This was our fourth visit to l'Auberg'in. We came away from our other visits sometimes very pleased, sometimes disappointed. Mixed feelings, but that obviously did not stop us from returning.
Pleasant welcome in this warm, "cottage-y" ambiance restaurant in the Woluwe St. Pierre district of Brussels. Nice table for four opposite the blazing fireplace, which is also used for grilling purposes. Very good service. Full on a Thursday evening, so be sure to make reservations well ahead. The only draw-back are the uncomfortable chairs.
Quite extensive à la carte options, both as entrées and main courses. Also a 4 course menu at a reasonable €44. I tried the salade de langoustines as a starter, which was nicely presented, but didn't taste much of langoustines.
The head waiter had enthusiastically recommended the noisettes d'agneau (as it was lamb season), grilled on afore-mentioned open fire. Excellent choice, perfectly grilled.
Rather modest wine list, but as this is not a high-flying restaurant, you don't need a high-flying wine either. We tried a St. Joseph from the Rhône Valley and everyone at the table commented on its good quality and perfect match to the lamb.
Desserts are always very much a matter of individual taste and can be disappointing. This was the case for us. Nothing special.
In summary, nice ambiance, very good service, nice food, reasonably priced and not too loud. Perfect for an evening out with friends.
