We had a lovely lobster menu with 5 courses. Food was great! The wine card is very correct and has a lovely range of international wines. We asked matching wines, which were ok but where price quality was not in balance. Take a nice bottle of wine, you will pay less and quality will be better. Service was very cool, not personal allthough ther where just a few guests.

We have used our bongo bon in this restaurant , as many others did - the restaurant was fully booked on the sunday evening. (bongo expired March 31st).
But we were nicely surprised. The restaurant is small, nicely decorated ; the service was very good, not too familiar, not too slow. The 4 course menu is very good , surprising combinations - price/quality ratio very good. This restaurant deserves to be recommended to others.

Price/quality-wise this is one of the greatest discoveries you can make in the Belgian region of Limburg. This small restaurant (about 20 people can be seated) is located in an old barn and looks at the same time warm and relaxed, and stylish and luxurious. It's being run by a couple with almost no help, which explains the very low prices (4 course set menus for 35 or 50€). The service is fitting with the surroundings: very friendly without being overly familiar.
I have been here at least 6 or 7 times and every meal was a lovely surprise. The cooking is subtle, with ingredients that match perfectly although the combinations are definitely not always obvious. Almost every dish offers a new and surprising combination of tastes.
In short: what you get here is a near-Michelin-star-experience for half the price. Vaut le voyage.

we had a great evening, the 4 course menu at 48euros was splendit. every dish was well looked after, the food was perfectly paired on every plate and the lamb was perfecly prepared. it was surprising to see only 6 ppl including the 2 of us were dining here. on previous visits we saw more ppl but, unfortunatly the wait to be served our dishes was considerable and, although the food was still ui to standards it lacked the finesse it had with fewer guests in this overall lovely old barn.
