Fun experience with family

Had an enjoyable dinner here with family for 12 year old son's birthday. Staff was great at celebrating occasion and we all had smiles on faces. Even customized the music playing to his choice.

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

Perfectly located in an area full of posh restaurants and chocolate shops - an actual taste if Brussels pop-culture :-) The restaurant is built into a set if old buildings connected through walls, with different floor and ceiling levels, one of them a former gothic (?) chappel... You get an unique blend of styles and tastes with the stone and... More

Claim to have the best burgers in town but not bothered to serve me mid evening. So went to skievelat as long restaurant down the road that probably had the second best burgers in Brussels.

Many comics memorabilia including statues, although the meals didn't have comic themes they were still tasty, prices are similar to other places in Belgium.

We stopped here for lunch while in Grand Sablon and wasn't disappointed. We had the chicken burger - very good - and the salad - also very good. The decor was cool especially if you are into Tin Tin! Stop by you won't go wrong.
