Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 June 2018

I was traveling alone in Kortrijk and was delighted to find this wine bar, hosted by the welcoming, sincere and knowledgable Giles. He travels to the South of France with his wife to find little-known, very exciting wines, and pairs them with equally thoughtful cheese and charcuterie selections. Ernest is right on the main square, with indoor and outdoor seating, and it just has a wonderful, gentle vibe, backed up with wines and food of tremendous quality. Giles helps you figure out exactly what you'd love to drink, and instinctively knows when you fell like chatting or quietly enjoying your time there. I wish there were a wine bar like this in every town I ever visited.

Allow yourself a glass of finest French wine from France’s less known regions. In this winebar, simply follow the advice of your passionate young host, and try one of the tasty « Plankjes » with best cheese and ham. I guarantee that you will come back.

Wijnboutique Ernest is one of my most favorite places in Kortrijk (been there many times and always happy to come back). I would also like to thank the owner for a very interesting and tasty degustation session he organized last December (the sweet white wine we encountered then was a perfect addition to the Christmas dinner. Hope to attend a new degustation soon=)
Always good wines, relaxing atmosphere, outstanding service.

This was my second visit to see Gilles, who is the owner of wijnboutique ERNEST. I can honestly say that not only are the wines of a very high quality, but the attention to detail, and the trouble that Gilles goes to in presentation and explanation is excellent.
It is a lovely spot on the edge of the square in Kortrijk and I know that if you enjoy wine, Gilles will have a nice one to suit your palate.
We will be returning to Belgium in the near future, and wijnboutique ERNEST will be on the list.
