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.

Good food but poor service. Went back again to give it another try because of the location and they closed early (before 20:00). I wont be back.

Probably the worst food I've ever ate! And not to mention the service was crap, very rude waiters. Ordered noodles, tasted like pure oil and nothing else..nice view but don't even waste your time!

After waiting for 20 minutes to be noticed we decided to choose a table more in view of the waiters. Unfortunately we were still being ignored for another 20 minutes. Even though the location is superb, we were not able to judge the food as we'd never received any. Disappointed we decided to leave and look for a more welcoming... More

This is the second time that my wife and I sit on their terrace, and do not get served at all, even after a 25 minute wait. The waiters are demotivated, and avoid eye-contact as they fear more work. This is a definite no go if you want to have a relaxing afternoon activity!
