Amazing burgers. Let's try it!

I have been here for a dinner some weeks ago. Some friend of us suggested this place specifically for the burgers. The restaurant is close to the city centre in a safe area easy to join even by walk. Inside it's at the same time classic and modern, a good solution for a restaurant that try to be a... read more

DO NOT VISIT!!! We were a party of two who were looking forward to trying these great burgers according to the reviews. I really dont understand how they have gotten these high reviews, someone should look into the validity of those. I ordered a pretty simple burger , i think it is the first one on the menu. I only...

I do not know how this place gets those reviews, we were a party of three and every single hamburger was overcooked (we complained about it but as usual here in Brussels you just get a sorry sir, not a solution), on top of that it took no less than 1.5 hours to have dinner, just 1 hour to get...

Used to be our safe place for good quality burgers but ever since the change over of managers, this place has just become an utter disappointment. Service was excruciatingly slow and bad. We ordered red wine and were served the end of a bottle that contained pieces of cork. Our food was left on the counter for a good ten... More

Some of the best burgers I've ever had. Mmmm Try this place. You won't regret it. Great service also. Nice Belgium beers to go with the burger.

The staff was very nice and caring through our whole visit there. They quikly gave us some good bread with a nice dressing while we waited to order. After a while, we got our burgers - and they were very good. The flavors were good balaced and a rich salad was served with it. I also had the fries which... More

Burgers were good but not spectacular. Service was polite enough but slow. It took a very long time to bring the check after I asked for it and the waiters didn't seem that bothered about us. Disappointing given how much people have been gushing over this restaurant here on Trip Advisor.

I was out of friends on our europe trip and read some pretty intense and good reviews at this place. The burgers were about average. The Appitizers were less then average and the service was less then decent. All in all, I don't understand what the fuss was about.

I read alooooot of positive reviews about this place, some said its the best burger they've tasted. Honestly it's a good burger but definitely not even close to the best burger. Appetizers were only OK and service was pretty slow! Overall, average experience.

Having been here a few times, this restaurant is a safe bet for good quality, reasonably priced burgers. However... Last night (16th March) a friend and I walked through the front door at 8pm and before we could even talk were rudely gesticulated at to leave. On reflection, how was the waiter to know whether we had a reservation or... More
