Love the decor, not unreasonably priced for the central area, staff's English wasn't brilliant but they were incredibly pleasant and really helpful. Sadly they'd run out of Moules Mariniere! Steak, chips and salad, good portions, cooked as requested. Thanks You

Just behind Grand Place, this restaurant offers great food and great service without the high price tag. Waiter was very friendly, even taking some group photos for us...would definitely return.

It was just horrible and durty. The salad was not fresh with rotten tomatoes. We could just eat some grilled rabbit, at least it was safe to eat as it was cooked. The interior design is cute, but all smog of the kitchen goes up and there was no air conditioner, so better not to seat at the upper floors... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant by chance on Saturday (31 May). It's cute and has a quaint interior. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive. My friend ordered ribs (medium cooked) which fell off the bone - sweet and juicy. I had the steak (medium) which was tasty, though a little thinner than I had expected. The beer was good,as was...

On the plus side, food arrived quickly and I enjoyed the two different beer that I had. My wife's steak was "passable" while my chicken was very dry. The waitress did not know what the house wine was and it turned out to leave a bitter aftertaste. It was poor and undrinkable. Restaurants abound near Grand Place. I will be... More

After first visit, I could recommend this restaurant to my friend. So we visited again in group. Everyone was happy, vegetarians, Muslim, and others could find proper food. Off course I've choosen beef, really amazing. And price is very, very reasonable. After dinner/lunch U may return to travel thru Ols Town.

The interior of this restaurant is quite quirky and the staff are very friendly, albeit less attentive the further you go up the building. I don't blame them for not wanting to go up and down the stairs all night! The food is standard grill and chips fare but not bad and a reasonable price for the centre of Brussels.... More

We happened to walk past this restaurant early evening. It is centrally located not far from the main square. We saw a large sign outside advertising a steak deal for 9,90 euros. After receiving the menu from our waiter there was no mention of this deal but after asking for it they said this would be possible. The food was... More

Despite a not busy lunchtime, a single course meal of steak and frites took 1 and 3/4 hours from sitting down to eventually going to the bar to chase up the bill. While the staff were pleasant, the service was glacial, and when it became obvious that our order had been forgotten (another table that arrived an hour after us... More
