What a pleasure to discover a place that has kept up with tradition while adding just a touch of modernism. None of that molecular BS, just proper cooking. These guys could be the proud successors of Pierre Romeyer! Service impeccable and friendly. Wine list impressive. Highly recommended

Meal: excellent, service: excellent too. We came for lunch. It is expensive, but they do have a Mich. star. The lunch menu at 40 € was in my view the best choice - 3 course with very nice apetizers. Lamb was succulent. Service is very friendly and efficient - eg they ask you at the beginning how much time you... More

I've been several times and each time it's superb. Apero and amuse bouche was served in the sofa lounge. 3 little dishes with a very nice presentation and well combined favors. We chose the 5 services menu. Each of the dishes were a bomb of tastes. Service is as always correct.

I had not been to this restaurrant in a long, long time as the first time I went was really not the best experience. However, I was invited by people who have been going on a regular basis and assured me it had improved a lot. And it had! Fewer tables than before, so quieter and much more enjoyable. Better...

Excellence in everything. Ingenious associations of tastes and textures, nice presentation. The place is beautiful and charming, the service perfect, with a delicate balance of friendliness and discretion. Marit has the charm of the owners and the perfection of an enterprise.

Fabulous family run restaurant on the very outskirts of Waterloo/Braine l'Alleud. Easily accessible as it is located just off the Brussels ring. It is a cosy fermette style building with stables, fields an own livestock. Very friendly, attentive and knowledgable staff. The restaurant is not too big and it has got a very light and open tastefully decorated interior. The... More

Great gastronomic menu and attentive service. Only negative point is the lighting - a bit too bright for an intimate dinner.

To me a restaurant has to be an OVERALL nice experience. The food, however excellent, doesn't always make up for the rest. What I like about the many - even small budget - restaurants I go to is having the choice! We went for a birthday dinner (6people) at Marit. How can a restaurant with such a reputation and price...

I almost didn't want to write the review....I want to keep the Jacques Marit as much to myself as possible! The Jacques Marit is a classy, family run restaurant. In the kitchen you have the men's touch with creative menus inspired by all over the world, but also by the Belgian cuisine. Products are always fresh and of very high... More
