Restaurant L'Eau Vive

The two Michelin starred L’Eau Vive Restaurant is situated in an old water mill, dating from the 17th century. For many years this restaurant has belonged to the gastronomic aristocracy of Belgium.

"Imagine yourself sitting on a terrace in the greenery, while next to you the water lapses into a river and a charming little waterfall... How romantic! The dining room and the popular table d'hôte of this converted mill (17th century) also enjoy these idyllic scenes. Here you will witness Pierre Résimont's expertise."


"Pierre Résimont's "Le comptoir" is never boring and unites unabatedly his open-minded gastronomy and his hospitality. The recipe is simple: a contemporary ambience, the best products, expertise and competent service."
