Very nice food. Friendly waiters. Good wine card and great help chosing. Food not all was exeptional, but overall good price vs quality. Going back!

I love this restaurant! The staff are super friendly and the setting really cosy. Normally I don’t like going to restaurants during lunchtime, but here it’s a afternoon well spent. The food never lets me down. If there is pigeon on the menu: do not...hesitate. Cannot wait to go back this friday!More

The food from this one star Michelin restaurant is in one word: top! Delicious and fresh, no comments at all. Unfortunately the setting and the decorations of the restaurant are so basic, that it is hard to believe that this restaurant received one star from...Michelin. We sat outside during lunch but when looking around we thought we were visiting a brasserie next to a busy road. In fact there is a busy road next to the restaurant, but that's OK after all. It is the building itself which has no 'charm' and is a little old-fashioned. Service was not OK, not friendly and only giving a basic explanation when serving the plates and wines.More

The building is nicely decorated. Posh and comfy. Tables a little narrow. The big menu is not very expensive : 65€ for five courses plus four mises en bouche is a good deal. The plates are beautiful, it’s imaginative and interesting but in the mouth...a real lack of salt and “gourmandise” sadly puts you in a little disappointed state after each course. If the menu is kindly priced, the simili “spritz” served in tiny champagne flutes was billed 24€ (2) which I thought was really over the top. All in all we had a nice meal but nothing was surprising nor deeply memorable. It’s a one star restaurant and I think it won’t ever be more.More

We've been living in Texas for the past 4 years, and make it a habit to tour the best tables in Belgium once a year. Already the second time Aux Petits Oignons, and I have to say the cooking skills of Stephane & his team...keep climbing. The Michelin star is most definitely deserved, now when it comes to the 15 from Gault&Millau, I feel it could soon turn into a 16! Upgrading the side bread and smiling a bit more (ladies) would certainly help to this regard. Overall, this restaurant is still superbly priced for what you get and how you get it (service). "Mention Speciale" for the sauce of the Maigre Roti, a tremendous success! Congrats to the whole team, please keep up the good work! LudovicMore

My wife and I were impressed by this place. The service was French and super-friendly - they made an effort to say some words in Dutch. The food was a-ma-zing. It looked and tasted incredible.

We went to this place with a group of 6. The restaurant is located in the French speaking part of Belgium, but almost all staff members speak at least 2 languages! Although the restaurant was almost completely full, the service was fast. The food is...of good quality, tasty and presented with care. We only have 1 remark: compared to other comparable restaurants, their price is too low.More

i have been in this small resto 3 times, the first time i had a duck but it was very chuwie like rubber, the second time i ordered the degustation menu but the waiter did a mistake and they gave me the short menu. since...the first time the prices are raising raising so high and the service+ quality of food unchanged. last time the maximum price for desserts were 9 euro now 14, the pigeon main course was around 28 euros and now 40!!!!!!!!! the cheapest starter 22 euros... i think that michelin star is not a good reason to start charge so much to customers, unless you only want rich people coming to eat...More

The photos on trip should have warned me, every plate a picture, composed of rather a lot of ingredients in the form of tufts, emulsions, etc. In some plates you had to look very good to find the head ingredient. I rather have less ingredients,...and bigger "chunks" of them. Ok, but what about the taste ? The appetizers (4 of them) were really good. The first course (Marinated bream / Japanese citrus / fregola salad and coriander / coconut and green apple) a really good combination of contrasting flavours. After that, things still were good, but not that surprising anymore. For me, the best course was the cheese ... Cost for the menu = 58€ for 6 courses. In a star-restaurant, that's really cheap. But I think foodcost is quite low, see my remark about finding the head ingredients. Wine pairing comes at 32€. No wines to remember, pity.More
