“For such type of restaurant we were expecting much more”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Nicely welcome but immediately forgotten although there were not so many people

The environment is ok

Starter:
- the Foie Gras was average
- the carpaccio was frozen!!!

Main:
- my duck was average with still 2 lead bullets inside
- the dear of my girlfriend never arrived since they manage to mess up with the order, at least the duck of my fiancé was containing only 1 bullet :)

Wine:
- the wine was really good

Dessert:
- the dessert was good

Overall:
- one of the worse value for money ever, I hope it was just a bad day for them

“Back after so many years!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The first time my husband invited me to dinner, 30 years ago, was to the Barbizon.
It was an icnredible experience, and it became our favorite.
We went back after many years - are now living in the US - and it was as we remembered it "prefect".

“Very good restaurant, but overpriced”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Food and overall experience is very good, but make no mistake it is also very expensive. You will probably end up paying over EUR100 per person and there are other restaurants that are just as good but a lot cheaper.

“Elegant, great food and great service”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Located in a beautiful country surrounding, but just a few miles from down town Brussels. Best on a nice summer evening to enjoy dinner in the beautiful garden under the stars.
French cuisine at its best. light tasty and flavorful. Good selection of meat, fish, venison with excellent vegetables. Wine list is very extensive and excellent. Service is very professional and efficient.
This is the perfect place for a quiet and memorable occasion, but it is not cheap.
