L'Amandier’s cuisine

Chefs Marc’O and Martin Volkaerts work with honest, fresh and high-quality products, such as honey from the beehives in the restaurant's own garden. At L’Amandier, this father-son team prepares colourful plates with delicate notes of hand-picked flowers, herbs and fruits. On the menu you’ll find refined delights for friendly prices. For lunch, there’s the standard menu and the business lunch menu. For dinner, you can choose between the Pollen menu and the Nectar menu. Food and wine pairing is possible. Expect specialties such as langoustine tartare with cockles and shellfish broth; and Scottish lamb with eggplant.

Genval area

Restaurant L’Amandier is located in Genval, an idyllic municipality in Wallonia, Belgium. The building is set on the shores of Lake Genval. This artificial lake is beautifully surrounded by houses built during the Belle Époque and a popular destination for holiday makers. An ideal place for your afternoon stroll. If you’re in the mood for a city trip, you can visit one of the larger cities in the area: Brussels (23 km), Leuven (35 km), and Namur (47 km).
