Dining at Machweo

Dining at Machweo is a delight. In 2006, Belgian chef Axel Janssens started to create the “Onsea House” style: a fusion of what he learned in the Michelin starred restaurants during his career combined with local influences and ingredients. Five years later, in 2011, the restaurant moved to its current location at Machweo.

The food and service is best described as Brasserie style with an African touch. Mixing the best of both worlds, the traditional French cuisine and the wonderful creativity and inspiration of this continent. The pure taste and flavours of the freshest ingredients are dressed and presented in the best way: elegant and contemporary. And of course everything is home made including the bread and the ice-cream.
