Smaaksalon is a restaurant in an historic building. A great atmosphere of classic beauty gives an extra touch visiting this restaurant. Service is very friendly. We had lunch and got a tasty meal with fresh ingredients. Wines were OK. Love to go back.

So yes, to get it out of the way, the service is slow. Very slow, friendly but don't expect to get in and out within 2 hours. But spending two hours here isn't a bad way to spend your time. The beef stew I had...More

This restaurant is located in a magnificent 19th century mansion. You can visit for breakfast, tea, lunch and dinner. It closes at 6.00 p.m., so as far as dinner is concerned it is more something for "early bird specials". The food is of average quality...More

This is worth a visit for the beautiful architecture. I would highly recommend calling in for coffee and just to take in the atmosphere. Lunch was rather expensive for average food. We ate quiche; very small portions and not very well seasoned.

Savour our local flavour! We warmly welcome you to come and taste the flavours of Hasselt in the Smaaksalon (the 'Flavour Lounge'). The Smaaksalon is housed in the unique interior of Huis de Corswarem. Hasselt's high standard of flavours is rooted in rich traditions and craftsmanship that are faithfully cherished on the one hand and, on the other, reshaped into original current-day creations. The Smaaksalon is where the people of Hasselt and the tourist alike can feel at home and experience the Limburg gastronomy in general and the Hasselt products in particular. You can visit the brasserie as from 11am to enjoy a drink or a small snack. Our menu offers delicious Hasselt morsels, Hasselt biscuits or an assortment of Hasselt sweets. The favourite dishes of known Hasselt personalities are also everyday fare in our brasserie. Working together with Hasselt and Limburg producers is primordial for us. That is why we serve delicious cups of Maes coffee or a refreshing glass of Aldeneyck pinot blanc. It is possible to order first-class wines by the glass in the restaurant. Working with suppliers such as Puur Limburg, among others, we are convinced that we can share the best Limburg products with you. The Smaaksalon is open to the public during the day but even after closing hours, groups can rely on us for dinner-meetings, formal table dinners or receptions with regional snacks and drinks. Quotes can always be requested, without commitment. Definitely keep an eye on our agenda. Every saturday, the Smaaksalon restaurant is exceptionally also open in the evening. Also enjoy our monthly Sunday brunches in a unique environment. Enjoy and convince yourself of the 'The flavours of Limburg". Welcome to the Smaaksalon.
