Nice fish & seafood place, friendly staff. Expected a bit more really special things, seen they have a Michelin bib gourmand, but everything stayed normal / pretty safe. But very tasty, very good food.

We decided to have the weeklunch here and were not disappointed. Service was smooth but not hasty, house wine nice and reasonably priced, food fresh and well prepared. Will be back.

This place is very authentic, with good quality food. We had the three course lobster trio. First one was delicious. Perfect temperature and combination of flavors ( with the guacamole). Second with sun dried tomatoes also good but the tomatoes overwhelmed the lobster a bit. The third was a massive disappointment. It was the one with coriander and was more... More

at least for the lobsters it's rather sad, but for us this was a very nice evening. The food is of high quality, the "gentse waarterzooi met kreeft" is sublime, and it is (still) affordable. The atmosphere is rather no nonsense, but service is correct. Our 5 course dinner took us about 2 hours, of which we enjoyed every minute.... More

We took a 5 course dinner (EUR 50 per person including two/three rounds of drinks) and it took 2.5 hours, but it was worthwhile! Especially for that price! The time between the courses could be shorter, but again the dishes were delicious. We found this restaurant on the internet and we made reservations beforehand, which it is recommended by the...

We were a party of 10 people celebrating a friend's 90th birthday - so a very special occasion. We could not have asked for a better place to celebrate. A very good welcome from the staff and we were able to sit on the terrace. Although a little noisy from the road traffic and the occasional train this did not... More
