We were at the restaurant twice. The first time was close to the opening. It was a huge surprise for us. Although we didn't speak French at all and the waiter didn't speak English at all, we overcome the gap, and had a delicious meal. The food was at top level so was the service. Probably the best food we... More

Although we arrived shortly before last orders were taken at lunch-time, we were given a warm welcome. There were several other tables of diners and everyone looked as if they were enjoying themselves and the food. We were given clear explanations of the food, and not hurried at all. My husband had young veal chops, accompanied by a sauce that... More

Followed the T/A reviews and were not disappointed. The décor was a little cold for my taste and rather minimalist but I'm being picky...we were here for the food and the food was really very good. We both started with the scallops served with a celery foam and squid ink lobster ravioli - exceptionally good. Mains we picked the pigeon... More

My wife and I were strolling through the old town, turned on TripAdvisor "Near Me Now" and found this gem. Sophisticated yet simple interior, professional and friendly staff. We had a spectacular 3 course lunch, each enjoying 2 glasses of wine and coffee, for 35 euros each. Highlights included the beef carpaccio with foie gras starter and the apple/raspberry "crumble"...

The place is nice and friendly, but the service was really slow, maybe because the waitress was in hangover and smelt alcohol! This is unacceptable. The pasta was overlooked and tasteless. Do not go there!

Dear sir, We know you never came to eat in our restaurant, just like Brigitte C. We know you are a false profile. It's really pity to spill false informations. You can understand easily that I'm obliged to denounce such facts. More

We choose the fixed price menues with wine. The restaurant was busy and this should be kept in mind. All of the food was well presented using good ingredients, but......plates were cold and some dishes were delivered almost cold. the wine for the main course arrived when we were half way through our main course. The wines themselves were average.... More

We checked trip advisor to find this was at that time the 14th best restaurant in Namur. That's just nonsense - if it was rated the 14th best in Belgium that would be closer to the mark. I eat out a lot, privately and on business and it's possible to get jaded, but the originality and excellence of cooking made... More

Located in old Namur, the restaurant offers an original, tasty and most of the dishes can be adapted to vegetarian desires. The staff is very helpful, and the bill fits with the place and the settings.

This is restaurant has certainly more than three stars but probably less than four. I found the place nice, good service, delicious entrant (carpaccio) and the dessert was good also (it was creme brulée with Ice cream) The price was good (for Belgium standards) and the wine was outstanding. The only problem is that I did not like the main... More
