Nice dinner in a warm terrace

We booked in advance cause we were 9 and they gave us a warm place in the terrace. All dishes at the table seemed delicious but I highly recommend saumon béa and magret, these dishes were really tasty. 25€ per person (including wine and beverages). Good value for money. Service was nice until the... read more

I had dinner here a year ago and never felt the need to go back. The food was average if not on the heavy side. It wasn't anything special. This weekend a couple asked us to join them there for dinner and I figured it had been a year, so maybe we should try it again. Well the menu was... More

Service was very good; we had lunch and a dessert; both were very tasty. Prices are high; serving size is typical; ingredients are fresh and carefully chosen. Salad was fresh & crispy; seafood was also very good. Noisy if the tables are full; lots of energy. Newly decorated inside.

Went here as part of a business dinner and it didn't disappoint. Good wine and food in a good looking restaurant, would recommend it to anyone.

I have been going for years. My personal favourite is the pappardelle pasta. Strong well melded flavours with really great ingredients. My mother and I have enjoyed their creme brûlée as well as they do a classic dessert well.

Make Gou a part of your day. We usually spend a little more than two hours at lunch while eating at Gou. My favorite place to sit is in the sunroom even on a cold rainy day. The food presentation is excellent and the flavors don’t disappoint. My favorite thing to order is their business lunch, which changes frequently. The... More

Poor standard of food at a high price. In leafy ex-pat Stockel area Woluwe St. Pierre. Informal but prosperous clientele. Scampi tomato stew-soup starter which which was hard to eat as they hadn't been properly shelled - no finger wipes provided. followed by an utterly tasteless filet steak served in two bits with greasy chips. My partner had smoked quail... More

The trendy decor and the sunny terrasse in the summer make the restaurant an enjoyable place for lunch. Good and tasty food, friendly service at a reasonable price.

I was invited there by a friend: really delicious foie gras , just sour enough , not too soft served with spicy salt, then a delicious pheasant with great cooked vegetables. Staff friendly and very polite. Good prices . I will return there
