Just ate here and had to give it a review. I had the 'Funky Chicken' burger and a side of fries. I loved both! The burger had a nice juicy chicken fillet, red onion, some sort of flavoured mayo, roasted peppers/capsicum.... Delicious! The bun was so fresh & soft. The chips were good as well - and came with this... More

I hesitate to write this as instinctively I knew that I was cruising for a bruising when entering a hamburger restaurant for a vegetarian burger (my companion had a non-veg one). Unfortunately the 'portobello and goat cheese burger' was nothing to write home about, totally tasteless. It even looked pityingly shrivelled. The best part of my meal were the extra... More

Pro tip - the bathroom is located on floor 3 or 4, I can't remember which. In any case, it's way up there. Nice hip burger joint. Pretty good service and pleasantly surprised by excellent burgers. A good place for lunch.

Great burger restaurant, slightly overpriced. We ordered the 3 different gourmet burger platter and were not disappointed. Especially the chicken burger is delicious and made from quality ingredients. Staff was also very friendly and the location is real nice, by St. Catherine. The design and furniture of the place was also very inviting and comfortable. Looks great.

There is a general feel good in the place but nothing that can't be found in some other burger places in Brussels. The sides and burgers are delicious but they should not have had such high prices. I guess the place is appreciated as it is extremely hard to find a table - most nights are busy. The service is... More

Found this beautiful restaurant while walking around St Catherine area in Brussels. Had a chicken and a veg burger. Both were excellent and the place has nice selection of wine and tap beers. Double Thumbs Up !!

Overheated and tired we ended up here for lunch on tuesday. I normally hate just taking a chance on a place if I have a very short time in a city but lunch was needed fast! The service was friendly and the burgers were very good. It wasnt cheap but, I think, on balance it was worth it. As in... More

It's a very popular place and well-known among tourists and locals. That's why we had to wait for around an hour to get a table :( It was a shame that the food didn't come up to our expectations, the burgers were tasty but absolutely nothing special and a bit small. You can easily get better quality for a lower... More

Attempted to eat here with a friend after a tiring day walking round the lovely city of Brussels. Big mistake. My friend and I sat at one of the outside tables. After a wait of 20 minutes a waitress appeared. We asked for the menu which she gave us. She didn't return. The menu looked OK but I cannot, alas,... More

Mean portions, no atmosphere, and expensive. We went on the recommendation of my brother-in-law but were deeply disappointed. It's not rocket science to serve generous burgers and chips - it's cheap food, don't be stingy with it towards your customers.
