Good Seafood - Good Service

Really good service. Willing to explain the menu to non natives. The Duck Liver entree was amazing and so was the fish!

Excellent fish, good wine, friendly service and traditional decor. Well worth going, excellent meals and within walking distance from Opera and square. I would go again.

I hate pretentious foody rubbish - and all the elitist snobbery that goes with it.. Thank goodness that Belgium can quietly and discreetly serve food that many neighbouring countries would make a big and very boring fuss over. This is a quaint and excellent fish restaurant with classic focus on client privacy and subtle assistance with the menu. Highly recommended... More

Amazing restaurant - ate there both nights I stayed in Liege (but I am a lobster freak!). Maitre D' and his staff were fantastic - friendly and efficient. The décor is beautiful "Art Deco" - tiled walls etc - just what I like. The Lobster was delicious. I couldn't have found a better place for my short stay. And they... More

Totally delicious food. Had the menu du jour. Everything was great. Reasonably priced at 38€ each for two entrees, a main and an awesome dessert which was more like two desserts. Would highly recommend.

I enjoyed a good meal here with a group of friends. The seafood platter was very good, as good as I have had anywhere in Europe, with the oysters in particular being of excellent quality. Some of our party ate fish, which was also very fresh and well cooked. The service was a little slow, but the small free tasting... More

We walked through the center of Liege and already saw this restaurant on tripadvisor with mainly good reviews. Hence we figured let's give it a try. What started to be an outstanding evening, with a memorable starter dish (fish) and an amazing white wine which I will keep my eyes open for ended in a unfortunately not so memorable main... More

Service very cold, food quality not constant. We had a good experience and after that we had a bad experience with not well cooked fish.

I ate here years ago and wanted to come back the next time I came to Liege! Still very good I am pleased to report. We reserved in advance and asked for a "bonquet" table downstairs as the room is beautifully decorated in a Parisian bistrot style and has an elegant charm. We both ate fish and both thoroughly enjoyed... More

I was taken here for dinner by a local relative. Since I don't speak French, I had to rely on their assistance ordering. However, the waiter did eventually provide an English menu, but you'll probably need to know enough French to ask for the English menu. The food was exceptional. A wide variety of seafood. Also great desserts. Located in... More
