I ordered a burger and fries and I didn't like it.. the fries were good enough (just because in Belgium the have tasty fries...)... I checked the dishes of the messmates and I wasn't jealous at all so in... More

If your sick and tired of these sandwich lunches, try this place. Reasonably priced, off mainstream menu. The duck breast salad is my absolute favourite ever, followed by the meatloaf. Sometimes you wait for your food and the opening times are a wee tight. Great place nevertheless.

Every time I go to this place I eat this burger, not that others are not good, but it's difficult to find a similar duck burger in Brussels! Don't hesitate to go to This place , specially in a sunny day, they have a nice terrace!

We ordered shrimp croquettes and duck meat and foie gras burger (comes with a pot of fries) and they were delicious. The place was small and the tables were placed... More

We both had a burger at this restaurant, sat outside in the sun which all helped towards a great experience. I had the quorn burger and it was AMAZING! Great chips and beer too - very highly recommended!
