Apart from the cruising, stopping in lovely places and meeting lots of new and ‘old’ friends along the way ………. there is the food! We both enjoy our food (!) and have found some super restaurants along the way.
Au Gré du vent at Seneffe has to be the highlight! A fairly small one star Michelin restaurant within 20 minute walk from the mooring. We discovered it a few years ago, when Adrian treated me for my birthday, and we finally managed to get a table on Thursday (6th Oct) evening. It was as delightful as we had remembered – excellent food, superb wines and really good staff. We each had the 5 course dinner with flight of wines.
All absolutely delicious – I had meat for the first time in I don’t know how long – and we returned to the boat very very happy!
The next day we continued our journey and had lunch (home made soup and bread) on our upper deck as we came down in the Strepy boatlift!
Our culinary delights this return trip have included:
- Impromptu curry with Amanda and Peter
- Chips at Thieu to go with our dinner
- Au Gre du Vent – 5 courses with wines!
- Lunch on the Strepy boat lift
- Lunch and gauffres in Mons
- And beer and dinner in Peronnes again!
