The restaurant’s name was inspired by its location on the Korenlei, where the grain quays used to be, and by the fact that it was installed in a former 16th -century merchant’s house. The interior reflects the atmosphere of a classic merchant’s house, interspersed with modern details and a design that meets contemporary global culture’s needs.
Guests of the restaurant are not served in one big dining room, but rather in 4 smaller separated rooms, each with its own character, which creates an intimate atmosphere, comparable with a family setting. Moreover, these separate rooms are the ideal scene for undisturbed discussions with a small group, both privately and businesswise. The rooms that are not adjacent to the water provide a nice view on the chef in his kitchen.
Our chef Matthias Van Acker (b. 1985) young, dynamic with a great passion for cooking.
Matthias studied at the famous hotel school Ter Groene Poorte, worked in prestigious Belgian restaurants which include De Lijsterbes, Herbert Robbrecht, Gastronomy Jeroen Storme and highly respected brasseries such as Belga Queen. His cuisine can be described as ‘contemporary Belgian’: modern, fresh, with vibrant details and eclectic elements on a background of local specialties and ingredients.
Lunchtime offers a 2-course business menu including wine and coffee (38€) and also à la carte. For dinner there is a wide range of à la carte dishes. The wine card, which was carefully composed by the management and the experts of “Les Grains Nobles”, offers an interesting mix of old and new world wines.
