Boogaers Bis

Restaurant details
Reviewed April 30, 2014

My wife and I had a pleasant evening at Boogaers 29 April. The service was good and, despite what other reviewers have noted, we found it to be friendly. The wait staff reorganized themselves so that we had an English speaking waitress (much appreciated, thank you).

We opted for the three course, fixed price menu. The asparagus soup was good (but not Marche 17). The salmon was a generous portion but a touch overcooked in our minds and the rhubarb desert superb. They certainly do not rush you here and some will find the staging too slow, as at least one other reviewer may have noted.

This clearly is a "local" spot. A number of diners were on their own and well known to the staff. The cuisine is traditional Belgian with a touch of France, in my mind. The price point is good value for money for what is provided, but not an inexpensive place to have dinner in our opinion. The venue itself was clean and very hospitable. We will go back the next time we are in Turnhout.

Somehow hidden in a courtyard at the end of a gangway at the main marketplace and impossible to reach by car as the whole area is only for pedestrian. Nice setting, well lighted cosy place. Super friendly, efficient and attentive service. Great amuse bouche. Small menu featuring classical dishes with a innovative hint. Well chosen wine list and good selection of alcoholic drinks.
Great value.

The wife thought her langoustine with squid ink pasta was expensive and a tad overcooked but my steak was spot on.

The white asparagus and brown shrimp amuse bouche was a tasty unexpected treat and the house red and white by the glass were quaffable
