“Really great”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We ate at De Stoove as one of four restaurants and thought is was wonderful. The building is lovely with a super open uncluttered space. Its a stone's throw from the square bt the quality of the food was a cut above that in the square. We had a full menu for €55 which included absolutely everything including wine and aperetif and coffee. The food was really, really good. It was a terrific blend of French with some Flemish accents. The owner is really friendly. We were really taken by this little place. You must go.

“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Had a family lunch there over the weekend and ended up taking the monthly menu. Food was decent but not special in any way ... would probably have been better to choose some dishes from the menu, but the menu is in fact very limited. So mixed feelings about this place ... no plans to go back.

“could have been better”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

we chose De Stoove because because it was Michelin recommended, it was a little disappointing, mainly only potato was chips, which unfortunately were dry and stodgy, there was a special offer of moules, chips and wine for 30 euros, which might have been worth trying, overall an expensive meal which failed to hit the mark. Good owner waiter and service.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

This restaurant has one fork on ViaMichellin so it did create some expectations but it was certainly not worth that quotation that evening. We did reserve but the restaurant was almost empty except another couple that Thursday evening which did not help creating a good atmosphere. The first disappointment was the annoucement that several fish dishes were not available that evening reducing the menu cart by almost half, limiting our choices. As an appitizer we took a a carpaccio of thon which was so, so since it was almost frozen on our plate, the added topping was good. My wife did ask the waiter if he could do something about some draught in the restaurant. A door was closed but did not resolve the problem and we were not asked to take another table even the restaurant was almost empty. The main dish of my wife was an entrecote which was much too salty, taking away the meat tast completely. My plate was sweetbread but it was too soft. After these disappointements we did not take a dessert and left the restaurant.
