You get the sense other diners have been coming here for years. Portions are massive, and wait staff are quite friendly to solo diners. Excellent value, too. A glass of wine and an entree is well below 40 eur. I had a risotto with a perfect pan fried sea bass, and a glass of nice dry white recommended by the... More

Our hotel clerk recommended this restaurant and I am so glad we listened! A quirky, lived in, unpretentious and established restaurant, fill to the brim with local diners on a Tuesday night, a good sign I think. I was a little dubious at first as it is close to the main drag of 'restaurant street' where most menus have pictures... More

We had dinner there. The food was traditional Belgian, less refined than I expected, but the portions were huge. The selection of wines was very good. The service was friendly and professsional, but you can expect nothing less from staff working there for decades.You will not be disappointed if you are looking for classic Belgian food, especially fish, just in...

Nice place and good food at a reasonable price (for Bruxelles). We went by chance and we returned 2 evening on the row. Waiters might be a bit too sportive but remember ..it is a bistrot, not a Restautrant.

Having dined here occasionally over several years, and returning after a gap of over a year, we were struck by two things: the continued consistent excellence of the food (especially the fish dishes), and the growing complacency of the service, which has become almost offhand. But the food is so good that I will have to check out the service... More

I used to go there several times a week with clients and collegues when I worked in the neighbourhood. Never ever a disappointment. Most of the staff has been there for several decades (some over 30 years), which is a rare thing. It has a good wine selection, and regularly new dishes on the menu. Service is efficient and very...

Really lovely interior - very old fashioned bistro atmosphere. Cosy with dark wood paneling and mirror. The menu is entirely in French, so if you don't understand French you're in trouble. Unfortunately they didn't have the squid (due to non delivery) so I had the Langoustine salad which comprised of only 3 Langoustine with lots of french beans. This was... More

We were referred to this restaurant by our hotel and guide. The food and service was excellent (they speak English and an English menu is available). I would definitely go again.

Good classic Belgium food with a slight French twist....authentic bistro ambience. Wait staff were old pros with a dry sense of humor.

I really enjoy the old-schoolness of the interior, it really transports you back in time. The food is delicious, but pricy but for me the atmosphere makes up for it.
