Chez Seino SAY YES !!!

A single daily menu, pure gastronomy, Franco Japanese. Fabulous value, feel the ZAP of REAL FRESH FOOD!
5 courses @51. To start pop-in-the-mouth morsels of teryaki sauce Salmon, egg flan and a great fat sea-shell (whelk) downed with a glass of saké (on the house).
Next come morsels of ham-on-the-bone freshly cooked in herbs and sea-weed accompanied by celeriac and turnip delicately topped with a few drops of miso sauce ... yummy, Followed by (and we switch now to plate-size portions) ... here comes the KILLER:
Halibot filet on a bed of alfalfa with scalions, tiny Japanese mushrooms (name?), slivers of bacon, fish done to a TURN your palate left fresh and tingling. HEAVENLY, my mouth waters at the memory ... At this point I felt I had eaten enough ... but wait : dishes proudly held aloft ... the waiter sweept in bearing the plat de resistance ... pheasant (the season has just begun, evidence = signs of buckshot) with sauté veg al denté :turnip, chicons, baby carrots, sprouts ... the bird's flesh tooth tender, neither rosé nor overdone : OH MAGIC MOMENT!
Force me to decide my preference it would be for the halibut, a rare luxury to find in a restaurant.

There is one place (fusion, don't you just HATE the word!) in town boasting gastronomy pomp and fuss, but chez SEINO it is the very UNDERSTATEMENT that enhances the magic. They will get a star ... I'm prepared to bet on it. Drop what you are doing, get up and GO! It is SUPERlative.

Excellent service, but variable food. Snails are not our favorite, and a dish looking like jellyfish (see picture) did not stack up. Great fish and chicken dishes, and a delicious desert!

I visited here for a lunch and a dinner. French cuisine with Japanese taste is very nice for me. You can enjoy not only wine but also Japanese sake here. Every dishes are reasonable price and I believe it's worth going. I recommend a reservation because it is crowded recently.

They opened last year and are nicely situated in a calm neighbourhood.
They serve traditional Japanese dishes. You can even taste some sake from their excellent collection.
Before ordering they ask if you have any allergies! Wonderful!
For lunch, you have a Japanese starter followed by a revisited Belgian classic main dish. The home made ice-cream was also delicious!
A must go!!!

When a beautifully dressed plateau of assortment of seven different dishes is put forth as an entree, you know you are in for a treat. Crispy veggies, mussels souffle with miso, fish with cauliflower, perfectly cooked salmon, shrimps and smoked eel, pork and beef; a good contrast of taste and texture something for everyone. There was a choice of pork and fish for main and they both were cooked to perfection and quite delicious. fresh cheese icecream or chocolate fondante for dessert. 22 euros for three course lunch menu (plus coffee) which changes daily. Wine list is also quite amusing. They offer a 5 course dinner menu for 55 euros.There was nothing to put finger on, we ate well and were completely satisfied by the food, service, presentation and atmosphere. Its advertised as a franco-japonais while I feel it lacked a bit in fusion of flavours.
