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

Warm welcoming service in perfectly situated restaurant. Next to forest so great to combine with pre/post lunch walk. Good brasserie style food with excellent steaks and fish. Nice selection of beers and wine.

A large group of us including children visited for sunday lunch and we found it to be excellent. Our large order was dealt with well and there were no complaints with the food.

Having been to so many brasseries recommended by one friend or another and usually a ho-hum result sadly this is most assuredly NOT in that! No reservation, cold call, on a weekend evening (a bit later - 8pm) there we are. Table for two? No problem right this way. What language would you prefer - French, Flemish or English? A... More

If you're looking for something typically Belgian, you're at the right address. The brasserie has a classical local decoration, made of tiles and wooden chairs and tables. The staff is also typically Belgian, speaking a mix of Flemish and French and is particularly welcoming, warm and friendly. The staff only would already make this place a must. The menu is... More

My family and I often frequent this restaurant, in fact when my girls come home from the UK it's a must! The waiters are extremely friendly and efficient and the food is always superb. Would highly recommend. Everything is good, but the flllet steak is the best! (Also good for moules frites)

Been coming here for Sunday lunch years, usually when Istas next door is full (not entirely sure why because I find the food and service here marginally better). Their steaks are excellent, invariably cooked to perfection; the frites are also excellent; and the service is very friendly. Wines are a bit limited, but very reasonably priced. My partner's grandchildren adjudged... More

This is a classic Belgian brasserie, with friendly service, nice decor and all the brasserie specialties you would expect. There always seem to be lots of regulars, often with kids and/or dogs. They won my loyalty on my first visit -- to my great embarassment, I found I had left my wallet at home, but they waved me away and... More

This restautrant was very busy with locals while over the road a resturant was empty - I don't know how good the one over the road was, but we ate really well here, with old fashioned service (without servitude) from waiters - the menu was limited compared to next door "Istis" but what they did was really good - wouldn't...
