Despite the name, this family-owned restaurant is absolutely not a fiasco. Small and intimate, with attentive service, it brings a touch of adventure to an area where, when it comes to cuisine, devotion to tradition is more usual. There's room for just 26 diners in a setting of timber beams and bare brick walls. The menu, handwritten on plates (and the drinks list on empty wine bottles), changes weekly depending on what's fresh at local markets, and seasonally to track Belgian manias such as the spring asparagus crop and the autumn game hunt in the Ardennes. But there are always likely to be items like steak filet with a cognac-and-cream sauce and potato gratin, magret de canard au porto (duck breast in a port-wine sauce) with vegetables of the day and pasta, and locally fished (or farmed) trout.
