This restaurant- bar is at the top of the Citadelle offering fantastic views. However the service was slow, but this gave the opportunity to see the amazing ice creams being served at other tables. After two beers we used the smallest room! This took me back in time to the 1960's and the public convenience in the local village, the room was large with urinals to the right (open plan) and ladies cubicles to the left. There was a terrible stink, limited paper in the dispenser but loads on the floor, a seat that could not be sat on. On leaving the cubicle there was 1 hand basin for all with no soap or method of drying your hands. As I left this abomination to the nose, within two or three steps, without going through a door, I passed two chest freezers and an employee getting out food from one. Outside my husband said to me 'Remind me not to eat here' I agreed, 'Eat where they keep the food freezers in the very unhyginic loos'
Harry Potter and the Ritz all in one. Walk down a narrow 'Harry Potter' style alley, find a double bow fronted almost Georgian bakery, walk in side to a another world. A beautiful tea shop, cloth covered tables, waitress service - good waitress service. Enjoy a wide selection of cakes.
Favorite Dish: Trio of chocolates deserts
Excellent food; After reviews on this site we went to this restaurant and were not disappointed. The owner, an Indian from Croydon (close to my home town) was very friendly, the service was good and we are going back next week for a Special event evening including Indian dancers.
Favorite Dish: Mixed grill with a selection of authentic Indian dishes.
The Dumont Patisserie does not only sell beautiful Cake's, but it is also a Tea-room where you can sit and enjoy yourselve's.
The selection was so good, that it was very hard to make a choice!
Very nice cake's, could have gone back for more if I wasn't so full!
Can recommend, check out the mouth watering photo's of what was available in the Patisserie!
This place had an nice outdoor area and looked popular with locals inside. However, what I thought were Wallonian accents eventually gave way to a large table of Italians having what looked like a tourist lunch! The atmosphere was a bit worn and dated aura about it. The combo Asian waitresses had an annoying habit of walking indoors and out like they were on a fashion runway- full heels clicking at a furious rate while the Matronesse looked a bit intimidating yet disinterested at the same time.
I would have picked a better place but I just was too tired!
Favorite Dish: Food was average.
Galler is a Belgian brand of chocolate.
An excellent one if you ask me , but that is a
matter of taste. So if I found out they had a
degustation room in Namur I wanted to visit
it. It is nicely decorated and they are specialized
in chocolat and tea. They also serve a menu
with cacao in it...etc.
What I found strange is that they put up signs
that it is forbidden to smoke since it spoils
the unique and fine aroma's of chocolate and tea
(which it true) but themselves serve really smelly
fish. Bwééééék. I was a bit annoyed and
disgusted by something stupid like that.
Excellent coffee - great pralines , very nice
chocolate pastry....but a bit too expensive for
the delivered goods.
(oh , I didn't liked the pastry with white
chocolate and pear either. )
This is a wonderful place, to be precise, IT IS HEAVEN (for those who love chocolate, which I don't!!).
It is a restaurant and at the same time a CHOCOLATE TASTING ROOM.....
They have a CHOCOLATE ROOM PASSION "excursion" for you.........ohhh, you must go here!!
Already curious??? see the website, or email them......
A wet night so we didn't stray far from our hotel, found this close by, and had a very good curry!
On our travels we often have an Indian, and often someone in the restaurant used to live in the UK, no exception here, Croydon!!
Friendly place with good food, try it.
Everyone seats at the same table!
In this guest table you will seat at the same table than other ones. This is a unique occasion to meet with local people.
They propose a unique menu (but difficult person will be offered a suppliant dish)? this changes on a weekly bases. The quality is more than affordable such as the prices
Not to miss!
You can refer to their website for the menu and the prices!
We found it on a menu in a restaurant :
Les petit grises - it was an entree.
Literally it means 'the little grey ones'.
It made us think it were north sea chrimps.
But served in a restaurant over here?
It is the local version of escargots.
They taste slightly different then the French
ones and I loved how they were served.
In a creamy white sauce with a lot of garlic
on a tin slice of potato with some vegetables
I loved it.
This is the adress where they breed them
Escargots petit gris de Namur
Rue du tilleul 14
We passed by this restaurant when we were strolling in the streets of the city. We like to eat and try new restaurants and our intuition "told" us to try it once. So, a few months later I booked a table and we didn't regret it. It was a very pleasant evening : warm welcome, a bit of music in the air, good service and very good food ! It was delicious.
Friendly ambience, nice little place within archs that looks medieval. The people is friendly and the food is delicious. You have great value dishes and 1L wine almost for nothing.
Favorite Dish: I went there with friends, we were 10. We all took a different pizza, and we all loved it. I took a seafood pizza, it was simply delicious.
I recommend La Cava to all that want's to eat a good pizza in a cool ambience. They serve also Pasta.
2001 is the year of Flavor in Brussels and in the Ardennes (Wallonia).
Where you have gastronomy, you also have restaurants. There are countles restaurants ranging from small inns where regional dishes can be enjoyed, charming restaurants nestling in the heart of the most neautiful countryside and tables with an excellent reputation...
The Walloon cuisine is very rich.
- The Flamiche (Leek Tart),
- Escaveche (fish),
- Moccha coffee and Bietrume (caramels made in Namur),
- Foie gras (made in Upigny),
- Avisances (sausage and flaky pastry),
- Strawberries of Wepion,
- Dinant couque (pastry very hard : take care of your teeth).
Namur has plenty of cafes, restaurants and of course bakeries, where you can try the specialties like croissants.
Just walk around and for sure you will find yourself in front of a big irresistible vitrine... Enjoy it!
