It had been probably 4 years since I'd eaten at Bovis but when I had an overnight stay in Zaventem I knew exactly where I wanted to have dinner. Nothing has changed. The steaks are still excellent - perfectly cooked, well seasoned and well rested. The trio of sauces were brilliant, particularly the bordelaise. Service was very good, I liked... More

We are here on business and we're looking for a good steak, we found this place on TripAdvisor and decided to just jump in a uber and go, when we arrived (Wednesday evening) having not booked, we thought it would be empty, how wrong.... it was the only place in this town that was completely full. We walked in and... More

Overall one of the best restaurant for meat I have ever been to. They provided top service and very polite and "just the right" type of follow-up during the meal. For sure I'm coming back for more

We drove 40 km just for this restaurant Large choice of quality beef en very well prepared. Nice wines and good service until the moment you ask if the french fries are well enough baked. The waiter took without a word our french fries and the owner of the business came personnaly to our table explaining quite agressively that he... More

Everyone loves the ability to have the butcher carefully carve the perfect steak for a great dining experience at home. Bovis brings that experience right to your table in a small and intimate dining room that allows you to select your cut and size (in 100 gram increments) of steak which is then simply cut and brought back for your...

A strong combination of high quality food and a pleasant informal atmosphere. We ordered as a group of 8 'van alles wat' which is a dish of several thin carpacio 'sliced' meat as an appetizer. From the menu you can order different type/kinds of meat from several countries. It has a delicate taste and melts in your mouth. Your selected... More

Let's be clear, I AM NOT A MEAT LOVER... That being said I have to admit I really enjoyed the place, the recommendations, the explanations given and the humour of the owner. The piece of meat that I ordered was just ultra tender, exactly cooked as I asked and accompanied with tasty mushrooms and home made Belgium fries. The desert... More
