Topnotch cuisine and high standard service. The ideal place for that special occasion. Price is aligned with the quality. Cannot recommend more.

It was again a great experience. We will keep on with our tradition to come at least once a year. We always feel very welcome. The food is prepared really well, the presentation of the plates is what one can expect from top restaurants and the taste is divine.

Unfortunately, circumstances have prevented us from visiting the Arenberg for nearly 2 years. So, we were delighted to find everything we always loved, still in place – imaginative innovative and delicious menus and dishes, imaginative, innovative and appropriate wines and most of all, excellent service. In fact, in terms of quality and value, it wasn't the same, it was better.

This restaurant was carefully selected by our Belgian business partners, who I should mention have very high culinary standards, for a recent company lunch. The menu was explained to us in great detail by a very competent lady who I think may have been the manager. I could have eaten any of the dishes so making a selection was quite... More

I had heard many good things about this place so decided to try it out with friends. It is located on the outskirts of the city, very accessible and ample parking space. From beginning to end the experience was immaculate. Very inventive cuisine, every dish is a treat to the palate and the eye. We opted for the 5-course menu... More

Away from the noisy city center you will find this great restaurant. It is located in a stylish house. Private parking just next door. You will find yourself in a nice decorated environment. The cuisine is just delicious! You can choose a menu with 4, 5 or 6 courses. And I can tell you, you will not leave this restaurant... More
