I had the Scampi salad which was excellent. I ordered a side serve of bread which was super fresh. When I wondered inside I noticed that there were a couple of special brews mad just for this restaurant and decided to give one a try. I wasn't disappointed.

I had this restaurant on my wish list for a very long time... Finally we managed to eat here and it was wonderful. It not only tasted great but you feel the love and passion of the chef who prepares it. Also the 'Brouwersmenu' for € 37 is very good value. We had a Bulgarian white wine, viognier - we... More

As expected, 't Hommelhof has a great beer selection featuring several beers literally brewed across the street. However, the food is the most distinguishing characteristic of this restaurant. We had the rabbit, which was beautifully prepared. It was cooked in a blonde beer with vegetables. It was so tender and impressively delicious without any sort of "gamey" taste. The server... More

In the beautiful village of Watou there's a fine restaurant. Watou also know for his artproject in summer end his gregorion festival. We went eating in the restaurant when the time was ready for hop shoots. You can choose with or without the hop shoots. If you take them, it cost a little more, but it is a whole experience,...

We had a very nice meal in this restaurant which is famous for its foodpairing with beer. You have to go in the season of the hop shoots. Hop shoots with a poached egg and some mousseline with beer, just perfect.

Had a wonderful meal here with our party of 6. The place is very cosy and welcoming as are the serving staff and the Chef. The food was wonderful and perfectly matched with the beer suggestions. The "brewers Menu" was excellent value for money at only 37€ for three courses. This is a place that we will definitely be returning... More

The Hommelhof gives you good quality flemish food for fair prices. There's always something exiting on the menu: fresh fish, pigeon - last year my wife ate a lovely plate with well prepared lung, liver and even brains.... But dpon't let that scare you away - there is something here for everyone. And of course, eat your food with a... More

Reservations by phone only, but they spoke English very well. Also a pleasure to meet the great man himself along with some of the next generations in the... More

We were given a warm welcome on a particularly wet winters evening, but where was everyone else. We ate in solitary state until a couple came in later on. However, the fire was well stoked, the St Bernadus flowed and we feasted on well made pork rillettes served with fresh crusty bread, a plate of cherry tomatoes radish and baby... More

Never a bad meal here. The food is fresh, seasonal and well prepared. Servers are low key, but attentive. There is an English menu available. On this visit we sat on the outdoor patio in front which was quite pleasant. There is a well chosen beer list to go with the food. There is also a prix fix menu available... More
