Nice food, nice atmosphere

I ordered moussaka and to drink a glass of Orval. Good food and absolutely divine beer. Price is fair but not exactly cheap, but worth a visit.

No welcome. They acknowledged me but let me wait by the door. Staff was busy talking. Second dish was placed on the table when I was having the first dish!!! Ignorant. No one came to ask me the dessert or bill. Terrible service ever!!!

Tube light, no-nonsense service, great chees assortiment, this is a nice, authentic place (or at least appearing as such). Not your regular tourist trap.

A star exhibit in the agreeably large number of traditional Brussels brasseries that haven't changed much in the last century or so. Delightful 30s-40s interior with wood panelling, nice old tables and chairs (some booth seating) and old flourescent advertising. Although the menu was perhaps a bit restricted and predictable, I enjoyed my bangers and mash, washed down by draught... More

I am a student here in Brussels, 25, and when I walked in with a visiting family member, who went to the rest room, I went to take a seat in their restaurant section. As I was sitting, a man came over, the "management" I think, and asked me, --"This this the eating section, you can sit over there if... More

shame about the service. Traditional hearty Belgian menu, well cooked and reasonably priced. Service was a bit absentminded (would hate to come here when they're busy) but an enjoyable visit.

I like to think I'm a pretty patient restaurant patron. And I understand not to expect top notch service when eating at a casual place like this. But the service here can be deplorable. Want a second beer? Don't bother expecting your waiter to bring one. After 2 polite requests in 20 minutes, you'll want to walk over to the... More
