I tried this place for the first time on a recent trip to Belgium and ended going back for a second time it was so good! I selected the menu of the day with wine. Every course was delicious and the wines were paired perfectly. We ate outside both times on the patio in the back yard. The location was beautiful and the service was gracious and attentive. The clientele was a varied age group from their 20's to their 70's. I would describe the food as modern continental with a French influence. Each course was a visual masterpiece! I understand they have some hotel rooms on the property but didn't check it out. I hope to go back again soon.

Very good. The food and wine was excellent. And the staf very hospitable and professional. We enjoyed the personal approach of Nadine. Made us feel at home.

This restaurant is a bit pretentious regarding decoration and the way food is presented. The overall quality of food is decent but not something to write home about. Service is reasonably OK.

We visited this restaurant two, three times. It's a nice concept with the open kitchen and quite a nice interior. The food was excellent in taste and design. The accompany of wine was ok so far.
The staff was not very attentive. We felt a little like disturbing factors.
After we were seated, it took quite a long time to get the card, but then, after we ordered the menu, a second waitress came with the card and asked again for our orders, very uncoordinated.
After paying the bill, with surprising extra cost for an additional slice of baguette, no one of the staff took care about our jackets nor giving us a farewell.
So we left with a nice impression of the food but we were very disappointed with the service staff.
It's a great pity, we wanted to test the restaurant for a visit with a couple of friends but so we decided to go to an other place.

Went there last weekend because all of the good revieuwd on Tripadvisor. We arrived and wanted to sit outside because of the nice weather. This wasn't possible because of 'other reservations'. So we found a spot inside. I speak a bit French but my partner didnt. So when my partner asked questions in english to our hostess, she looked at me and answered in French. She only let us look at the menu of the season in stead of a la carte. We also took the wine arrangement. The staff didn't look interested in us at all. When we got our food she quickly mentioned in French what it was and then poored our wine saying: this wine ks from the west of Portugal. And left immediately! At our main dish they poored us not even a normal sip of wine. Absurd. we told each other in Dutch: is this all we're gonna get? We were shocked. When we finished our wine, my partner called for our hostess and before we could ask for more wine, she said: Im comming with more wine. So she probably could understand us before. The open kitchen is really nice to see the cheffs preparing the meals in front of you. Too bad that there was a child (of the owner?) walking around all the time in the kitchen. The cheff yelled at him once and he left. But 5 min later he arrived again with an ipad. Beautifull restaurant and good food but the service and atmosphere needs improving for sure.
