Avoid the touristic restaurants and certainly have dinner at ‘my’ places.
I just want to be sure you don’t fall into a ‘tourist trap’.
Yes, I did try them out … ALL!
Fancy (make your reservation upfront!)
Dim Dining – Vrijdagmarkt 7 (Michelin star)
The best Asian restaurant ever ever ever!
It will be an experience you will never forget. My number 1! Make sure you take the Saké pairing.
Het Fornuis – Leeuwenstraat 2 (Michelin star)
For years and years the best French classical cuisine. No menu, the chef will explain the dishes at your table.

Next to the city hall, you can eat excellent Belgian dishes.
Try the pig cheecks.
