Nice experience

We wanted to come here for a long time! The place is just beautiful, must have been an old shop. Staff is very friendly. Food is just excellent even though portions are a bit small. All in all a good experience!

Avoid to come when you are hungry! Special plates with mushrooms. But not enough for a brave man and very long time before being served

We came to this Resto for a bachelorette dinner, the food was good albeit limited choices, portion sizes are small but ok of you don't want to have a huge meal and watch the calories :). The mushroom cheese cake which I thought might be going just too far - was quite delicious. Good place to try out. Service was... More

Food is ok, but portions are small and overpriced. We booked a table at 9:30, and they did not take our orders until 10:30. The entrée arrived at 10:45, main course at 11:30. We have paid 55 euros per person and we have been tortured during almost 3 hours. We were starving... As I said, food is good and tasty,... More

This restaurant is well off the beaten track but is certainly worth the trip. In a cosy setting, with open kitchen, mushroom-based dishes are prepared and served. The wine menu has organic wines. The owners have another restaurant next doors and across the street.

I first discovered this place when it opened, some 5 years ago. I loved the concept and the food. It was really good. I went back last week and I was let down by very poor quality food and slow and unfriendly service. The gnocchi were embarrassing: certainly cooked several hours before, they were re-heated, served with a modest besciamelle... More

I managed to book a table at this restaurant after a long while therefore my expectations we're quite high. I would say that the food is good, the concept interesting but i was not completely satisfied with service. They have insisted for us to be there at 19:00 and when arrived the restaurant was empty. Even so they have give... More

The idea is good, the food is not bad if a bit over priced, but the service is just some of the worst I have ever experienced. To say it is slow its a understatement. Reserved in advance, got to the place on time, to get a menu took a bit but after was the major issue, from the appetiser... More

A good restaurant with excellent service, a rare thing in Brussels. Affordable and original if you like mushrooms, we will definitely come back. Good value fixed price menu.
