    Excellent experience at Icones with a group of business partners! The restaurant staff was really accommodating. The setting is quiet and confortable, ideally located in the European quarter. The food was good, especially the delicious risotto with truffles and mushrooms (approved by our Italian friends!).

    The Food was not very good. Service even worse. Got the wrong food twice. Will not recommend this restaurant


    Dear Randi N, First of all I would like to thank you for the comment you left behind on La Fourchette. We take great importance in learning from the feedback we receive from our guests. I’m sorry to read about your negative experience in our restaurant. The evening you had dinner with us was a particular busy evening and it is true your waiter made a mistake on your order. Following to this mistake the kitchen received a wrong order and you received the wrong items at your table. Unfortunately these mistakes happen sometimes. We were sorry we couldn’t fix the problem straight away, therefore I offered you a compensation that evening. Lately we received a lot of positive feedback on the composition and quality of our menu. We would really appreciate if you could give us some more information about the remarks you had on the quality of our food. This is the only way to learn from these mistakes and make changes for the future. Kind regards Alexander Verhelle F&B Coordinator

    This is one of the best restaurant experiences ever! We’ve reserved a table on a Saturday evening. All staff were extremely gentle and the atmosphere was very cosy. We were seated at the window at the street side. They have a very nice garden, however we couldn’t enjoy it due to the rain. We liked their concept very much. Never seen this before! You can have a 4 course dinner for only 49 euro by choosing the dishes yourself out of 6 starters, 6 main courses and 6 desserts. So my husband and I had together dinner without eating the same thing! This is wonderful because in most restaurant there is a fix menu or you must take both the same menu. The food was excellent! It’s a kind of European cuisine with lots of flavors and a very nice presentation. The wine list is extraordinary… as we had both other dishes, we could choose very nice wines by the glass. And their wines are really adorable! Not a standard wine list, but a special one with for example Belgian wines. Price-Quality one of the best experiences ever
