Nice Restaurant in a Trendy Neighborhood

We had a long dinner with friends at this restaurant on a Sunday night (when lots of places are closed). The food was excellent, the atmosphere and the service were both good, and no one seemed to mind when we stayed late talking.

This restaurant serves excellent dishes at a reasonable price. The service is very efficient – one does not wait too long for the orders .The ambiance is very pleasant, busy but not too noisy. They have also a good list of wines.

Everything was perfect apart from a not so friendly waitress. Great food, location and ambience. Unfortunately, they didnt have moules so I went for the pork. Would definitely try it again.

Great local seafood restaurant. We sat at the seafood bar and saw all food come out of the kitchen. Great service, fresh, well-cooked seafood and lovely ambiance. Will definitely return if ever back on Brussels.

The kitchen is great. Very fine cooking for a brasserie. I had a superb chicken with spinach and my partner crevettes with risotto. Excellent preparations. The white and red housewine was ok. Most of the customers were eating the set lunch menu at 16 euros. The other dishes are a bit overpriced. So I give them not the full 5... More

Went there this Sunday. The dishes were extremely good, great food, especially when it comes to the meat/fish dishes. The price is a bit high and the vegetarian options are not adequate. Overall, very good place to go eat!
