We started with an aperitif in the loungebar before being seated at our table. G&T was nicely flavoured as it should be. All courses were prepared excellently and wines were great. Prices are in line with a Michelinstar restaurant, however they have not received this award. For me the quality was in line with the prices. Nice evening!

i was looking for a restaurant which would make good use of Belgian produce, but not necessarily in the "classic" way. Volta was the perfect answer! We ordered the 6 course dinner ( not including the langoustines) and were not disappointed.dishes were very aesthetic, flavors were good. Service was good, not intrusive.Wine list was very decent too.A nice way to... More

We had high expectations of this restaurant but were rather disappointed. Stage was set with the drinks. We had to wait 15 minutes before we could order. Once done we got the amuses before we got our drinks (another 15 min later) The amuses set the tone for the cuisine: the base ingredients were very tasteful but were overwhelmed by... More

The restaurant has a very thought through setting with delicate presentation and an aesthetic eye. The room, though industrial in origin, gives a nice and cosy atmosphere. The waiters and staff are very correct, helpful and well educated but lack the spontaneity to make you forget where you are. (American style but european execution). An amazing plus was that, when...

We had a great meal at Volta. We took the standard many (7 courses or so) and we enjoyed every single one of them. What impressed us the most is the creativity in each of the dishes. Also all very well presented. The service is casual : in "Gents" and with a spontaneous, direct type of style. We enjoyed it,... More

We organized a 35 person fixed dinner at Volta. Everything was wonderful. But in particular, the created a large number of unique dishes for our 6 vegans that were truly delicious. Very well executed!

Our conference dinner was held upstairs in the private room and was delicious. The food was presented "family style" and was fun to share. Each course was tasty, beautifully presented and included a number of local specialties. It was an exciting evening of fine dining.

A great night out with my darling. Started out with some nice cocktails at the cozy bar of this old - electricity converter station. Very up and hip place! No stress and staff guiding you to the table 'when it's time' (they keep a tight schedule) without pushing you and after having had the time to consult the menu. We... More

I went saturday for lunch, the atmosphere was relaxed. At the bar, I found the wine was excellent, the appetisers were of a good quality. The waiters should speak slower and articulate better when they explain though. at the restaurant, same remark about the waiters. The food was very nicely presented - the taste buds were surprised. The dessert was... More

I will start by saying that the food was really good. Unfortunately the service was overall so bad that this turned into a 'never again' experience. I could get in details but at least 10 things went wrong with the service that one should expect from such a restaurant (slow, clumsy, unorganised, some arrogance, etc...). The staff in the kitchen... More
