Six ephemeral restaurants to savour the Ardennes winter

They say that pleasure is ephemeral. So don't hold back on yours this winter!

From November to January, these six ephemeral restaurants will offer you unusual, warm, and above all, gourmet moments. On the menu: fondues, raclettes, a ‘fireside’ atmosphere and conviviality aplenty. A treat for the eyes as well as the stomach...

Le Quai Son in La Roche-en-Ardenne


Come and soak up the atmosphere of mountain pastures in an authentic Savoyard hut along the River Ourthe, with a breathtaking view of La Roche Castle. Enjoy a tasty regional raclette from the Ambly (Nassogne) cheese dairy or a Savoyard fondue accompanied by a Lupulus or a Chouffe beer. The height of pleasure!


Les Serres d'Hiver in Gesves (Namur)


Just like a glass palace, the magnificent greenhouses of the Domaine de Béronsart welcome you under the sky in a warm and magical atmosphere. To enjoy various Savoyard fondues (with Houppe beer, boletus mushrooms, etc.), croziflettes and grilled entrecôtes.


Le Refuge de L'écurie d'en bas in Libin


Fancy some all-you-can-eat raclette? If so, join us at the table in the barn. Originally, this impressive (9.5m high beams) and beautifully restored barn housed the animals of the neighbouring farm. A must: ‘Candlelit Thursdays’, for an enchanting gourmet experience among the candlelit tables.



Linsensé, Le Chapiteau de la Famenne in Marche-en-Famenne


An authentic pop-up marquee! Decorated in an alpine chalet style complete with an open fire in the centre. And a menu that’s a real treat for the taste buds: foie gras as a starter, real Savoyard raclette, as well as fillet of deer, beef carpaccio, oysters and salmon. An institution in the gastronomic landscape of Marche!
