Benoit & Bernard Dewitte want more than a restaurant, an inspiring place of rest. You dine in a picturesque, poetic context and on a sweet summer day you imagine yourself almost in the South of France.

It is in each case where the brothers Dewitte aim: pure gastronomy that excels in genuine transparency. The restaurant is praised for the excellent quality of the product, the impeccable freshness of the ingredients and the refined aromas and textures.
