Since 1883 Hotel Le Baron has been standing proudly at the top of the Waterfalls of Coo. Initially it counted just one storey, but at the beginning of the new century two additional floors were build. The hotel has been owned by one family for 100 years, it was transferred from mother to oldest daughter in three generations. The last daughter, now in her ninties, still visits Le Baron from time to time. With great devotion the family promoted their Hotel Le Baron in the wide surroundings. Even queen Marie-Henriette, the wife of Leopold II, king of Belgium, stayed here around 1890.
During the winter of 2008-2009 the restaurant of the old Hotel Le Baron has been renovated into the cosy brasserie-restaurant of today. The new owners are Dutch, from the southern province of Limburg. Cosiness and quality are key at Le Baron. The door is open to everyone. Do you speak English? French? German? Dutch? or even Greek? That is no problem, at Le Baron you are being welcomed in any of these languages.
You will immediately like the cosy atmosphere in the pub. There's a warm ambiance that is unique for the Ardennes. The beautiful bar, the wooden floor and panelling, the open fire and the many old pictures of Le Baron through out the years create a homely feeling.

We have Jupiler beer on tap as well as the legendary La Chouffe and Leffe Blond. In winter we swap Leffe Blond with Leffe Brown, a beer more suitable to the cold winter time.
