Amazing fine food in a wonderful environment, with nice Terrace. Quality for us, is the most important thing. More than 250 wines on the wine list.
Meal, experience, staff, ... all very good. The restaurant looks very nice too. Food is delicious. The chef himself also comes to great the guests & is open for a chat - which always is nice & makes you feel important. Staff very friendly, young but efficient & nice.

This young very talented chef is working with excellent local ingredients and is mastering all skills necessary to bring you not just a meal, but an experience of flavors beyond your imagination.
He just got a 16/20 in the Gault Millau. And I'm certain that this will increase in the future.

This was our upteenth visit in ten years. This time was a birthday dinner for my wife.
Welcomed warmly as always by the head waiter. He knew us straight away, and removed our reservation tab from arrival list without confirming the name.
We were asked if he could take our jackets to be hanged up,always a good sign we think.
Ambiance was relaxed, decor has a soothing effect, nice low lighting but not low enough so you cannot see.
We both took a pre meal drink, and we took the "wild(Game) menu" (see below)
Apertiser (on the house as always) Courgette soup. Delicious taster, maybe could have been a little warmer, but that is a miner point.
Kreeft, pompoen met ganzenlever
Lobster, foie gras with pumpkin
Stunning first course. The sharpness from the pumpkin against the lobster was great. Two very clean plates went back to the kithen
Gebakken patrijs, witlof, Brioche
Fried partridge, chicory, Brioche
Good second course, nice and light. Partridge just cooked right, still moist and tender, nice contrast the the pepper from the chicory.
Gebakken hertenfilet met een saus van rode wijn, wildgarnituur
Baked fillet of venison with a sauce of red wine, wild garnish
Stunning third course. Fully bodied flavours against the sweetness from the poached pear and
Kaasbordje van Eric Murre
Cheese plate by Eric Murre
great way to finish we both had the dessert Napoleon. Again full of flavour (sharpness and sweet) from the different fruits, against sorbet hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
To go with the meal we took this wine "Bouchard Finlayson" Chardonnay “Kaaimansgat”
I dont usually go for a dry white, but this hit the spot with me. My wife could not find fault as she is a lover of South African white wines. Almost as good as a "Rijks"
To finish we had two coffees.
The staff seemed a lit out of sorts this evening. Dont get me wrong, nothing that spoiled the evening. They seemed a little flat compared to previous visits.
Total cost was about 170 euro. people may think that is a lot and yes it is. But for us, we have never had an OK meal here.
Just try this restaurant once, I dont think you would be disappointed

My husband went there with friends while I could not join, but insisted on taking me another time because he liked it so much. And indeed, it was delicious!

What a nice place to have a romantic (or other) dinner. Quality of food is simply great. Certainly worth visiting. Don't forget to make a reservation... showing up without can cause desillusion if there is no free table. Enjoy the fine authentic food

I visited this restaurant on the first day of the Italian specialities and I have to admit that it is one of my best experiences and a lot better than an Italian restaurant. The welcoming and the service is excellent and very friendly, the presentation is original and the food is of top-quality and delicious.
If you have the possibility to visit this restaurant in the coming Italian weeks, you certainly will not regret it !

I visited recently with my wife for dinner. There is basically a choice between two menu's - the Jeune Restaurateurs d'Europe (4-9 courses) or the crustacean (3-7 courses).
The food is very good, our lobster main dish was particularly succulent. The langoustine dish was really nice too.
There's a good choice of reasonably priced wines including wines by the glass at 5 or 6 euro.
Waitresses were very pleasant.
Tables are well spaced
It took an age between courses. We arrived just before 8pm and after two starters plus a couple of nibbles didn't get our main course until after 10:15, it was around a 45 minutes between the second starter and main course and my wife was getting impatient enough to think about paying and leaving, thankfully the lobster dish arrived and rescued the situation... There seemed to be only two chefs in the kitchen, and maybe if you have more courses they arrive quicker but there were certainly times when I looked around the room and no-one was eating at any of the ten tables.
There was no choice of dessert. I'm not keen on apricots and as it was described as apricot based (though there were only two small pieces of apricot in reality) I had to go for cheese.
Conclusion: Would we return? Probably, if only for the lobster dish. I would suggest to take at least 4 courses as they are small - we took the crustacean menu as four courses and I ate more bread than I would normally but still didn't leave too full. I would qualify that by saying that they didn't skimp on the amount lobster and of course both that and langoustine are expensive ingredients. You can take dishes as a la carte so maybe you get bigger portions if you do.

Sinds chef-kok Ritchie De Clercq, gastvrouw Lina Vanhese en gastheer Rony dit restaurant twee jaar geleden nieuw leven inbliezen, vinden steeds meer fijnproevers de weg naar dit uniek eetadres. Portobelfino verwijst naar een kwaliteitschocolademerk. Vaak gaat het om subtiele accenten zoals gerechten die op een creatieve manier in cacaoboter gebakken worden. In de keuken wordt de lat almaar hoger gelegd en dat vertaalt zich in hoogstaande culinaire gerechten, suggesties en menu's. Een van de specialiteiten is de 'Bouillabaisse':gemaakt met o.A. Langoustines en king krab. De vis is vooraf gegrild wat voor een bijzondere smaak zorgt. Ook het supermalse en smaakvolle Australisch vlees van met graan gevoederde runderen is een ontdekking waard. En heeft u iets te vieren, dan staat een feestzaal klaar (tot 30 personen). Een prima excuus om een volgend bezoek niet te lang uit te stellen.
Went in the evening with my business partner
Took the dried aged italian meat. Very good. The french fries had a special taste. Didnt particularly enjoy it but they said they are cooking in a fine pork grease, very expensive
Anyway all together was very good
Worth to try

François is for me the reference in the way you enjoy ice cream.
Not only is the ice cream excellent, but the choices you are offered guaranteed discovery and adventure for many enjoyable hours.
The location is beautiful, the service excellent and the price more than fair!
