Setting ok, food terrible. The chef(s) cannot cook and the waiters do not listen and do not care. This place has so much potential, but relies on ripping-off tourists whom that may never see again, hence the 'don't care' attitude. We were a group of four and all were unimpressed with the very average, overcooked, pre-cooked, re-heated food. There are... More

We went here based on my grandfather's experience of it forty years ago (!). However, it was still as good as he remembered. The waiting staff were very friendly, the ambience was warm, and the food was delicious. I would particularly recommend the mussels a l'escargot and anything with frites! It is just off the beaten track, and definitely worth... More

I have eaten here many times: this year and when I was last in Brussels about 20 years' ago. The restaurant hasn't changed much. Close to the Grande Place but not one of the touristy restaurants that spoil the area. Service was terrible last time I was there but that's not normal.

Maybe they treated us badly because we were tourists, but honestly I would not recommend this place at all ! When we stepped into the restaurant, we told then we were vegetarian. And they said 'yes, vegetarian'. So we walked in assuming they had something for us to eat. The waited was extremely rude, told us there was only one... More

Interestingly there were other diners who had been recommended by various places to come here, just as we had been by our hotel. I didn't see the point of some of the faffing around the waiters were doing - transferring food (on metal platters from the kitchen) onto China plates - it wasn't like it was impressive to watch. The... More

2nd visit as part of group bookings with the 2nd experience no better or worse than the 1st. Being a group we pre booked and also tried to assist by having a restricted menu. As reported by others the actual venue is enjoyable and interesting. Also as others have reported, our own individual's thoughts as to service and quality were... More

We didn't have a reservation but the maître de found us a table in what looked to be a wonderful place to eat. The decor was superb and food other customers were eating looked delectable. But the waiters objected to the maître de fitting us in. They huddled, looked at us, huddled again, and we were deemed an inconvenience. In... More

My husband and I only had one night in Brussels and wanted really good Belgian food. This restaurant was recommended by the owner of the bed and breakfast we were staying in. He is a local so I figured we couldn't go wrong. What a mistake! They were extremely busy but still found a table for us even though we... More
