Attracted by the gentleman in the street who guaranteed they were the cheapest and nicest restaurant on the stretch we were enticed by the €12 for 3 course menu. It seemed like a great offer, especially with the offer of complimentary 'champagne' if we came in. For €12 we weren't expecting much, however when the croquettes starter arrived we expected... More

We were seduced by the man in the alley who sold the restaurant to us as he appeared reasonably genuine and the place looked ok.There were only a few people inside but the food took forever to come and when it did it was worse than disgusting. Awful, terrible food appeared to be cooked by a gardener or bricklayer and... More

Be careful! Avoid at all costs - a thoroughly awful experience. There are multiple menus and multiple prices - in the end we just walked away without eating. The food was supposed to be a meat platter for two, but came with a small pot of chips, a single lamb chop, a sausage and a beef burger - supposedly for... More

Not our choice by any stretch of the imagination. The menus arrived, €18 the cheapest for a chicken dish.. All the rest were late... More

After entering at the prospect of a 3 course €12 menu with my wife and 3 year old we were promptly given every menu except the €12 one. We asked for this and begrudgingly got it. We ordered our meals and asked what they had for children, we were told spaghetti or chicken and chips. We asked for the latter... More

Staying with my wife for two nights in Brussels. Had a great time until we entered this restaurant for our evening meal. Had two very basic mixed grills which cost - wait for it - 45 Euro each. When I queried the price the manager got very nasty and there were four other male employees in the vicinity so we... More
