You enter through a small passage into a beautiful backyard that almost feels like a secret paradise in the middle of the bustling Belgian quarter. It’s full of flowers, old street lamps, wooden benches and barrels and makes you feel like you’re in a small countryside village in France.
There are three separate dining rooms connected by the patio. All of them have a really cozy atmosphere, with beautiful dimmed light, candles and small wildflower bouquets on the tables. However, I always try to get a table in FranzBar.
Belgischer Hof is known for amazing Flammkuchen (tarte flambee), but also serves other delicious French creations, including a selection of fresh fish, and has a menu that changes regularly. I often go for the Flammkuchen (it’s the cheaper option), which they have in unusual variations from smoked fish to duck bacon. The wine menu is extensive and the waiters are there to tell you what goes best with your food.
One thing I especially like about Belgischer Hof is that it’s good on a normal day after work as well as for a fancy, romantic dinner.
