We had dinner in this lovely restaurant. Service is very friendly, polite and professional. Food was great, even sensational. Fresh ingredients, a magnificent presentation and combination of tasts. Wines were sublime. Dessert was home made dame blance, the best I ever had. Love to go back.

Dining at a Michelin rated restaurant is not something most of us do on regular bases. But it is worth the experience. De Slagmolen is a small restaurant with a semi open Kitchen where you can see the master of cooking wonders himself at work. When circumstances allow dining in the garden is highly recommended. Book your table if you... More

The degustation menu had 6 amuses, 2 meat dishes, 2 fish dishes, 1.5 desserts and to top it all off a plethora of sweet finger food . We combined all this with some great Belgian wines ...

Had drinks and amuse bouche in the garden and then the famous Slagmolen menu inside. Correct portions nicely presented, finished off with their renown Dame Blanche dessert ...WOOOW. Has to be experienced once in your life.

If you want to eat good classical food in a nice atmosphere and friendly service you really should visit this restaurant. Go for the 'classics' and you won't regret it!

Although some place might get more publicity, this certainly is the best place to eat in Belgium. You get real plates here (not the ratrace of many little things, no matter how nice or special they are, you never have the feeling that you have eaten) of the highest quality and most refined taste.

This realy is a good restaurant but I see no reason why it should have one michelin stars. It has two. These stars are raising expectations that just aren't met. The food deserves better wines, two stars and the same cheap Chilean Chardonnay from Santa Ines with two courses is not okay for me. Not for this price. Service is... More

My wife and I enjoyed yesterday an extensive lunch at Slagmolen. We had the 'degustatiemenu', tasting menu with complementary wines. Menu is quite classical, what we anticipated. After the appetizer there were 3 seafood courses (lobster, ray-fin, John Dory) and then angus filet. They served the same wine with two of the fish courses and we felt the wine combined... More

This one star restaurant is situated in a green area, One hidden gem of old mill , howerer the interoir is boring. No colors nothing good on the walls. The food is very classic and not surprising but it is very good. The staff is very good and friendly. The wine list is great.

Although the food and setting is super the experience is a bit disappointing. The menu has many dishes that challenge your taste. Bit disappointed to get a chicken dish! Was sitting outside which was nice and comfortable with heating system. Service and atmosphere is too stiff for my liking. Not sure I will be back
