We ate here last night after reading the great reviews online. We didn't opt for starters but the restaurant provided free homemade houmous and bread. Which was a nice touch. My partner chose a rare steak with chips and he really loved it! I had a cheese burger with bbq sauce (cooked well done) and it was really delicious. Fresh... More

It's not my first time here and I'm happy to report that nothing has changed! The food is still yummy, the service is still attentive and speak English and they have few options for vegetarians which is always a plus Check it out and you will not regret it

Walked in as a group of seven early on a Friday evening. The staff were quick to accommodate us. The restaurant is nicely presented with a modern feel. Drinks were well priced, the food we had was great. Between us we had a variety of burgers, the meatloaf and the steak. The meatloaf was great, a credit to the place.... More

Ate ther a dinner in the month of february. The Restaurant is well located, just in the corner of Place Rouppe. The waiters are very welcoming and the food is great. I ordered a burger which was delicious and took as well a very nice belgian beer. The prices are OK, could be a bit cheeper.

Try a huge glass of their home made lemonade while enjoying a delicious burger (which is so big that you don't have to be ashamed to use a fork and a knife) ;)

The place is very quaint and nice, however the food is really nothing special. The burgers are just ok, the service is polite, the value for money is average. It's ok for a night out, but don't expect anything special: 7/10.

Good place for eating Gourmet burgers! Fresh ingredients: the beef meat is good and the salads are fresh.
