Excellent food in a perfect relaxed atmosphere. The chef constantly surprised us with combinations don't seem to pair but created exquisite flavours. The personnel is very kind and service oriented. They are always aware of your table needs without being intrusive in the conversation. A very enjoyable evening.

This restaurant is undoubtedly the best in the southern province of Limbourg. The food is of unprecedented quality, well-prepared with outstanding ingredients and plated up tastefully. Have been there for the set lunch on several occasions. This time we went for a 5 course supper which was completed with an excellent wine arrangement. Also very interesting a la carte options....

We enjoyed our dining experience on 21 July overall and agree that "De Mijlpaal" has 1-star Michelin potential when everything comes together. However, that was not entirely the case regarding the 4-course "Chef's Menu" we ate. The amuse bouche and starters, where 1st rate...simple, but not simplistic, and well-balanced culinary taste delights. But, the main dish left us unimpressed as... More

Good friendly service, even though quite slow. The restaurant was absolutely packed, so that was possibly the reason. All food was beautifully presented. Very nice choice of wines, we picked Pouilly Fumé and were definitely not disappointed. However, food was unpredictable and "unstable" quality-wise. One of the starters (lobster and tomato variations) was absolutely delightful, an explosion of colour and... More

Fine dinning in the middle of Tongeren, They certainly deserved their Michelin Star. Had lunch there and price/quality was excellent.

Been here twice in the past year and twice it was a real dining experience. Love their food, love the modern decoration, my new number one restaurant. The host is friendly and not to distant like in some other star-restaurants. I recommend it to everyone who enjoys a more formal, quality menu. Tip: try the adjusted wines, they're extraordinary in... More

This restaurant experience was absolutely perfect. We came here for lunch on Easter Monday and were presented with a special five course tasting menu with matching wines. Every single course was superb. The flavour combinations were innovative and delighted the senses, easily equaling if not exceeding the quality that we have seen from several one Michelin-starred restaurants in London. The...

It is useless to describe what we had for dinner as the menu changes.We took the suggested gastronomic menu with appropriate wines and as a couple experienced in exploring restaurants we were pleasantly surprised. The combinations on the plates and the wines need no criticism. As we visited on a saturday evening all tables were taken and service was a... More

Wonderful meal here with a friend last week dining from the 6 course Menu 'Du Mijlpaal'. Only course not spot on, although still very good, was the beef 3 ways where the superb entrecote, plenty big enough on it's own for a tasting menu, did not need or really match with the beef with smoked eel or the thai beef...
