Not the best service really. I wouldn't say they were rude, but they were lacking in any form of 'customer service' and seemed more focussed on pumping the food out quickly to be able to clear and refill tables. This aside, the food was rather good actually. I had the lapin a la kriek - rabbit cooked in cherry beer.... More

What a shocking little hovel of a restaurant - Quite the rudest staff I have ever encountered in Brussels, a traditionally very friendly city. The 'restaurant' should really have sign outside saying ' Brits not welcome'. I strongly suggest you don't darken the door of this wildly overrated back street establishment. Nuff said.

Excellent traditional belgian food, located in the heart of Ixelles. The Stoemp and Jambonneau are amazing. Waiters are very professional. The bad point it is not big, so you might have to wait some time to get your table. Highly recommended.

If I could, I would rate this restaurant zero. I had been here before and found the ambiance pleasant enough in a touristy kind of way, and the food OK. This time I did not enjoy so much the food - the lapin au kriek was tepid; the friets were oily, and the moulieux au chocolat was unremarkable. There seemed... More

I choose this hotel after reading the reviews on trip advisor. Although it said to book I figured that eating early and alone would not be a problem. I bowled up at 18:50 and got the last table in the restaurant! Decor is basic and functional; worn wooden tables and chairs. Menu selection is reasonable and I went for the... More

Great little restaurant hidden down some back roads. The only reason we went (or knew about this place) was because we were meeting someone who lived in Belgium and they suggested it. I had the rabbit in a cherry beer sauce and my partner had a meatball in syrup. Really nice food. Restaurant was cosy and good traditional food at... More

Hidden in a queit street, we were surprised to find this wonderful restaurant serving delicious traditional Belgian dishes. We had the beef stewed in beer (15 eur) and rabbit leg in cherry beeer sauce (13 eur). Mains were served with a choice of Stoemp, Fries, or Potatos. Service was good too! Place a reservation if you don't want to risk... More

Not easy to find but definitely worth it ! I had a burger and was a bit disappointed in the quality of the meat but others had typically Belgian/Brussels specialities and were delighted. The place in itself is definitely worth visiting and they only take reservations up until 9 pm after you will have to wait at the bar until... More

The restaurant is situated in a side street off of Porte de Namur. Normally you could expect it to be fairly packed so it's best to make a reservation beforehand (learned this the hard way). Dishes offered are authentic and hearty Belgian fare which doesn't come by easily in Brussels. The carbonnade and boulettes (meatballs) were good as was the... More
