Last minute reservation for dining on wednesday. Respectful space between the tables makes this place a perfect restaurant for romantic evenings. We ordered the full size menu "De Tuinkamer" and we didn't regret it, despite the price. It would be impossible to list everything keeping in mind that we have been served 8 (!) exquise, top level appetizers before the official menu got started. In the kitchen they manage to create dishes with special ingredients and tastes never heard of but also more classical dishes that you will never forget ( like the combination of lobster and chicken that may sound odd but that tasted so well balanced ). First impression is that the wine-package doesn't come cheap either but once you realise you will get 7 different wines of all around the world varying from an hungarian Tokay at the starter to the desert wine at the end you feel this was an honestly priced and must-have package. There is only 1 point that almost forced me to intervene : the speed. In many restaurants much too slow, in this Michelin star-restaurant too fast. I'm sure De Tuinkamer may be ready for a second Michelin-star. At that level, even more details become important which will force the restaurant to do something about the worn-out armrests of its seats.

I chose De Tuinkamer as I was late looking for a restaurant, and of course many local to Brussels were already booked. So I was a little curious to see how it would pan out. When we arrived (only one hour from south west Brussels), there were a lot of people making their way to the door, so I thought - oh dear maybe this is going to be a large busy place. I walked through the door and realized most of the people were going to the bakery, and restaurant was accessible via a separate door. Indeed the restaurant was upstairs but with a lovely garden (hence the name). The decor was really beautiful and restful. The service was exquisite as was the food. We had 9 appetizers with our champagne, while the chef prepared our menu. We had turbot with lobster and asparagus, and the bottle of German Riesling was excellent. I love their pproach to wine - constantly changing new wines, and a very interesting list. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

My wife and I, together with some friends, recently visited De Tuinkamer for a Sunday lunch. From the welcoming & aperitif until the closing coffee, the experience was great: nice people, friendly staff, nice ambiance (not to noisy!!), great food, good wine...
