Me and my family had a lovely dinner at this quirky restaurant. Contes de Salme looks great (in a medieval way), serves very nice food, and has a friendly staff. Prices are fair.

We visited this restaurant with a very large group of persons. Actually, we visited it twice. So we went back after the first experience. Very friendly servants. Even when the restaurant was almost full and we entered with a party of 17! They did their very best to suit us and find a spot for us to sit. The food... More

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.

Thank ChrBrd
