    A touch of tradition with a zest of daring. Enough to delight the taste buds of adventurers attached to ancestral values. Very pleasant discovery

    As always - the food was absolutely outstanding, the service polite and competent. I can fully recommend this restaurant - not only as a treat, but also as a place that can be made as a restaurant where one returns happily to enjoy constantly outstanding and special food.

    Excellent cuisine. French modern cuisine with an asian twist - fusion at its best.

    Excellent! Great service by both sommelier, chef and waiter as well. The dishes was superb with a great wine pairing. This compared to the realatively cheap price makes it invaluable. I would love to come here again and hope that they get a michelin star in the near future!

    We had a great evening at Stirwen, and enjoyed very much the care from the gentlemen waiter and the chef. I thought the wine pairing can consider more daring wines but this is just my personal taste. Will certainly recommend Stirwen.

    Service and food were exceptional. I would definitely recommend coining to Stirwen if you are in Brussels. It was awesome to see the chef come out for some of the dishes and interact with the guests.

    Excellent service. Pleasant environment. High quality food with fresh ingredients, but not Michelin star level work. No wow dishes. Therefore, price to value a little on the expensive side. Good French-focused wine list.

    A very good experience. Tried the 5 course meal and the accompanying wines and I have been impressed. The sashimi was excellent, the fish very fresh and tasty. The risotto very well cooked and the asparagus accompanying it very juicy. The first main poultry very tasteful and the crust well executed. The foi gras very juicy but the skin could be a tad more crispy. Still very tasty. And a very appropriate and refreshing desert based on citrus. The wine selection very appropriate for each dish. The stuff very friendly. A bit expensive of course but no regrets, the experience was unique. I recommend it one hundred percent.
