Le Temps des Cerises
A typical “cuisine du terroir” restaurant, a tiny place with a lovely warm atmosphere which is definitely a contrast from the neighborhood’s brasseries. Sit down and look around, discover the tribute to the local celebrities and other curiosities proudly exhibited by the owner. Sweetbread with morels or oven roasted knuckle of ham grated with mustard sauce, let yourself be tempted by a tasty traditional dish.
The team’s favourite one : the ramen’s palace (amen), to consume with closed eyes (except that opening them is more practical). A true gustatory and affordable journey. Whether you choose chicken, pork or duck and its miso or paitan in broth, you’ll probably go back anyway.
In an authentic and charming setting, VIVO invites you to discover its fusion cuisine with classical, Asian or Mediterranean inspirations.
Best brasserie of Namur, chic atmosphere “à la française” to pronounce with the accent of Namur (not quite the same 😉 It’s a safe bet to taste classical brasserie dishes served by waiters dressed in smart costumes. The high ceilings, decorative moldings and chandeliers will make you forget where you are the time of a meal. The place is also a good location for a drink in the evening.
The place to be for the real belgian fries! Crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside. Try out the “mitraillette” if you dare or the fries with “sauce riche”, pretty heavy shit! You might bump into the owner’s son carrying a basin full of potatoes just peeled by his mother. Authentic “fritkot” Gaby is one of the last ones to cut their own potatoes by hand!
