Restaurant Culinair

In the Belgian town of Lauwe hides a gastronomic gem: restaurant Culinair. This fine-dining location is run by owner and chef Steven Dehaeze and his spouse, sommelier Lisa Sibilla. Looking out over the lush, green garden, you can enjoy chef Steven’s innovative cooking skills from the terrace. During colder months, you can dine in the elegantly decorated dining room with light wooden floors, contemporary art, and blue accents. Thanks to the open kitchen and plasma TV which provides you with a live image from this cooking area, you can observe the chef in full action from each corner of the restaurant. If you’re not ready to leave after lunch or dinner, you can spend the night at the family’s extremely inviting B&B: an ultramodern white villa with a swimming pool and patio.

Steven Dehaeze
JRE Jeunes Restaurateurs

After studying at the Ter Groene Poorte Hotel School, chef Steven Dehaeze lost his heart to hospitality and gastronomy. In his very own restaurant, Culinair, he beautifully showcases his love of experimenting with new products and cooking styles.

Culinair’s cuisine

The restaurant’s menu truly reflects chef Steven’s artistry. He works with seasonal products, locally-grown ingredients, and regional suppliers. The fresh herbs and edible flowers come from the chef’s own garden, while the cheese wagon presents locally-produced cheeses from the region, such as “Old Groendal” from nearby cheese farm 't Groendal. Steven’s dishes are complemented by a lovely wine list, carefully selected by sommelier Lisa Sibilla. Restaurant Culinair also organizes special events, such as cooking demonstrations and truffle theme nights. During summer, the restaurant offers a special lobster menu.

Lauwe area

This inn is conveniently located in the town of Lauwe, in West Flanders province. Here, you’re just 5.5 kilometers away from the city of Kortrijk and its many museums, historic churches, and modern architectural highlights. The cities of Rijsel and Ieper are also within reach (30 minutes by car). Lauwe itself is the perfect starting point if you want to go cycling or hiking, as cycling routes and recreation area Preshoekbos are just around the corner.

That same year, their villa was named the best scoring B&B in the Belgian TV contest "Met Vier in Bed".Located right next to the restaurant, B&B Culinair offers 3 guest rooms.
