The restaurant is located on a very nice area, by the pond in the park of Tervuren. The food is very good and has high quality standards. Los of Belgian beers to choose. Yet extremely slow: We reserved at 1 pm, seré there on time but only brought the menu 20 min later. After ordering, it took another 30 min... More

When visiting Brussels, take the tram from Montgomery Station to the terminus at Terveuren and enjoy a walk around the lakes in the park. The tram takes you through some splendid suburbs before whisking you through the forest to your destination. The Bootjeshuis or Boathouse is located at the Terveuren village end of the lakes and the outdoor seating has... More

Not many restaurants seem to be open on a Monday or Tuesday night in the Tervuren area. With new comers to the area visiting we took them to the Bootjehuis. We all had meals from the specials menu and they were all delicious! The service and the staff were efficient and friendly and very helpful. It was a beautiful evening... More

I have been here several times. It's a nice place to relax with a drink and some food in a beautiful setting. You don't have to wait too long to be served. It's off course a busy restaurant but there's always a great atmosphere. Go and see it yourself!

If managed well this could be a perfect place. The location couldn't be better: in the park, next to a pond. The perfect summer terrace location. But it's a mess. There's furniture and decoration everywhere; they need to bring in someone with good taste to redecorate it. Service doesn't seem to be very motivated, and the food is very mediocre.... More

I have been here probably more than 10 times now. Whether its just for a drink with friends or a meal with the family and the staff have always delivered with excellent service, we have never had to wait too long to be served. It is a busy restaurant always buzzing with people and a great atmosphere. The food is... More

Belgian restaurants are not known for service... but this place takes the cake... the food is ok, if you get it. I ve been there several times and had to leave due to the complete lack of regard the staff has for its customers. My guess is that its owned by some rich guy who doesn't want the business... Good...

My husband and I visited Tervuren whilst in Brussels on a conference. A short metro ride from Montgomery and a pleasant tram journey on route 44 brings you to Tervuren. We enjoyed a stroll in the sun round the lakes and a fantastic meal at Bootjeshuis. The service was extremely quick, staff were very friendly and it was a very... More

Picture yourself sitting by a pond in a beautiful park surrounded by nature while you enjoy a drink and a delicious meal. That is what you get at Het Bootjeshuis. There are always interesting monthly specials as well as house favorites and traditional Belgian dishes. The restaurant is always busy (reservations are advised when the sun is shining) but the...

We use the Tervuren Boat House a lot. It is great for a coffee (or beer, or glass of wine) after a walk around Tervuren's beautiful lakes, or for a casual lunch or dinner. In summer one can enjoy the superb waterside terrace, at other times of year the interior of the restaurant is equally inviting; the full length windows... More
