We had a very nice afternoon at Le Fox with 4. Great menu with excellent seafood and Belgian cheeses. However, the most points go to the excellent service and wine choice (which was reasonably priced). Nice location, setting and easy athmosphere,

We were well served in this 2 stars restaurant and it's worth it. Of course not too cheap, but what can one expect, the service is delightfull. The restaurant isn't tall so reservations are necessary. The kitchen is very acceptable for anyone. We all enjoyed our stay at the hotel as well

When Michelin hands out stars to restaurants, not only do they take into account the food but a multitude of other aspects. In my humble opinion I believe this is how they decided on 2 stars:
Half a star - Food
One and a half star - Valet service, overnight stay possible, chef being owner of the restaurant.
Chef Stéphane Buyens is a bit of a landmark in Belgium, owning 2 stars, appeared in several tv shows where he clearly knew what he was talking about, I guess, and finally chairman of the Order Of The 33 Belgian Mastercooks. With such a resumé I was allowed to keep my hopes up.
When we enter the restaurant we get a grumpy greeting from the chef who leads us to our table in the middle of the room, no window table available he says while one stayed empty all evening and we booked 3 months in advance. We also remain stuck with our coats.
The decor in the restaurant is very old fashioned, the menu's look like they've been picked up in the 70's. The hostess barely present.
The food is classic, it's good but not what was expected. I would have expected more seafood too being at the coast. Talking about the presentation of the plates is barely worth it.
It's a quite gutting feeling to drive for 2 hours for this but in the end, luckily the bill wasn't too high. 5 courses @ 105€ incl wines +45€/person

This is a great place to go! Coming to this restaurant is like coming home. Top food, great wines, excellent and extremely friendly service. Whenever you are in the region and you are looking for a gastronomic experience, then you definetely have to come here. It is not cheap but it is really worth the money.
