Slow service, average food

We stopped off at Dinant on our way to Charleroi airport. After visiting the Cathedral we stopped off for lunch here. There was a sudden downpour, so lots of people entered at the same time.This could be the reason why we waited ages for our food, the starter arrived after 30 minutes, and... read more

Staff was a bit stiff but not unfriendly. Lunch was ok. Prices were not so cheap for the neighbourhood.

Take the tram ride up to the Citadel. Lots of history. Stories are told. Museum with artifacts on site. A gift shop and small restaurant on site. Beautiful views of Dinant, the river Meuse and the countryside.

We stopped here for a quick drink after visiting the Citadelle and sat outside, in the afternoon sun. The location is great for relaxing and watching the tourists walk by. The waiter serving us was clearly rushed off his feet but still managed to look after us and give us our drinks fast. A good place to visit for a... More

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!
