In green Limburg you will find plenty of summer bars along the canal, perfect for a refreshing holiday. This hidden gem is Wellen’s Siwel Private Garden.

The original initiatives were revised from castle gardens to lawns, but the finalist was the veritable summer gent’s bar Gazon. The bar plays its culinary origins for the third year in a row in the park of the Kristallijn ice rink. The majestic weeping willows, atmospheric lanterns, and opportunities to play darts or petanque obviously convince the residents of Ghent. Another plus: tapas are more subtle here and Ofyr fires are lit on the weekends. “For the jury visit, we lit them a little early, so we could grill our barbecue snacks in front of them,” explains Principal Jonas Vercruisen.

Piet Huysentruyt (59), television chef and founder of the star restaurant Likoké in southern France

“If all goes well, you’ll get a holiday vibe in a split second. But everyone who knows me a little knows: I’m the food man. Put me in a shed, it’s all good, as long as the dish tastes good. That doesn’t mean it has to be a kitchen.” Classy.When putting tapas on the menu, stick with what you can handle.Meatballs in tomato sauce,patatas bravas,pan con tomate…Make the classics the way they should be.And think about the service.Never underestimate it.The waiter can to visit you or stop her.”

Sepideh Sedaghatnia (38), bartender and owner of Divin by Sepi restaurant in Antwerp

“As a bartender, the drinks menu grabs my attention immediately. The quality of what you get in your glass is more important than the number of drinks on the menu. It may have a few well-executed classics, but I also like to be surprised by one or two of my own creations. A must They are well balanced, so I hope they are thoroughly tested first. Proper snacks are the perfect pairing with a good cocktail. I’m a person who loves to nibbles, so they can definitely impress me with that. I like when there is some variety, so there isn’t the same tapas and nachos in every A place. It shouldn’t be much, but it should be good.”

Jill Beckman (33), food blogger The Messi Chef

“A good summer bar takes me elsewhere: the combination of Spanish festivals and the southern breeze from Provence makes you feel like you’re on a flight. It’s important to have room to breathe, a lot of people are fine, but I don’t like the feeling of Oktoberfest. I also like it when kids think too : Playspace makes a big difference. And I always fall in love with the local worker, until you get to know the village or neighborhood: beer from the area, sandwiches from the nearby bakery, and an artist who can beat the stage.”
