Always a great atmosphere and ambiance in Restaurant Fabuleux with Johan as a more than great cook and a charming and hospitable Paul as host. The cheerful and hospitable service at the table makes it all complete!

Thank you so much for your unhospitable approach! After taking a seat on the terrace (where various people were enjoying a drink), I went to the restroom. Or actually, tried to. The waiter stopped me, asked me if we had dinner, denied access and wished...me a pleasant evening. Not quite “Fabuleux”. One recommendation: if you want to experience true hospitality, go to Vin’x across the street! We loved the approach of the owner there and had a “Fabuleux” time ;)More

Indeed what a fabulous restaurant, with each course in the 5 course surprise menu a delight with excellent wine pairing. There was no fuss about combining a vegetarian and a meat lover, just as there was no fuss when somehow the reservation was cancelled after...having been confirmed by “The Fork”. My advice when in Den Bosch make time for this restaurant but make the reservation directly, so as to avoid a potential disappointment. Staff were friendly & professional, with “Paul the wine guy” making it a very special evening for both of usMore

During Covid-19 we tried the take home menu and it was really good. A simple but tasteful menu of 4 courses where needed a simple and slow heating process. Warmly recommended.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated and furnished. The tables are not too close to each other, so you can talk at a normal level. From the moment you enter you get the never ending attention from the staff. All the food ordered was very nicely...presented and of excellent quality and taste. It is not a cheap restaurant, but well worth the price.More

Good food and excellent service. The waiter/ wine advisor did a great job combining his wine suggestions with our courses. We will go again!

A truly outstanding culinary experience. Dinner here with friends certainly does not fall into the cheap eats category but you do get great value in terms of the quality and presentation of the cuisine here. Menu choices are from a small a la carte option...or a range of Chef's surprise menus ranging from 3 courses to 7 starting at 45 euros for three. We chose to run with 5 courses and each was indeed a fantastic surprise - wonderful creativity & flavours ensured it was an excellent food journey. The co-owner / Sommelier was a charming and amusing host but one who also knows his craft and we also went with the wine pairing which proved to be another great decision tasting wines from regions never before and each wine better than the last. Splash out and enjoy - Worthy of a Michelin star!More

Lovely 5 course surprise summer menu with stellar and perfectly matching wines. The waiter / wine advisor introduced each of the courses and the wines served with them knowledgeably and interestingly. He recommended “funky” wines, as he told us :) . Must say those wines...were to the point!More

We enjoyed a very fine five course surprise menu here. The service was impeccable, surroundings are lovely and the food was both good to eat and very, very beautiful to look at. We asked for the wine pairing to go with the meal and were...impressed with the wines that were offered, wines from Italy, Spain, Portugal ... We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and thought it was extremely good value. And you need to book.More

They always ask about food preferences as meals are shaped to suit the guest's wishes. But you can always ask at the time of booking to make sure. I would be surprised if they didn't cater to your wishes.

The best way at Fabuleux is to ask for the "surprise" menu and say you do not want mushrooms. They will prepare a lovely meal. I hope you enjoy Den Bosch as much as we did.
