Location is not everything

No doubt the location is just perfect. At the edge of the parc infront of the pond. Sitting outside or inside is really nice. The portions of the food is rather large. Here I would prefer a smaller portion and focus on the quality and taste. Compare to the asking prices. It would be nice to... read more

Have been here a few times for drinks on the terrace - a perfect spot in warm weather. Had dinner here once also inside and the food was very nice plus you can still appreciate the lovely view.

It's such a shame that the service was that bad, because it is a very beautiful location... Unfriendliness of waiter ruined our experience

The view is awesome, right on the Tervuren lake, but the staff lacks friendliness, or are they understaffed? The food is good but a bit expensive for what it is

Set on the bank of a pretty lake in a park, the Bootjeshuis offers a wide selection of snacks and light meals. Friendly and quick service. Always worth a visit.

The meals are ok, but not overwhelming. But you receive consolation when enjoying the nice view, since you may succeed in obtaining a table near the water, in being served by a good looking student helper and by 3, 2 to 1 glasses of lovely beer...

You come here for the location, overlooking the lake in Tervuren Park. The food is average at best, the prices high and the service slow. Bring cash (lots of it) because they don't take cards. But on a warm day, to spend time with family and friends who are not in a hurry, it's great.

Never spent so much money on a sad little croque monsieur before. I can't imagine what they did to it to make it taste so poor that I wouldn't even feed it to the ducks. Massively overpriced.

It is an amazing experience to sit just outside of busy Brussels, at the shore of the lake at Tervuren, in bright sunshine, sipping from a nice glass of cool white wine and waiting for ober Marcel to bring the plate of perfectly prepared scampis. It can be very relaxing to admire the small island in the middle of the... More
