ONE WORD AMAZING.. Food exceptional. Service good. Pricey, but well worth it. Chicken in Tarragon Sauce so good as wad the chocolate mouse. .Our husbands really liked the beers. Kids loved it too. Very Christmasy restaurant and quite traditional looking. Beautiful location , easy walk from Sunparks..

Waited 20 mins before I could order my food. After 15 mins I was told my dish was sold out. I ordered a hamburger instead and waited more than 1 hour for my meal. 17 euros for a mediocre hamburger & dito fries. Broken washroom equipment. Would not recommend this tourist trap.

There is a good reason why this restaurant gets good ratings. The combination of top quality food, large choice of beers and wine, excellent service and beautiful interior make this place an absolute winner. Staff were genuinely concerned to make our meal as enjoyable as possible. Shame the WiFi was not strong enough because of the thick stone walls, but... More

Had a crepe and a gaufre with a few drinks, they were pretty tasty. They won't win any awards, presentation is sorely lacking, but good enough for a quick bite!

We had drinks only, so cannot comment on the food. Great location in the center of Vielsalm ... "castle" vibe inside, but the real draw is the outside terrace and beautiful view in a region where there are not too many restaurants with something similar (despite the beautiful countryside). We had coffee/tea, friendly and good service, so all good.

Great location, nice appearance, good food. That was our experience with this restaurant in short. I would reccommend it, only problem might be that they speak mainly french, but this is no big deal.

Stopped for lunch en route and was so happy we stumbled upon this great place. Excellent menu choices with local fair and children's meals. We chose to eat on the huge terrace, but wished we had opted for an inside table as there is so much to look at. They even have a little kids area inside. Service is not... More

Dinner with the family but the service was poor and the quality of the food terrible and way overpriced. The portions were too small.
