Yes a small restaurant, but very cosy and great food, excellent wine choice and perfect service from the man who's doing it all. Situation close to Hotel La Réserve but away from the tourist traps.

Incredible restaurant, I have never tried so good food in Belgium before. The experience of one man taking care of the people and making all the food is incredible and amazing. I will definitely recommend everybody who are in Belgium to visit Bel Etage. The food is clearly worthy of Michelin stars.

The chef is omnipresent and perfect. The dishes were surprising. The service good, the wine excellent. The chef is doing reception, taking orders, creating excellent dishes. This is truly a hidden gem.

The charming owner/chef at Bel Etage is an amazing man. He single handedly greets, cooks, serves and chats with his guests (in several languages too!) This is no 'gimmick' either, 20 guests were served on the evening we visited last week. We had an unforgettable meal, the attention to every detail was there, quality of ingredients, cooked to perfection and... More
