Popular hang out for both locals and tourists situated right at the epicenter of Brussels' Gay Village. I enjoyed a beautifully presented local Goat Cheese Salad. The portions were good and came with a basket of fresh bread. The service was just OK, but it did not bother me as I was there to sit outside on the terrace and... More

The food is nicely prepared. Well tasting regional dishes for a reasonable price. Location is very good, close to the bars and always to watch people. However the service often is at the limit. Understaffed or/and untrained. Thus, if you can live with the limited service quality, you can enjoy the place.

Good location and reasonable service BUT we had steak tartare - don't. Husband and I were VERY ILL and son, fortunately probably, didn't like his Lasagna so left it. Shame - last restaurant on our trip of Europe so not ended well.

The day we went (perhaps it was different at other times) there was only one waiter and his assistant for the whole restaurant... More

If you are into good homely food well cooked and great people watching look no further. there is an eclecctic mix of patrons local and tourists and most of Brussels appears to pass you by at almost any time of day

We had coffee, beer and snacks here. The area is lively and gay. Wait staff friendly. Nothing special food wise but a must to experience nighttime fun in Brussels.

Food was basic but well prepared and presented. We sat outside on the street and enjoyed the atmosphere of the place. Service was good and prices were very reasonable.
