We were extremely disappointed. They don't employ enough waiters to serve guests on time. We left hungry after waiting to be served for 40 minutes. None of their staff cares about hygene: they leave dirty dishes on spare terrace tables. They throw dirt on the floor. They never wipe the sticky tables. On top of that their prices are expensive....

Excellent location but slow service and average food. A smile seems to be expensive. No cards accepted, only cash....

While the location is really very good (with a great terrace over the Tervuren lake, with parking facilities), overpriced food and slow service do not match it. A pity!

My wife and I lived in Tervuren for four years. We were American ex-Pats who made Bootjeshuis a weekly stop for most of our time there. The location is wonderful, no matter what time of the year and the food was always excellent. More importantly, the owners and staff always made us feel more than welcome, especially Marcel. With their... More

We visited at lunch time midweek. Pleased they had a stack of highchairs, didn't bat an eyelid at our 1.5 yr old, no problem to bring an extra plate and cutlery for him. The baby change was ok, in the disabled toilet, accessible for babies - unfortunately the summer chair cushions stacked up on the disabled toilet also blocked the... More

The location is very nice, one can take a nice stroll around the beautiful park and lake. The food was correct in quality and presentation. These are the two reasons why the rating is "poor" instead of "horrible". The service was terrible, we were a group of four and they forgot one of our orders. When we politely asked them,... More

This time I went just for a cafe-latte. When I asked the person in the bar a bit of cold milk ( it was so hot that I couldn't drink it), the lady made with her face an expression of being frustrares and upset at me and my friend for asking this. This combines with the fact that last time... More

This place will certainly ruin your day. The setting is beautiful and it is so tempting to end in this nicely decorated restaurant a nice walk along Tervuren Park. However, the service is incredible UNFRIENDLY, waiters are all GRUMPY (we were berated upon arrival for making our reservation by phone with "not enough anticipation" and then for ordering another Coke...

Had we not had time to spare and it was a lovely sunny day we would have walked out. It took 40 minutes to be served 2 coffees and it was not service with a smile.
