Restaurant L'Impératif

Classic meets contemporary at hotel restaurant L'Impératif. Located in Le chateau d’Arondeau, a majestic 19th-century castle on the gorgeous Arondeau estate, it’s hard to imagine a better backdrop for your lunch or dinner. The kitchen is led by one of Belgium’s most renowned chefs, Benoît Neusy. It’s no surprise that the restaurant’s cuisine was honoured with multiple awards, including a Michelin star, 3 Gault Millau hoods, and 16/20 Gault Millau points. The elegant and comfortable dining area offers a direct view of the castle’s lake and lush 15-hectare garden. If the weather allows it, you can enjoy your meal on the restaurant’s beautiful and sunny terrace.

Even though he’s one of Belgium’s most prestigious chefs, Benoît Neusy remains to be a tireless worker who’s continuously on the quest for perfection. Instead of choosing the road well-traveled, he keeps challenging his cooking skills. This results in ever-evolving techniques and innovative dishes.
