La Villa Lorraine


Brussels, Belgium

About La Villa Lorraine

This has remained one of the most famous restaurants in Belgium since the end of WWII and has long influenced the Belgian gastronomic scene. The past ten years have seen a real revival of the restaurant, and recently it has been completely and magnificently revamped. Plus, Yves Mattagne has taken over the kitchen and offers high gastronomic pleasure in terrific surroundings. The place has been packed since re-opening after the lockdown, and is probably now the hotspot for fine dining in Brussels at the moment. Both the wine list of the Villa and the former Sea Grill have been joined, and that creates one of the most impressive list in the country: around 2000 references of wines all over the world, with collections of mature vintages, classical gems, and up-and-coming producers, all served to perfection. It represents what Belgium is about: great wines with everything the world of wine has to offer. There have been changes in the sommelier team ― a new generation is taking over, and that is great news! Dimitri D’Hondt, the newly appointed head sommelier is not even 25 but has a driving passion for everything vinous and will provide you with the best service and top notch pairings. Arthur Amelynck knows the cellar by heart and can help you find anything you would like too
