For many years I have with various companies guest in numerus clausus. Always eaten really delicious, exquisite fine wines, correct and jovial service, all in a cozy setting. Also for a cozy dinnet for two this is a top address!

I guess, at least for this restaurant in Lier. For a very affordable price (you will pay the same in a brasserie) you get star-cuisine, but you don't feel like being in a stiff star restaurant (I know, there are lots of other start restaurants). The six of us took the market menu, and we all were very pleased with... More

Located in the heart of Lier, you have to know the adress or you'll just pass the entrance. Don't show up without a reservation though. We had the Four Course Menu, with selected wines. Service was very good, the St Jacob's fruit was the best I ever had.

best price/quality for a great French cuisine, try the fois gras or king crab for a starter! The "kalfszwerezikken" are fantastic, also the fish and the deserts are heavenly, a must!! but book well in advance!!
