What a great experience! The atmosphere is sober but stylish and pure, very clean. The welcoming was very professional. The waiters where aware, polite, helpful and perfectly dedicated. The food was very good, rafined, tasty and savourous. The chef managed the timing and cooking to an unexpected perfection and delight. The barman even made us personalised cocktails that where art...

I went for an afterwork drink to the XII and then stayed for dinner. Lovely fresh food and excellent service! I liked it so much that I got back the other day for a business lunch: Fine selection of special dishes for lunch and very friendly staff. I enjoyed it a lot and will go back. :-)

I had a dinner at the hotel I was staying at as I wanted a quick dinner. I ordered Caesar Salad with Scampis and a Cafe Latte. It took a while and they brought me a Caesar Salad with Chicken. I had had enough chicken for the day and I asked it to be changed. They brought Caesar Salad with... More

I recently visited the Twelve restaurant for a business lunch with colleagues. It is ideally located near the European institutions and ideal for a business lunch. The food was very good and what I really appreciated was the space you have in between the tables. Sometimes in restaurants, you feel like you are too close to the other tables and... More

The restaurant area is modern, I love the interior and its design. The food and drink selection is very varied, you can always find something what pleases your taste. And if you are looking for an extraordinary cocktail experience, ask the personal at the bar to prepare something for you, you won´t regret it. They are a real cocktail masters.... More

Let's start by saying the food was good. Not exceptional, but very decent. But the waiter was really not giving us any attention. If the restaurant had been somewhat busy, I'd have understood, but we were basically the only clients. Service was very slow and basic. Not what you expect from a hotel of this caliber. Beer is really overpriced... More

Classical business (mass) restaurant. I'm not a fan of the standard deco (a bit on the cheap side), the architecture sometimes challenges your sense of orientation but if you go there for a business meeting it's fine, food is fair and honest.

The Thon Hotel was great but their breakfast buffet at the Twelve was unexpectedly disappointing. I came one morning at 930 and all the served food seemed to be overcooked or dried out. No one cleaned our table neither. I would give an extra thought when I decide to visit once again.
