Whilst in Belgium last month (Saturday 21 July), my husband and I were taken to a wonderful restaurant for a 7-course gourmet dinner; The Kasteel Wurfeld. We walked into the large Castle through beautifully landscaped gardens, and over the surrounding moat. There were large lanterns outside, and spacious airy dining rooms, with huge windows overlooking the terraces.
We dined from an extremely well balanced 7-course gourmet menu which was beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious. The waiter described every course with a great sense of occasion as it arrived, and the wine flowed freely; we never had to ask for glasses to be refilled.
The first course was a tasty amuse bouche which included a mini lobster mousse and a cold soup; this was followed by wonderful beef tartare and pate; then a tasty fish course (mackerel); a sharp and cleansing lemony sorbet; and the piece de resistance, two types of lamb. Finally there was a trio of puddings. All the courses were sized perfectly, so that one didn’t feel overfull, and the timing was equally well-paced. This is certainly a dining experience that I would recommend and hope to repeat. The bill was presented discreetly and the service was impeccable.
