First time here. We were welcomed in a very polite way. The restaurant was almost full. We were pleased with the food: fresh products, good flavors, a wide variety of dishes and a summer menu with or without accompanying wines. We both went for à la carte dishes. My friend went for scampi's and... read more

When visiting Purple 15 you can always expect quality and a friendly service, so we gladly take our friends here for a nice meal. The change from the more traditional Wienerhaus to the more modern Purple 15 has indeed worked and the entire atmosphere is indeed fresh and contemporary, however I miss the previous cosy feeling somewhat. Anyway, it does... More

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! ;)
