“On the road for a 2nd Star”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This was our first visit and we wonder why we did not discover this restaurant earlier on. It has everything to earn a Michelin star: great, great food; perfectly presented; op and top service in a quite and relaxed atmosphere. It is a must-go if you are in the area

“Beautiful restaurant and friendly staff”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We have been several times already to Margaretha's in Oudenaarde and each time we had a very nice experience. The staff is very friendly, the food and wine are excellent. The interior is really worth the visit as well.

“Really excellent restaurant”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

This really is an excellent restaurant. The quality of the food is at least one star, if not more. The setting is traditional, but definitely fitting with the history of the building. We really enjoyed every dish of the menu. Highly recommended!

“A nice surprise”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

As we were in the region, one of our friends sand us over to this restaurant. It was a surprisingly good exprerience. At the outside it was looking like a kind of a tea-room, the furniture is a bit over the top and the ambiance as the service a bit cool. The food on the other hand was very nice! Great pigeon dish, the cook has a very nice touch. The wine list is a bit on the expensive side. The overall experience was worth the visit.

“Quite exceptional place”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

To start: the place is exceptional. A 15th century building ( said to be the birth house of Margaretha de Parma), nicely renovated after 30 years abandoned. The restaurant has a Michelin Star since 2012, but the people are not high brow. And the food is 'sublime'. A bit expencive, that's for sure. Count 100 euro pp all in for the main menu, including Champaign and coffee. But ut's wort every penny.
