This is an extraordinary restaurant and you will not be disappointed by the food. The vegetable and spice garden is probably at the foundation of the success of this hotel. Every course was accompanied by pure and fresh vegetables like you have not eaten them before. Our surprise menu had 5 appetizers each one unique in taste and composition. Our... More

We were a party of three, with one vegetarian. We took the small discovery menu. One of us had assorted wines, the other was designated driver so no alcohol, and I had two beers. We were all very happy with the experience. At one point there was a mixup and I received the same starter dish. It was quickly corrected.... More

This is the second time I visit to Hertog Jan. My first visit was at the previous restaurant. The new restaurant is very nice atmosphere, nice interior. The food was really amazing. You will have new experience at Hertog Jan.

The location is stunning, as is the building where they are located. The restaurant area is almost empty, industrial and meagar furnished, no warm ambiance. Overlooking the herbgarden is nice, what's missing is an air conditioning that keeps the whole at a constant comfortable temperature. Reception and the service is correct, friendly and cool, we lacked the passion and customer... More

in a 3 star restaurant where you pay rather a lot, you expect a 3 star service.... keep on dreaming: the personnel has no idea what the ingredients of the food are, 2 times too late with the accompanying wine or was the food too early?, one little cake with the coffee was clearly overdone - this in a 3...

On the 5th March me and my boyfriend had lunch at this 3 star Michelin restaurant.

The complete experience was perfect, venue of great style, young motivated service, great wines, ... and of course the magical dishes of the newest 3 star chef of Belgium. We went for a lunch and did only have 2 hours, so we choose the short discovery with all in formula. Champagne, amuses, 2 starters, 1 main dish, 2 deserts, wine... More
