I went to this restaurant with my family. The food was good and the prices were decent. However, the service was terrible. I couldn't think of a more unfriendly restaurant. I am sure there must be some nicer and friendlier restaurant in the beautiful city of Dinant, so don't lose time going to this place. After all, bad service will... More

Can't comment on the food, as the waitress wouldn't serve us any. We sat at a table on the terrasse and the waitress grudgingly took our drinks order. We also wanted snacks, since it was 11.30am. When we tried to order food, we were told that they weren't serving any until 12pm. We were bewildered by this, as everyone around... More

Good food but disappointing service. We had the chicken Gordon blue with fries, which was excellent. The service seems to prefer to seat you in the worst place available despite plenty of free spaces. On the plus. They do speak English.

Made a reservation for 14 persons. The menu consisting of ham, steak and chocolate mousse was served promptly. The lady of the house was friendly and allowed us to have a very nice evening. The interior is plain, the location good and looking at the bill at the end of the evening, we had to conclude it was great value... More

Could not say much about food they serve for I only had drinks and fries, but the views and atmosphere here are amazing. I could spend hours just sitting there outside, sipping wine and looking down at beautiful town of Dinant. There is also quite big playground for the kids to keep them enternained. I love this place!

Traditional french bistro style kitchen. Here they won't immediately stuff you with french fries and uncooked meats (which they seem to love in Belgium). The mixed plate with assorted sausages, foie gras and vegetables was very nice.
