not your typical French / Flemish bistro Estaminet in French, food well served in an old fashioned way, tastes are authentic, simple, yet in some dishes, lost tastes of the past can be found.. it is worth visiting, and the beer selection is also very good. Different and priced accordingly, not over priced.

This is a really characterful restaurant, specialising in local Flanders cuisine. It's easy to find; just head towards the windmill out of the town square. Being near the top of the hill gives you a good view over the small town. The character hits you as soon as you come in, with the smoke of the log-burning fire, and every... More

This is a lovely place high on Mont Cassel in which to spend a couple of hours on the patio with it's excellent views. There are a number of different local beers in the bottle to try. They also have a small shop with a good selection.

Having read many recommendations for this restaurant, I searched it out when in Cassel. It is located at the top of Mont Cassel near the windmill; if the tourist office is closed when you are there, as it was when I visited, that should be enough information to help you find it. Being at the top of the hill, the... More

Brilliant view over landscape from highpoint in town. Wooden board games to play, ceiling hung with pots and pans etc, Great snack lunch - delicious individual quiches, omelette and good local beer. Well worth a visit for food and atmosphere!

To visit the gardens, you'll have to climb Mont Cassel first, where Estaminet Kasteelhof is situated. We came here not for a lunch or dinner, but to get the tickets for the garden - and were pleasantly surprised by the delicatessenshop that sold all kinds of regional specialties, such as rillettes and "potjesvlees".....

Hidden up by the mill on the hill. Very welcoming patron speaks English. Pretty full on a Saturday evening but still had space both inside and out. We chose to sit on the terrace on a warm summer evening -bliss. Home made fruit juices, Lemonade flavoured soft drinks, Ciders and a multitude of beers provide more than enough choice on... More

Brilliantly authentic Flemish bar/cafe/corner shop (estaminet in French) which is stuffed with things to admire. Difficult to find as it masquerades as an anonymous building on the winding hill road leading to the Foch monument. Behind the front door on the right is a small shop with local jams, beers, trinkets and all sorts for unusual Xmas gifts (that's what... More

This was the only time we didn't book (forgot international code for France and we were only 40 mins away in Belgium so decided just to go for it) and we were lucky it was Friday lunchtime because we got a table. A bit more limited in the menu than we have had on previous trips but always before we... More
