Bazel is a picturesque village in the countryside along the river Scheldt, where open polder with beautiful panoramas provides the scenery for long walks or bike rides. On the medieval Church Square – one of the most beautiful in Flanders – is Hofke van Bazel.
The romantic interiors make the luxury suites ideal for private dining. Each suite, designed by the hostess herself, offers something unique: a private terrace or a view of the lovely garden, where you can relax in the summer. Dining at Hofke van Bazel is always pure indulgence, thanks to the huge vegetable garden, the seasonal fare and the passion for culinary excellence.
Outstanding classic cuisine is served with a modern touch and special emphasis on ‘100 percent green gastronomy’. This beautifully situated restaurant is a member of the prestigious Alliance Gastronomique. It was awarded the title ‘Best vegetable restaurant in the Benelux 2017/2018’, and chef Kris De Roy has been admitted to the ‘Mastercooks of Belgium’. The centre of Antwerp is just a 15-minute drive away, or an enjoyable trip by water bus along the river.
Chef and co-owner Kris De Roy is an inspired man, always searching for the finest ingredients for his ‘Cuisine de coeur’ (cooking from the heart). The menu changes with the seasons, with special attention to vegetarian dishes. The exciting, innovative cuisine is at its best when you choose the Degustation-menu. This not only offers you a seasonal selection of artisan produce, but also the latest culinary techniques. On the other hand, classic dishes, such as hare and pheasant, are also on the menu. The restaurant has several richly decorated function rooms. Pre dinner drinks are served in the impressive, glass ceilinged wine cellars.
The restaurant is opened on Wednesday till Sunday. You are welcome to arrive for lunch between 12.00h - 14.00h, and for diner between 19.00h - 21.00h. The restaurant is closed on Monday and Tuesday.
At the rear of Suite & B, you will find a wonderful garden with ornamental pond and fountain.
The village of Bazel is situated in the East Flanders region, near the river Scheldt. Nature Park Scheldeland is nearby. The peace and quiet of the vast polder landscape with its spectacular skies is ideal for long, relaxing walks or bicycle tours.
