The good news is that the pleasure of fine cuisine does not have to be confined to ego and pretension. It can also embrace true humility and craftsmanship, without in any way obscuring talent, consistency and, of course, taste.

These words could fit Stéphane Lefebvre´s personality, a man of convictions and loyalty. Far from the glitz and glamour, the man relies on a foundation that few live on: his restaurant is always full.

It was in 2008 that Stéphane Lefebvre put down his bags and knives in a pretty villa just outside Jodoigne. Stéphane has been in the air for a long time, and in the past he has put this mythical address, the Bistro du Mail in Ixelles, back on the gastronomic map, winning successively a Bib Gourmand and a star in the red guide.

The call of the native land being the strongest, Stéphane then joined the mother country to create his own gourmet house. A well-established address, still very popular and which has grown over the years.

Michelin-starred since 2014, Stéphane Lefebvre has an evolving approach to his culinary approach and shares with his guests his passion for fine and generous seasonal cuisine; a cuisine that he wants to be creative and clean, built on local products and inspired by freshness, to best set plates with noble virtues devoid of artifice.

In addition to the obviousness of the beautiful products that he makes evolve in a menu that progresses every two months, we feel the Chef´s mastery in marked flavors and absolute constancy. In the dining room, it is Virginie Charlier who gives rhythm with efficiency and precision to a service that is intended to be as close as possible to the care of a clientele that has been in tune for ages and that finds at Les Petits Oignons its good account in additions with a magnificent price-pleasure ratio.
