Only open for one month and already a success. Don’t try to visit the restaurant without reservation because for the moment it’s already fully booked until March 2015.


Chef Marcelo Ballardin, well known from restaurant Pure C, is completely passionate about cooking.
He has an Italian style with a fresh and spicy Asian touch. His goal is to serve his guest a honest and perfect dish. Every dish looks like a small art piece.
The restaurant has chosen to have only 20 seats., because Marcelo and his business partner Dominik D’hooge try to create a nice and relaxing atmosphere with basic and nature inspired interior. The name of the restaurant OAK comes from  “Back to nature”.




The chef comes sometimes out of his open kitchen to serve some dishing himself. Then he has the opportunity to explains a little bit more about what he prepared for his guests.

During lunch they offer different types of menu. There are 2,3,4 or 5 courses at the rates of 25€, 35€, 45€ and 50€ per person. For dinner there is the 5 courses menu which exist out of 2 starters, 1 main course and 2 desserts.
