Amazing fine food in a wonderful environment, with nice Terrace. Quality for us, is the most important thing. More than 250 wines on the wine list.
Meal, experience, staff, ... all very good. The restaurant looks very nice too. Food is delicious. The chef himself also comes to great the guests & is open for a chat - which always is nice & makes you feel important. Staff very friendly, young but efficient & nice.

This restaurant is located by a nice little park, and not far from the very center of the city. Staff were very helpful and patiently translated every single dish for us who can not read French. The food is definitely worth the price and the visit. Just we didn't know that extra plate of the bread cost that much. Still, it is a pleasant visit.

we had a perfect lunch, starting with surprising appetizers served in a very original way. All dishes are little paintings: the clam carpaccio, the succulent beef, the range of après desserts, .... Nice winelist, though very french. The setting is very original, the tables very special.

On our little city trip we came here on recommendation. We indulged in the immediate warm welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The communication between the chef and his clients went so smoothly ..he seemed already to guess which would be the perfect wine or bubbly for the individual taste and the food: just heaven. Small place, small card, just perfect!! We definitely come back!

Superb dining. Absolutely worth mentioning!!!
We celebrated a family event here, and had a fixed meal option, which was adapted to the dietary needs of two of the participants.
The restaurant is run by a couple, and we were geven an excellent service. Beautifully presented dishes, excellent food.
Modern interior, lovely garden for the Summer. The only minus is the location away from the city centre.

Alex Verhoeven & Nathalie de Baenst welcome you at Fleur de Sel, an exclusive restaurant in Kasterlee.
Excellent food, and great service. Innovative menus and food preparation and display by a young chef and his partner who is front of house. The rest of the team are even younger!
These two worked at the 1* Pastorei in Lichtaart before setting up on their own 3 years ago.
The service is attentive and formal in style, matched/complemented by the owners informality in approaching their guests to ensure each one enjoys a superb experience.
We chose the 7-course tasting menu with wine arrangement and a couple of large bottles of sparkling water. The decor, custom-made porcelain, table settings and food presentation are all worthy of a Michelin star or two, and this will not be long coming.
One point for improvement could be the wine/food matching, although apparently this is in progress already.
Our dinner was expensive at 280 Euros for two, so if cost is an issue you might prefer to try the lunch. However the overall experience was worth the cost, with 4 amuses and seven different courses with seven different wines to try. We arrived at 7:30 pm and left after midnight!
We will be back!

The food was good to great (with exception of the dessert), the price was much to expensive (veryvery high for one star). For the first course, on the other hand, the meat was announced as the basis element, but it was only the background of the picture, not the most interesting moment of the food. Also, the wine accompagnement was not enough (for the price); the Grüner Veltliner to sweet; the red mediocre.

Like i mentioned in other critics before it is my believe that the Netherlands is a country that is underestimated on culinary level and deserves a place at the top of the world.
Tonight this restaurant gave me this confirmation again . I opted for a 8 course tasting menu and because i love to taste i asked for 2 extra courses from the carte with they did with pleasure and the exra i paid was very correct . Because i was alone i also asked to adapt the wines with the courses so i could drive safe home and the Somelier did this very well. Each course i tasted a different wine interesting to discover less more kown wines bud the perfect match with te menu and this was very educating for me.
The maitre D O is Mr Bono that seems the read the wishes of the dining guests individual
and besides rocking around the globe he will look for your comfort during your dining experience. The same will happen with the lady of the house the chef s wife who will welcome you at the beginning and with who you will discuss your culinary desires .
About the cuisine of the house well for me it was the reinvention of the classic cuisine but with a modern approach and the individual taste of the chef and that is the strong part of each dish the taste you will discover.
2 stars in my believe is modest for this level.
If you like good food good service well the region Zeeland in the Netherlands is a recommendation i like to share and you will have it in this place as also the restaurant The Kromme Watergang not far away. You will have Two cuisines different styles but top level and great dining experience !!!!
