We did not actually come here to eat but we came to stay in the bed & breakfast. The location is great, the room was clean and neat. Dogs are welcome and there is no extra charge. There should be more places with a policy like that, thanks! However, there were some "original" elements, like the toliet in the room... More

Nice and cozy restaurant in the woods. The food was better before (2years ago). This time the scampis were way too salty and the entrecôte of bad quality, instead the côté à l'os was good. Furthermore, the waiter never came back with the change. A pity for such a beautiful place. We are not sure that we will give it... More

Your meat is beeing roasted above the fireplace while you enjoy your wine and starters. Very rustic Belgian atmosphere at the source of Geronstere.

We loved the foie gras and the gigot d'agneau. Child menu was also very good. The restaurant is situated on a hill in the middle of the woods, so the scenery is beautiful.

While ordering we inquired where the Entrecote was from, "Ireland" said the waiter. After complaining that it was overcooked dry and tasteless, we were told that it was the best Argentinian beef! When the bill arrived, the steak was itemised as "Brazilian" entrecote. To cap it all, when we complained we were informed that the steak was Blanc-bleu from Belgium.... More

We have been eating here for 15 years. Sometimes the service is slow but I'm not usually in a hurry, I have had overcooked food but a quick word with the chef puts that right. The atmosphere, location and Scampi du chef make up for it all!

Waiters never came to our table, we had to wave after 15 min. waiting to draw their attention to us. A waitress just dropped a tray with the drinks on our table and walked away. When we started to speak English to her she looked as us as we were kidding her. Anyway we managed to order. Food is ok,... More

We visited this restaurant with about 10 friends to celebrate our anniversary. The location is beautiful with one of the sources of Spa in the garden which would be a lovely place to spend the afternoon. The staff including the owner Bruno could not have made us more welcome. Nothing was hurried, the choice and the quality of the food... More

Was recommended this palce forthe steak and location. Location is great. It's is a forested area which is really beautiful. Food is average, service is SLOW, as in a tortoise moves faster. Very diappointing for Beligium where the food is generally good.
