I love this cosy and romantic place

I love this restaurant, especially in the winter, when it is grey and cold outside. It is like a little cocoon of warmth, where the food is good and the service very friendly. To start the bread and olives are of excellent quality as are the pasta and meat dishes. All served in generous portions... read more

Food was really nice and tasty, and was quite hearty. Waiters were all nice and attentive. The only drawback is that the place is so busy that you kind of feel you have to rush through.

We recently spent a weekend in Brussels and came here on our first night. We were aware that you can't book and since we knew we were arriving late (we got there after 9pm) we thought this might be a good opportunity to get in, even though it was a Friday night. Sadly there was still a queue. There was... More

We took über and went in for dinner the first night when we arrived. The wait stuffs doesn't speak much English (or not very friendly) and it's a cash only place. Definitely caught us off guard. There was no printed menu and it was only written on the wall. The wait staff expected us to know right away what we... More

This is the second time I go for dinner in this restaurant. It has been a very pleasant experience both times. I had different types of cuisines (belgian and international) and both were excellent. The atmosphere is warm and friendly.

You can tell with this crowded pub/restaurant that it is a cut above the rest. Always a large crowd with large selection of interesting Belgian food and a large selection of Belgian beers. Food is good and hearty and the beer is interesting with a wide range of Belgian brews to choose from. Staff is very friendly and will good... More

The restaurant is pretty big, with nice decoration. The menu is written on a big blackboard. We had chilli con carne, steak, soup. Everything was very tasty.

My husband and I had a very pleasant dining experience here. It was very busy but because it was just the two of us we were seated right away. There are only drink menus and the food menu was located on a chalk board over the bar. It is all in French but at some point after looking at it... More
