At the end of the road, the beautiful auberge.
You have to go up there, on the heights of Dinant la Mosane, to arrive somewhere else; somewhere else that lulls and transports you to one of the most beautiful villages in Wallonia. It is also necessary to take time to admire, while passing, the sumptuous castle-farm which shelters the so pretty village of Falaën.
It is there, at the bend of a road that one could imagine to have been born from the brush of an artist, that the Fermette is nestled. The establishment is not new, it was first opened more than 40 years ago. The current owner-couple must not have been in the world that this rustic house, like a beautiful inn with its local stones and its ivy covering the facade, was already delighting the gourmets of the area and a little further.
Sarah Bohet and Michaël Vancraeynest took over the business more than fifteen years ago, and they have done so in a beautiful way.
By intelligently preserving the essential pieces that made the good days of the house, like the unstoppable wood-fired Côte à l'Os. By also adding their malignant grain of salt translated by some plates of more modern flights of fancy but always imposed by the rule of the market.
Recently, the Effiloché of crab, fennel cream and pastis, marsh beans, the Grosse crevette tigrée, red beet and white balsamic, raspberry and hibiscus and the Coq des Prés, eggplant and romanesco, orange and vanilla butter, black rice made up a menu with a jubilant price/pleasure ratio.
An address where simplicity and authenticity are the rule, a favorite on repeat.
