We were rather skeptical when going to Jeroen Meus's restaurant.
But we loved it.
We loved the barok style interior. It is right, it it rather dark inside, but this gives you the cosy feeling you're alone.
The atmosphere is cool, casual and relaxed. No one really dresses up.
We loved the food, from the first bite till the great desert, surprising and very tasty. The wine is well chosen, some quite positively special.
Service was kind. Sommelier is contagiously enthusiastic, with good reason.
We certainly return.

Second visit, first with friends, now with the family. This quality restaurant deserves at least one star. Every course is stunning to look at, and extremely fresh and tasty. We also had the supplementary cheese course and did not regret it at all. The sommelier is the best one we ever had. Try to avoid an internet reservation as it will take you almost a year, put give them a call.

My favorite place in my second hometown. It is the ideal restaurant for celebrations, special occasions or for when family comes over, and you really want to awe them. They serve some of the finest Belgian cuisine, in a nice cozy setting, with professional service and good quality control.

Went there with 6 people. Hard to find and difficult parking. First two dishes were good. Main course "Black Agnus" was no cooking pref asked, served almost cold and just a small piece of meat. Dessert named "strawberry" didn't taste at all like strawberry. 1 small cup of coffee no refill. 125 € per person. Never again

This is a perfect place for a business meeting. The food was amazing. If I do have a remark, the main dish was steak, great although but it was grudging. The interiour was so dark and kitschy. But I do not complain ... super. Brought with taste and flavours.
