The Wines

The restaurant offers wine or beer pairings, and has an extensive selection of wines, liquors and beers. The sommelier clearly knows his craft and serves the drinks with style.

Our night started with a great Cava, and we enjoyed a satisfying wine pairing arrangement with our menu. We ended the menu with a tasteful Belgian beer (Tripel Geuze), which can also be used as an aperitif. Unfortunately I didn’t take any other detailed notes on the drinks.

The “Belgian Taste Buds” Experience

This was our second visit to restaurant Green, and we felt that the restaurant maintained a very good price/quality ratio. The food, however, was somewhat better the first time as we felt the chef tried to incorporate too much flavors, techniques and ingredients in his dishes this time. Dishes could have been better if less ingredients were used, and if the focus was put on the intensity of the flavors rather than on the amount of flavors & ingredients.

Belgian Taste Buds:

–          Food Buds                                                         7/10

–          Wine Pairing Buds                                          7.5/10

–          Price/Quality Buds                                         7.5/10

–          Service Buds                                                    7.5/10

–          Experience Buds                                            7/10
