Didn't try the food here, but very interesting cafe in the middle of the chocolate district of Belgium. Alway nice top hop into a nice quirky cafe and have a drink in the middle of a hot summer.

Enjoyed an excellent burger and chips from the lunch menu. So good to have a real burger! The service was flawless and we thoroughly enjoyed the quirky decor.

We were intrigued by the restaurant that boasts the "best burger in brussels". Well I must say that not only is that an exaggeration, but also a complete rip off. The staff were very unprofessional, no uniforms, bad attitude and just not fit for the industry. When asked what type of fish was in the fish burger due to a... More

We just found the place off the street and walked up the stairs not knowing what to expect. The comic book theme of the returant was amusing and lent character to the resturant, However the food was excellent too - and the service was attentive.

Decent atmosphere, original drawings from cartoons on the walls. Comic related things everywhere but not cluttered. Food was delicious especially there homemade fries! Very friendly service. A must go for a bite to eat and to chill.

Had a delicious lunch here. The food was great, the service was great and the view from the outdoor seats was good. Try the Flemish stew, it's fab!

This is a fun cafe, decorated with Tintin posters, some signed by Herge himself. There is also a life sized bronze statue of Tintin upstairs which is great for photos. The food was very tasty and reasonable priced. I would definitely return, given the opportunity.

We are a family of 5 adults and 3kids whom chanced upon this cafe while sightseeing in the area. We were one of the first customers at 12pm so the friendly waitress brought my son around the whole cafe for a visit. We ordered 5 main courses ( beef stew which was yummy, caesar salad which was too dry, croquette... More
