I had a great lunch there. Royal service. Amazing food. Great wine pairing. Thank you for the vegetarian alternative. Will return.

Food was very good, so where the accompanying wines and service. But this is also to be expected at a 2-star (Michelin) restaurant. As I often frequent 1-star restaurants, my hopes were high for this 2-star restaurant, but I can't see the huge difference except that the price is double. So in this respect, I was slightly disappointed.

Definitely worth visiting. The food was amazing. Surprising dishes that gave an explosion of flavors. Staff was also wonderful, very friendly and excellent on consulting wines that fit to the dishes.

perfect seating and outstanding service either in efficiency as in kindness. The menus are the top of the top. Each dish is a painting and the tastes are heavenly. Small portions with exquisite tastes and colours but, after the 5 of 6 course menu nobody leaves hungry. The variation in the menu and the wines are superb. A must for... More

This was simply the best meal I have ever had! It was our valentine's dinner, the service was great, friendly and relaxed. Everything looked very organised and played down. We chose the 5 course menu and it was pretty enough since the amuse bouche are to count and were one of the best experience ever - well presented, orient flavoured... More

We ate here to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food was fabulous, the service truly outstanding, the sommelier's choices were excellent. Best pigeon dish we have ever tasted. This was one of the top two meals I have ever had (and that includes two and three starred Michelin restaurants). (The other was at Le Manoir de Quat' Saisons in the... More

The last time we ate at La Source (last summer) we had to drive back to Brussels, so we had no chance to take much wine with the dinner. This time we stayed over in La Butte, so that we could really enjoy the full experience. And from first course to last, our meal was a complete and utter 'feast'... More

Situated in the La Butte aux Bois hotel, this starred restaurant offers wonderful food. Staff is very friendly and helpful, yet relaxed. The sommelier knows his business and is a great help choosing wines and others. We went for the Menu Gourmand. All dishes came nicely presented and were cooked to perfection. One of the best in the region!

The restaurant is exquisite. Very nice service, friendly people and art works on your plate. Especially the dessert was just and art piece that tasted very good. As for the hotel, a bit too old with painful hard beds at price level that is not in line with location and quality. So eat there get a taxi and stay at... More

We have been several times to this fantastic restaurant and it is definitely our favorite in Belgium. The location is just fabulous as you are surrounded by nature, it is beautiful. Service is perfect, the experience starts at the front door of this relais et chateaux where you are warmly welcomed and guided to the restaurant. The food is exquisite... More
