Bart. Rare combination of humor, knowledge, skills, warmth, speed, composure and flawless service. Add to that the impressive menu list, the delicious food, the cozy interior and the expedient service ...

A warm welcome as usual by Bart and his crew. We tried again one of the monthly suggestions of fish and the result was excellent. The service has no weak points. The quality of the proposed wine was great. Quality/price top. Reservation is recommended.

Banmolens, Track75, Mart and (perhaps) Bord'eau are competing in Harelbeke within this category of 'better affordable brasserie or bistro'. Muyzelmolen belonging to the other category of gastronomic retaurants, these four all have their advantages and disadvantages, stronger and weaker points, but they all deserve our regular visit. Mart has made the strongest impression on us lately by its warm welcome,... More

not cheap, but good quality food, in a cosy interior. The restaurant is usually quite busy, also during weekdays (lunch), so reservation is recommended.

Cute place but not everything that's on the menu is there if you come too late, so at 14:00h there was no more steak :( so I went for the shrimps with wok veggies, not a good choice for someone who doesn't like cauliflower, but everybody around me was happy with their meal. Why do I rate this restaurant excellent?... More

+ : elegant interior, good wines, friendly and professional staff - : a bit too expensive for cheap food like pasta/wok/crèpe If you can't make a choice between bord'eau and De Mart ; De Mart is more elegant and formal. Bord'eau is a bit less refined but warmer.

This time, welcome and service were warm and efficient. Just perfect. Location and interior decoration are interesting. The food is high-level brasserie if you want. Big portions. Not cheap. Not a gastronomic restaurant either. And I am not sure whether or not I would like it to be one. Excellent for an evening out with friends.

I visited Flanders recently and had dinner at The Mart in Harelbeke. Everything was surprisingly wonderful, from the ambience to the champagne and wine to the Carpaccio, Dover sole and incredibly tender ribeye steak and frites to the Dame Blanche! Truly a memorable meal, and the service was friendly and excellent. Don't just try this restaurant if you are IN... More

This region of Flanders probably has the best restaurants in the world, and even in local brasseries you can experience world-level culinary dreams. The entire region however is also characterized by a gigantic flaw: lack of customer orientation. Most staff is analphabetic, illiterate, on this point. They do not care who you are, why you came, why you should come... More
