One of the best restaurants in Aalst

When visiting Purple 15 you can always expect quality and a friendly service, so we gladly take our friends here for a nice meal.

A very attractive dining room, with friendly and helpful staff. Main course was good quality, but the desserts were spectacular and worthy of a visit on their own! House wine was good quality and well priced.

Very friendly and helpful staff. We ordered a la carte.The shrimp croquettes were homemade although I've eaten better ones. The crispy, fried mushrooms with a fresh tartar sauce was spot on though. As a main course we ordered some Austrian classics from the menu: the Tiröler Gröstl - a monumental dish of potatoes, onions, beef and an omelette seasoned with... More

The food was amazing and the service very friendly. We had the Stoofpotje Edelhert and the Ossehaas, and it was the best we've eaten in Belgium so far. Nice decor inside and good wine.

Just one negative point; turn down the heating a bit in winter when the restaurant is full. Thanks for the great night! Auf Wiedersehen ;)

The fact that i return time after time says enough, no? Price - quality unbeatable and every month another choice of menu, i love it! The wines are delicious and the atmosphere is retro and very cosy. To conclude: i'm a big fan! ;)

We already went to ther estaurant already several times, and always we were pleased: good food, good service, foor a good prrice. Very varying menu, when you take wines withthe menu, they give you big and full glasses. I really would recommend this!

Second visit and also this time great evening. First time was in November with only the two of us during wild season: menu was lovely! Now we went back with our family (10 adults and 3 children): still valentine menu, great food but strange to think about valentine early March. The service was good only one waitress was very poor...
