Carl Wens

For almost two decades the kitchen of 'De Pastorie' in Lichtaart has been led by cuisinier Carl Wens, who developed his own

personal style. He can rely on an impressive amount of experience. A harmonically balanced style between classical and experimental with here and there a modest link to exotic elements. With Carl one can taste extraordinary creative dishes. The historical building 'De Pastorie' is a classical building from the 17th century, situated in the Belgian Campine village Lichtaart. The building where once lived

a priest, has now been turned into a stylish and cosy gastronomic restaurant. The building is surrounded by a perfectly maintained garden with a magnificent terrace, which has been named Belgium's most beautiful terrace by GaultMillau. In the restaurant, which has been awarded a Michelin star, guests are welcomed affectionately and warmly, according to the rules of the art. Hostess Loes, her team,

Carl Wens and his kitchen team guarantee an elevated culinary experience.
