Nestled in the heart of the Belgian Ardennes lies the hamlet Our, taking its name from the little river that flows through it. The village has only some 30 granite houses and the two small hotels of Maxime Collard.
La Table de Maxime is in a renovated manor house. The modern interior combines authentic details harmoniously resulting in a superb balance between classic and modern, which is also reflected in the restaurant’s cuisine. Superb produce and the taste of purity are important to the Michelin-starred cuisine of La Table de Maxime.
A stone’s-throw from La Table de Maxime is Maxime’s other hotel – La Fabrique du pré Maho (the factory on Mr. Maho’s meadow). The modern five-storey building has four rooms built into the hill. An architectonic marvel, full of technical ingenuity. Both hotels are stylish and comfortable starting points to explore the Ardennes.
Maxime Collard gained experience in Les Forges du Pont d’Oye in Habbay la Neuve and as sous chef with Geert van Hecke in De Karmeliet in Bruges. The young chef, born in 1986, returned to his native village to open a hotel and restaurant. The restaurant’s interior is modern with black floors, walls and white table linen. Modern art adorns the walls. The cuisine reflects this combination of classic and contemporary. The chef sources produce locally and creates innovative and modern menus in which the freshest ingredients and the taste of purity have the highest priority.
Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
The terrace offers a lovely view of the tree covered hills surrounding the village.
La Table de Maxime is situated in the village of Our, Paliseul, in the very heart of the Belgian Ardennes. The river Our surrounds the village on two sides. Two arched bridges with finely carved stone give access to this charming village. The old low houses are constructed with local granite and slate roof tiles. The rolling tree covered hills, sheep and cows dominate the typical Ardennes landscape.
