This restaurant is well situated and friends and I have dined there several times but this latest visit was a disappointment. The staff were efficient, if somewhat obsequious, but having such loud conversations between themselves that it was hard to have a conversation. Our beef carpaccios were dark brown in places and unappealing. We will not be returning.

We visited for a business lunch, had a great time and good food. I had a pizza, asked for extra mushrooms which was no problem at all, and enjoyed it. The pastas looked very nice as well, especially the sampler plate that some of my colleagues chose. Good food for lunch!

We come here regularly and are always impressed, initially by the professional service. The waiters really do take care of you, and always with a smile. There is a large fish selection on ice by the entry so you can see that everything is fresh. Portions are generous and the food is always excellent. The atmosphere is welcoming, with a... More

We have been going to this restaurant for many years and it never disappoints. The service id fast and friendly and the food is freshly made and very good. Recommended for an area of Brussels which has a lot of tourist restaurants.

Having checked with the tripadvisor reviews, we tried this restaurant which is conveniently next to the cinema. We will not go again. We had extremely disappointing pizzas. One was a really undercooked calzone, with unmelted cheese and ham wrapped in almost raw dough and topped with a ketchup-type tomato sauce. Unforgivable and of course totally indigestible. There is only one... More

This is a very nice place. Been there many times, and always been satisfied with the food and service. Not too many vegetarian options for mains, but do not worry - pizza is outstanding and worth the try, as well as all the meat and fish dishes. The staff do not speak English too well, but it has never been... More

I see that there are several bad reviews of this place - we have eaten here regularly over the years - last time a couple of days ago, and never had a problem. We were welcomed by a friendly and professional waiter who was attentive without being overbearing. The steaks were wonderfully tasty, and very tender. Had to send one... More

Despite being in an unexpected location (Matonge) and with a misleading decoration (African style) this Italian restaurant serves well cooked food, has a creative menu and portions are right.

Bad service, bad/mediocre and expensive food, fair billing (we sent back one of our starters because it was not fresh (carpaccio du boeuf) and they took it off of the bill without us asking). The tuna carpaccio and risotto were not fresh either. The place has great potential, they should be nicer, treat costumers much better and make bigger investment... More
