couple of months was excited to see that this place had reopened. Always thought it a vastly underrated restaurant and had enjoyed every meal there, so for my last night in Belgium seemed an obvious choice. Looks exactly the same...inside, and the menu is similar, but it has changed hands and is not the same as before. That's not to say it's not worth a visit, just a different approach. Before the emphasis was on textures, tastes and presentation, and it was very much at the fine dining end of the scale - always left knowing I couldn't have cooked half of the things on the plate or presented them as stunningly. Now it is aiming at higher end of the market but doesn't yet reach the fine dining level. I went for the set menu with matched wines, which was reasonable at €50 I thought - amuse-bouches with aperitif, starter with a Riesling, main with a nice south west French white and dessert with a small sparkling wine. The amuse-bouches were tasty enough - lentils, vichyssoise and a tomato dish. For the starter I had the pressed beef tail and foie gras - a layered terrine of the two which was maybe a touch on the dense side. It was well presented and came with a spicy tomato crostini, several of which would make a nice starter in their own. Main was zander with squid ink couscous and petits legumes. The zander was in three unequal sized pieces, but cooked for the same time, with the result that one was perfectly cooked and the other two just a tad overcooked. I'm not sure squid ink adds anything except colour so why bother. The couscous would have complemented the fish better had it been served with lemon zest or preserved lemon - something to give the whole dish a little sharpness and lift it. Think a similar sauce would have done so too - a thin hollandaise or lemon butter sauce perhaps. The mix of veg was OK but nothing to get excited about - less might be more here. Dessert was the tarte du jour- red fruits and apple with a grated coconut crumble topping, with a red berry sorbet, and I thought it was very nice. The new team are keen to do well and I enjoyed chatting to them about the dishes and where I thought things might be improved - they appreciated the feedback too. The service was attentive and they knew the wines and food well. Overall I would say it's worth a visit - in retrospect I might have made different choices (could have had lobster ravioli followed by veal entrecôte and fries instead) but no complaints at all, just some observations and suggestions in the spirt of constructive criticism. It's a comfortable 3/5 but not yet enough to merit a 4. Give them a chance and they will only get better.More
