    A perfect restaurant to enjoy a diner with friends, you can have an intro drink on the second level, called "Baraque de Luxe" - a cocktail and cigar Bar - order your menu and the waiter will keep you informed when diner is ready.

    Favorite Dish: A typical french menu, highlighted with some topics of the season, oister bar-lobster or typical belgian food like stowed meat with brussels sprout combined with belgian endive, just excellent.

    't Fornuizeke 't Fornuizeke A good piece of meat and B.sprouts and endive

    Carnival in Belgium - yes. The City Aalst near Bxl might be the most famous one in Flanders.
    Ostend maybe on second place, but i never knew that even a small town like Merelbeke, close
    to Gent has a Carnival Parade and believe me - i and my Canon had a great Sunday afternoon.
    Aalst is in february - Merelbeke in march.

    It is not a trap - but a nice remembrance on the snowfall by the end of feb 2004.
    People from the furniture factory "Perfecta" must have build this nice snowman - with a little help of Coca Cola buttons.
