Came here for the second time as the first visit was so great. The chef is very nice and explains the menu at the table. We had the season menu (€55) and a bottle of Viña Pedrosa (they also offer a wine pairing for €25 for those who prefer this). Excellent food and service. Will come back!

So I had lunch for the second time at Matty some 6 months after the first visit. The restaurant is simply out of this world. Had the set menu again and every dish was delicious. Matty and his team work hard on every detail. The food is simply as good as it possibly can be. The restaurant is also very... More

Wow!! We had the set lunch menu. I loved the main course. My husband loved dessert. The food was fantastic, presentation amazing and the service unbeatable. Congratulations on such a wonderful restaurant. The price was reasonable and very good value. Keep it up. We can't wait to return.

I had a lovely evening! Matty and Katrien are wonderful people with a passiona and a love for the food and their guests. You can choose à la carte, but the 4 courses set menu sounded so exquisite we went for it. Everything tasted wonderfully! We also chose the accompanying wines. If you are the driver of the evening, ask... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by Matty who took our jackets. He then explained the menu and we went for the set lunch menu. This was an excellent meal. Started with veal then hare and the mocha ice-cream desert was simply the best dessert I have ever had! What is the secret of making something so delicious? The restaurant environment... More

This restaurant is not clearly signposted and is hidden away among Turkish kebab shops. We had starters in an outdoor terrace at the back and were introduced to the taster menu. A tasty salad with herring, fillet of cod with mussels and prawns, followed by a delicious fillet steak and a tasty red fruit dessert. There is ann open kitchen,... More

We jumped in a cab to the restaurant and it is not clearly signed outside, which we liked. When we went through we were given a table in the garden for our glass of bubbly and entree bites. We looked at the menu but was then informed of the 4 course taster, which was absolutly amazing!! I hope they are... More

I love this place, it is family-owned and the food and service are excellent! I was visiting from Australia and gathered some of my family for an exquisite lunch here. The food was excellent, we selected fish-based dishes because I don't eat meat and that was not a problem at all. We received service with a smile and were even... More

Sometimes you are lucky to get a meal during a first visit that shows the excellence of a cook. And the next visit you think it has been a mistake. Not here! It has been umpteen times we had the pleasure to visit Matty, with Matty himself in the kitchen and Katrien as a very elegant and perfect, warm en... More
