We never ate something this badly cooked in a restaurant.
My girlfriend and I took one of their menus. Portions where very small. The pappillot of salmon gave a very small piece with almost no vegetables. Presentation was a piece of aluminium containing the small piece of fish with three very small half potatoes next to it. We each had at least one potatoe with black dots on it.
The fish tasted like pepper and almost nothing else. For dessert we took a rhubarb pie that could have been made better by your eight year old niece.
We asked extra bread to have enough after a three dish menu! My girlfriend could not finish the fish because it was so untasteful and gave her stomach aches.
Most important deception was the service.
They did not take the time to let us choose a pre-dinner drink so in the end we just choose to skip it. We where under the impression that they wanted to get us out fast.
During the meal one of the waiters already removed my plate while my girlfriend was still eating.
A few minutes later they took her plate from under her nose while she took the last bite. With that the waiters took her full glass of water with them after we informed them that we did not wish to take a coffee, leaving my empty glass of water behind.
During the meal one of the waiters came and ask us what we had consumed so far regarding drinks. They forgot.
In general they where not very friendly. When asking a question to the older waiter when paying we don't know if he simply did not hear us or if he ignored us. When asking a question he was clearly not amused.

Because it is such a special place on multiple locations you will find this review twice under different headings, also because it was a mixed experience as you learn when Reading further.
Maxime Collard created a Michel star restaurant in Our , little village close to Paliseul and a hotel in same building with six rooms. But in recent years expanded this with a further place to stay, la fabrique with two rooms, a suite and a duplex and last year build a huge complex les terrases de l’our with 14 rooms and a brasserie. He also has the Jardins de Maxime, but these rooms are outside the village and we did not visit them so no comments on then.
We booked for our wedding anniversary the suite witch is situated inside the fabrique. Very lovely building nice and quiet beside the water running trough the village. On the other bank of same river is the new building for the terrasses situated, we also had to move their for our breakfast, just crossing a wooden bridge.
Those two building are some 300 meters away from the Table de Maxime. Normally a little walk but with bad weather and the village road under construction works made it a bit more of an effort than it should be. Be also aware that our building has no lift, so stairs have to be done, if not able inform yourself well in advance !
The downside of our weekend was the menu in the brasserie terrasses de l’our. Our gastronomic weekend included a 3 cours menu there and the second night a 5 cours in the table de maxime. The three course menu was a choise menu between two starters, two mains and two desserts. The quality of the food was below average. We did have different main courses and the meat (veal) was tasteless and the fish (red mullet) was just awfull. The first and dessert were nothing special either. So we were left very much confused because this brasserie received very good comments before.
The breakfast served in the same building for us was a buffet. Only the coffee is served at the table. Apperantl y only the guests in the table are allowed to eat their breakfast there and enjoy it to be served to them. It would have been nice to compare things, but not to be.
We were a bit afraid of the second evening meal but that turned out to be a succes. Very nice service, fluent at the table and very good dishes with lots of flavor. Completely the opposite from the day before. The according wines were also very good. I gave the table full marks altough a few minor details disturbed me, mainly the fact that they do leave the emptly plates after each course much to long on the table. It’s not so nice to stare at an empty plate often for more than 15/20 minutes. Also we once had to ask our water to be refilled, sometimes the wines didn’t came as soon as the should have and our neighbours run out of bread once, but as i told once at the table all was dealt with very professionally.
Finally a little dissapointement towards the management. If a couple let’s you know they spent there wedding anniversary there : would it be to much to congratulate the couple with this occasion ? I don’t need a free bottle of whatever but just a friendly word towards it would made the world of difference. A personal approach will always make your guests want to return sooner than i plan now.

The only thing gastronomic about this place is the nice wording on the menu. The "emulsion" accompanying the egg starter felt more like a cream soup. I ordered my beef medium-rare but received it well-done. The whole place felt a bit like a factory: we arrived at exactly 7pm and were the very first table to order. By 7:15pm about 15 other groups had arrived. By 7:45pm we were still waiting for our starters. The waiters were quite nice, but the superintendent looked like he'd been forced to work that evening. We felt we paid too much for what we got (especially when compared to some other restaurants we tried in the region). We will not return.

A little pricey but affordable for what you get. Free parking. After your meal walk around the restaurant and the other buildings. They are beautiful, well kept and the gardening is nice. Don't miss the beautiful views.

We chose this restaurant on a weekend trip to the Ardennes based on the reviews on tripadvisor but were rather deceived. A menu that is being advertised at 37 euro actually cost us 42 euro because they charge 3 euro extra for a sauce (which I didnt even ask for) and then 2 euro extra if you took the cheese platter as a dessert. But the quantity of the cheese is rather small so I really do not see the point in charging extra for that. Also I have had house wine in Brussels for much less than what we paid for it here. The creme brulee was also being advertised as containing pears but you could barely taster pear in it. The service was not efficient as they brought us 2 times the plates from another order. So for a restaurant in the countryside I would have expected that at least the prices were lower than in the capital of Belgium.

Restaurant Le Foru is located in a small isolated village several miles from Bouillon. That said, it is beautifully illuminated whilst inside the slated rock walls provide a unique environment and one which excudes the fine dining we enjoyed. The husband and wife owners gave us excellent service even if the preparation time seemed a little over long. Nevertheless, their hospitality and most memorable cuisine made it a night to remember. Our dishes were preceded by tasteful finger pick-ups. Our meal comprised a white tender mouth watering fish and a succulent beef steak. This is a restaurant not to be missed if you are in the Bouillon region.

Cela fait quelques années déjà que nous connaissons ce restaurant et c'est à chaque fois un plaisir d'y retourner lorsque nous passons dans la région ! Chaque visite se solde par le même résumé : "Wawww !"
Toujours une très grande réussite, des plats exceptionnels venant des producteurs locaux et du jardin du patron, un service irréprochable, une ambiance cosy, un cadre typique ardennais... Tout est réuni pour passer une soirée formidable, et, cerise sur le gâteau, tout cela à un prix très abordable !
N'hésitez pas une seconde à leur rendre visite, mais n'oubliez surtout pas de réserver à l'avance !

What a great discovery that this charming inn colored by the patina of time ... The kindness of patrons only matched the quality of his table ... A nice address

Dinning there seemed very formal but was still very relaxed. Cosy restaurant with style, service was prompt and friendly. You can find a lot more cheaper places to eat in Bouillon, but if you want some excellent food, eat there, you get what you pay for and its worth it! Would hope to eat there again.

After finishing our dinner, manager decided to overcharged us with starters we didn't order. Unfriendly, mean and unrespectful talk to us, grabbing personal belongigns and threating to don't give them back until we pay those starters. Awful situation, throwing money at us last minute before leaving...for this individual, the manager, I have to write this review. We were satisfied with the food, but no one needs to be treated this way, I'm sorry for the restaurant and town, I'm sure lovely place to visit, but wont recommend to stop here ever again.
