Bustling brasserie with good service and choice

I popped in for evening meal and chose la Foret over other local eateries as it was busier than them. The choice is good, the service courteous and friendly by apron-clad waiters, pricing is reasonable, and the fondant au chocolat is to die for!

we went to this restaurant for lunch. It was very busy but that was OK, we were happy to enjoy the buzz. Unfortunately, the food took a very long time to arrive, even the cold starter. The main courses were average (my chicken was quite tough) and not presented at all attractively. Overall, nothing wrong but little to identify as... More

We booked a table for 11 to cheer us up after a funeral and the Foret did not fail us, we were warmly welcomed, promptly attended to and had a delicious meal, I strongly recommend the 'cote a l'os' but the 'filet americain' was equally good, there is a vast choice of beer on the tap and they are all...

This restaurant only was full in this little village and we understood why. Very good fresh food with a great ambiance. Can recommend the Lemon meringua pie with coconut pasta, very very good....... very simple but good quality, a great moment and a good price. sometimes no need to search complicated

Went here last night. Had the carrot soup, nice but tepid. Server was a bit off, was always in conversation with other tables when dealing with our table, which was not great. We had T-bone steaks which were very good, big and perfectly cooked. However the frites were soggy and oily! I wanted cream and mushroom sauce but with garlic... More

Real Belgian Brassserie with typical design. Waiters very friendly ! However It can be very busy on nice summmer evenings and be a bit chaotic. Typical Belgian dishes at correct prices . The combination of the typica interior of the brasserie, the cosy atmosphere and the "local" food makes it worth going for a family dinner. You will not be... More

We had a good meal before we had to attend a party in the neighborhood. Restaurant established in 1908. Therefore we had some light dishes. Starting of with some oysters and afterwards some fish and mussels. It is more apparent that the locals know their locals here and that is what it is all about here. Mind you the menu... More
