I'd go to Belgium just to eat at this restaurant! I've been there four or five times now and never been disappointed. The updated decor, with hues of purple and turquoise, is modern without being garish, the chairs are comfortable and tables well spaced. The welcome - by the Chef's wife - is warm and charming without being over the top.

Food-wise, some might be disappointed by the single menu approach (the menu stays the same for a few weeks then changes, making good use of local and seasonal produce) but it is actually a winner across the line. Fabulous pre-starters and petits fours with coffee, beautiful presentation and food which is light, innovative, tasty and a testament to the talented chef, who is becoming more and more self-assured.

The wait between courses can be a bit long. Our young waiter was lovely and smiled a lot but maybe another pair of hands front of house wouldn't go amiss. The wine list is good and not too onerous (the wines of the month are always good, we had an Alsace Riesling which was perfect for the starters and fish course). If preferred, you can splash out on the food and wine match menu.

A steal at €48 for five courses. Five stars.
