Located in a town between Antwerp and Brussels.
They do foodpairing with Belgian beers.
The quality of the food is really good. I loved my three course diner. First visit the beer selection was rather selected (04/2013) but last time (12/2014) they had some less known beers.
Service was very friendly (second time I visited it was worse...), fluent and with a good timing. Nice explanation about the beers.
Maybe it was because of the early hour (5pm, so before real evening service) but it really bothered me that personel was constantly walking through the restaurant with supplies for the kitchen or whatsoever.
Interior is beautiful, tight modern, spacious. The prices are good for Belgium, surely for an evening service.
It’s a lovely place with nice food for correct prices.

Forget the Grand Cabaret hype, this is the place to go nowadays when it comes to fine cuisine paired with nice beers. But let’s start at the beginning. This place between Antwerp en Brussels has a really nice, cosy, modern interior. We went there on a tuesday evening and the place was almost completly booked. The menu contains some really nice interesting stuff, all of them with a beer recommended. The beer selection isn’t overly impressive, but very decent with a few locals, a gueuze, etc.
The food is really awesome. I had the pasta with coquilles, but the the burger, goat cheese and steak tartaar were also succulent. For dessert you could choose between a lot of sweets and cheeses selected by Van Tricht.
Overall, a great experience, highly recommended and I’ll gladly go back ASAP!
