I have just been lucky enough to experience this little gem of a restaurant with my partner in downtown Saint catherine. Was possibly the best dining experience I have ever had. The service was excellent and very welcoming! The waiter was polite, to care to top up our drinks and explained everything clearly to us, due to us being English... More

Living in Brussels, my husband and I often find our meals overpriced, service to be bare minimum, and the food to just be ok. Not the story here! Excellent service, food, and conversation. We were so happy to stumble upon the place! First of all it is in a quieter corner near De Brouckere and Saint Catherine's. It is right... More

Quite nice food, tasty and the chef asks you how do you like your meal (salty, sweet, rare or nicely done). However, the price is maybe a bit off, but not by too much.

I stumbled upon this restaurant and found the food to be outstanding. Also, I was very impressed as the chef made the meal to order. I did not even really order off the menu. The beer selection could have been better but the dinner and dessert were excellent!!!!!

After reading the rave reviews I visited this restaurant. The first thing that alerted me was the tacky laminated menu with very reasonable prices. Indeed we were served the free starter which I have to say was poorly presented, a bit of salmon on cheap sliced brown bread with a (shop bought) pepper containing crème cheese on top is rather...

Very pleasantly welcomed and made to feel at home, which was important given that this is a small restaurant. Nice but fairly limited range of food, which allowed for it to be individually prepared by the characterful chef and presumably owner. The end result is great tasting dishes. Unrushed, relaxed ambience thanks not least to the friendliness of the service.... More

We dined here twice two years ago and this year came back for more. The (pork) calvados, salmon, lamb, filet mignon (we’re really not red-meat eaters, but this happened to be so good that it’ll be pointless to get it elsewhere), and homemade soups were all dynamite. There is a nice selection of wines, including half-bottles, in this informal restaurant... More

Went here based on the high Trip advisor review. Owner said they were closed but had a single Prix fixe dinner - smoked salmon on toast, garlic shrimp and sole meuniere. Unbelievable and super fresh. Fish were shown to us before cooking. Asked for white wine and owner brought out the first bottle he saw - an Alsace pinot Gris.... More
