Hof van Cleve still Gault&Millau’s fave restaurant
Peter Goossens’ Hof van Cleve restaurant in Kruishoutem has tied with Brussels’ Bon-Bon as the best restaurant in the country in the new Gault&Millau
Hof van Cleve isn’t alone at number one, however: Chef Christophe Hardiquest’s Bon-Bon in Brussels ties for the top spot with the same score. Best Sommelier also went to Hof van Cleve; Mathieu Vanneste has been with the restaurant for less than two years.
Other top scorers in Belgium came as no surprise, either: Kobe Desramaults’ In De Wulf received 18.5 points, while Geert Van Hecke’s De Karmeliet in Bruges, which, like Hof van Cleve has three Michelin stars, pulled down 17 points.
