“Better than expected!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013 via mobile

It was difficult to find an open restaurant on a monday evening. Based on Tripadvisor we made diner reservations at Nata. The outside does not look very promising, with the restaurant - tearoom title, but the inside was very nice and comforting. We started with a mix off starters for us both, with shrimps, carpaccio, foie gras and a shrimp crocket. Very nice flavors and good presentation. For mains I had the sea-bass with mushroom risotto, which was really delicious and crispy. My wife had an elevated vol-au-vent, with Shimeji mushrooms and sweetbread. Certainly worth the 25 euro price. I skipped dessert, but my wife could really appreciate the moelleux au chocolat with a mango chutney. All and all a surprising and delicious restaurant visit.

“Nata - Not a bad restaurant”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

Dine at Nata on 29 September with traveling companion and native of Kortrijk.

We both ordered the Leffe special – glass of beer, scampi for an entree and then a steak with a huge bowl of fries to share.
The scampi was in a delicious sauce and the beef tasted good, but was a bit chewy.
All that for 25 Euro – not a bad deal in Europe.

“pleasant terrace, attentive service, good food”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

We walked around the Great Market Square, for deciding to try this restaurant. The terrace really looked inviting. Very attentive service. Prices are on the higher side, but the food is tasty and nicely presented.

“A delightful restaurant in Kortrijk's Grote Markt”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Friends took me to this restaurant on the marketplace. We began with a glass of beer outdoors on the terrace, but elected to move inside out of the wind for dinner.

Nata's an excellent restaurant. I had a magnificent codfish fillet, served with mashed potato and tiny, flavorful, North Sea shrimp. The presentation was visually very pleasing, but flavor and texture were the real highlights of the meal. The staff managed clientele moving from the streetside to the inside with grace and aplomb.

Check out the menu at http://www.natakortrijk.be .

“Very good quality for a good price”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

We discovered this restaurant last Saturday when visiting Kortrijk. My wife and I selected the Lunch Menu of the day for 19.5€ with dessert and coffee (15.5€ without dessert) and a bottle of Beaujolais Village for €22.5. Very pleased about the quality of the food, the wine and the service. To start we had a leek soup with an excellent dark bread (as an option we could have had the smoked salmon starter), followed by chicken with a mushroom sauce, baby cress and croquettes as well as Dame blanche for dessert. With the coffee they provided a cuberdon (specialty candy from Belgium) and a piece of black chocolate. We also got some chips and olives as cocktail snacks. If we happen to be back to Kortrijk, we will go back!
