Our first experience of food in Belgium,and it didn't disappoint. Staff attentive and friendly and food (slow braised pig cheeks) excellent. The amuse bouche ( a small tasse of cauliflower soup) was both warming and tasty.

During a city trip weekend we had dinner at In den Wittenkop. A very small restaurant. The food was excellent as well was the wine. I had the rabbit and this was lovely cooked with a sauce with delicious flavour. Everything home made.
