Slow service, expensive (*) BUT first-class mussels! (*): "basic" pot of mussels + 1 drink = € 30,50
No noncence, great food, delicious steaks. This place isn't fine dining, it's more how granny used to cook with the deco to match but you wouldn't want it any other way! A must!
This is a very good Belgian restaurant. Cosy, comfortable, quick service and great food. They have a terrace, don t mind kids and have a very friendly staff.
For meat lovers this is haven. The chef cuts his own cuts. There is a choice of many classic French sauces.. Several Belgian beers are served and the wine list is big. For those who have difficulties chewing 500 grams of cow, filet pur is served by the gram. Home made fries and mayo should not be lacking.
Nice special restaurant. A former Belgian (French) Fries restaurant, but now more of a spontaneous little restaurant (brasserie) where you can eat delicious mussels and steak with belgian fries of course. The service is very very friendly! They even helped us with cutting the foor for the cildren. Recommended to go.

If you look for a deluxe restaurant with elegant tables and service , pass your way , it is not for you : small tables , plastic tablecloths , unsophisticated clients and attendants. On the contrary if you like mussels (cooked or raw) , fish and beef , it is the place : excellent & fresh products , perfectly prepared... More
Discovered this restaurant via a travel documentary on TV and it looked really down to earth. It is not the posh restaurant but more a luxury snackbar around the corner with limited but very good quality food. My wife had meatballs with tomato sauce and myself a filet pur. Both served with very good french fries. The preparation of the... More
Out of the way is a relative term here about 20 minutes bt metro or taxi from the centre so no big deal. The place is authentic, not many foreigners and those who are there have not arrived by accident. Good Brussels food - fish, mussels, steaks etc including a really good carbonnade which you won't get in the more... More
