The only Belgian restaurant to hold three Michelin stars, receiving the highest quotation of 19,5/20 in the Gault&Millau guide and ranked number 20 on the list of The Best Chef Awards 2018.

Gastronomic enjoyment at Fleur de Sel in Kasterlee

Our visit to Fleur de Sel in Kasterlee is the perfect proof that word-of-mouth advertising works best. A series of beautiful dishes on Instagram, a lot of good reviews online and one of our acquaintances Jürgen, who has already been there 30 (!) times already, made us put this address on top of our wish list. The fact that the restaurant turned out to be open on Mondays – which is the standard closing day for most restaurants – encouraged us to make a reservation immediately. Let’s just start off the week with an afternoon of gastronomic enjoyment. Just because we can 🙂

Salmon, fennel, pomegranate and snow pea salad
