Been here several times already, time for a review. The restaurant is in an old mansion style place. High ceilings, white painted walls, giving the whole place a very roomy feel. Restaurant, depending on how many people are expected, can be divided in a big room seating around 30 people, and a smaller room seating roughly 15 people. The smaller... More

A colleague had suggested "Kookpunt" as a fine lucnh adress in Hasselt. He proved to be right. We went for the daily lunch at 23.5€, 40.50 € all inclusive (apero, white & red wine, water & coffee). The apéro was a dash of orange liquor, with a dot of gin and Crémant; this kind of mixtures can go horribly wrong,... More

Restaurant Het Kookpunt is really nice restaurant, great ambiance right in the centre of Hasselt. They use to serve surprise menu which were of great taste in combination with delicious wines. Het Kookpunt has moved to a new inflexible concept and service is less friendly and gives guests less attention than before. Our 3 course menu was OK but not... More

this mansion has been nicely decorated for a quiet evening with good food. Friendly staff. Correct food, not a whaw effect, but good. I liked the wine card with a lot of choice for 'wine at a glass'. I appreciated the gazpacho and sea bream.

Nice setting for a business lunch but that's it. Keep it that way. Much to expensive for what you get.

We went here for dinner with some collegues. There was a fixed menu for us because we were with 10 persons. When I told I did not eat meat our waiter suggested to serve fish to me. One moment later another waiter started arguing with the first one in front of us and in the end they told me I... More

There has to be a misunderstanding. All our menu's have the choice between meat and fish, even our most cheap menu and we always ask what our clients prefer. Then we change the knife and fork with the clients who took fish, to check that we did't make a mistake. Our waiters normally never argue and certainly, not in front... More

We selected the complete menu and was good food on the plate (but sometimes doubting the quality of some ingredients). We ordered wine from the nice selection of 'open bottles' which were reasonably priced. Overaal quite nice restaurant, nice setting and atmosphere. Liked very much the pace of the courses and the friendlyness of the staff! Maybe somewhat more expensive... More

I was at the Cookpunt very recently with a group of people and as I said in the title there was a good atmosphere and it was a nice experience.
