Our local suppliers

We draw our inspiration from the neighbouring botanical gardens, this is where our biophilic design comes from. At SERRA we do things naturally and we like to look after our planet as much as we can by offering a healthy and authentic cuisine made from seasonal ingredients from our local partners.

Our partners are so local, we know them by their names! And yet, their concepts, movements, and quality are not only local phenomena.

Cycle farm focuses on agricultural practices that respect the soil and living beings. It’s an urban farm south of Brussels that brings together 3 market gardeners and 3 models growing in Linkebeek.

At the moment, 50% of our vegetables and fruits come from Cycle Farm!


The mission of the BIGH project is to create a network of sustainable aquaponic urban farms in major European cities. Known for its innovative infrastructure and technologies, their first pilot farm in Brussels uses a state-of-the-art aquaponics system where fish, fruit, vegetables, and herbs grow in a zero-waste closed circuit. Bigh recently took over Urbi Leaf, which also happened to be our partner, which produced around 20 varieties of super nutritious microgreens.

Most importantly, it has also brought out an awareness that nothing goes to waste and unused resources can help to create something new and amazing.


Xavier Renotte, with his wife and father, runs this family-run cooperative specialised of honey and its derivatives. Nectar&Co operates in different environments, each offering a honey with unique flavours. The honey from urban hives is floral, while that from the forest is sweet, almost like a syrup. At SERRA, we serve honey according to season and harvest, offering an authentic and varied culinary experience. Nectar & Co is firmly committed to reducing the environmental impact of its activities as much as possible, by implementing specific measures in the most crucial stages of its process. These include reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint, and recycling packaging.
