restaurant review #282 – ‘t Vijfde Seizoen is a gastronomic restaurant in Aalter (between Bruges and Ghent). This literally translates as ‘the fifth season’. There is always a vegetarian menu standardly available, which can be veganised upon request (it’s advised to ask it in advance, and we did when making the reservation).
I already posted a review of a visit to ‘t Vijfde Seizoen in 2018 here.
This review is from a visit to ‘t Vijfde Seizoen in February 2020, just before the lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic started.
Upon making the reservation for dinner, the restaurant also asked us to notify them by noon whether we choose the 4-course or 5-course menu. We went for the latter which is 70 euro per person.
These appetizers came with our drinks (we had an alcohol free cocktail, 8€): tofucroquette, paprika coulis, pomegranate quinoa butternut, and courgette soup.
Here is a summarised list of the courses we were served (many more ingredients were named when they were served, but I couldn’t remember all of them 😉
- Sevviche with red beet, puffed quinoa, leche de Tigre, pepper
- crispy potato, potato cauliflower muslin, ragout king fungus
- compote granny, creme cashew nuts, and red cabbage
- Winter stew with vegetables, crispy savoi cabbage
- Rice pudding with white chocolate, sorbet, cake
I did not take any photos of the interior, nor the toilet this time (it was spotlesssly clean), you can see those in the previous review here. ‘t Vijfde Seizoen is completely wheelchair accessible, with an accessible toilet too.
All in all: we had a fabulous dinner. Of all our restaurant experiences (gastronomic level), this one certainly ranks as one of the best. We definitely want to visit again 🙂
Note: This review is from a visit before the lockdown due to COVID, so please be aware that the setting, menu, etc may have changed meanwhile.
