In De Wulf in Dranouter, Belgium (2015 review)

Rating: 94. His restaurant is at the top of its game, yet on Friday the 23rd of October chef Kobe Desramaults announced that he'll be closing In De Wulf in December 2016. This news does not mean that he is retiring however. Desramaults on his decision: "I'm 35 years old and for 12 years I given everything for my restaurant; now it's time for reflection".

Hof Van Cleve in Kruishoutem - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 100. Once a simple brasserie serving traditional Belgian food, Hof van Cleve is now widely recognised as one of Belgium's gastronomic greats. Chef-owner Peter Goossens (b. 1964) started his career at a Belgian catering college in Koksijde, after which he continued this training in Paris, working in a number of Michelin-starred kitchens, including the then two-starred Le Pré Catelan. When he ...

Comme Chez Soi in Brussels - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 90. In the early nineties the Belgian capital boasted no fewer than 3 restaurants with three Michelin-stars. They were Bruneau, Romeyer and Comme Chez Soi. Furthermore, Brussels was the home of 4 two-star restaurants and 18 one-star restaurants. Things have changed much since then: chefs retired or moved on to other ventures, and sometimes the restaurants simply closed. The numbers dwindled and in the...

De Jonkman in Bruges - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 93. The beautiful, medieval market town of Bruges was the cultural capital of Europe in 2002, but it can also lay claim to being one of the culinary capitals of Belgium. In the Michelin guide 2013 it sports no fewer than two 3-star restaurants, two 2-star establishments, five places with 1 star and seven Bib Gourmands. Quite impressive for a relatively small city with some 117,000 inhabitants. On...

't Zilte in Antwerp - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 93. It would be stating the obvious to say that the Belgians, both in Flanders and in Wallonia, are Burgundian people. Food and drink are very important, even essential, aspects of life here. Historically they are Burgundian too however; in the 15th century, large parts of what is today the Kingdom of Belgium became part of the Duchy of Burgundy. After the death of Charles le Téméra...

In De Wulf in Dranouter, Belgium - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 93. Dranouter in Belgium is a small village with some 700 inhabitants in the fields of Flanders, just southwest of Ypres at less than 1 mile from the French border. It would perhaps be slightly uncharitable to say that it is in the middle of nowhere, but it is certainly a peaceful place. It is peaceful now; almost a century ago it was in Flanders Fields, just a few miles behind the fron...

Nuance restaurant in Duffel (near Antwerp)

Rating: 95. Flemish chef Thierry Theys has been taking Belgium by storm. After having trained at Ducasse in Monaco and at Hans van Wolde's two-star Beluga restaurant in Maastricht, Thierry and his partner Sofie Willemarck opened Nuance restaurant in Duffel (some 20 minutes from Antwerp) in 2008. The next year the restaurant was already awarded its first Michelin star and the second star fol...

Rating: 98. It was only last November that Hertog Jan restaurant in Sint-Michiels near Bruges was awarded a third Michelin star, the first restaurant in Belgium to gain a third star since Peter Goossens' Hof van Cleve in 2005. Head-chef of Hertog Jan is 33 year old Gert de Mangeleer, which makes this young Flemish chef one of the youngest three-star chefs in Europe. During his training at restaura...
