After waking up with a horrible cold really didn't feel like going out but had already made the reservation so dragged myself along. Glad I did as the Flemish Stew was superb and this combined with a couple of Belgium beers, well chosen by our waiter Jörgen, were the perfect antidote to my cold. My partner had the Steak James...

Good service and steaks - although they ignored our request for a rare T-bone steak by telling us we wanted it medium, when we made clear we didn't, and then, when it arrived more cooked than we wanted, and they could see our disappointment, they offered to cook it even more! They obviously treatred us like that because we are... More

I booked online through the link on Tri[p Advisor as we were visiting on a Saturday night. I would recommend booking at busy times as if we had not done so we would not have got in here. The service was excellent, I booked for 8pm and as we were still enjoying a drink in the many nearby bars I... More

Fantastic food and very very good service! Will go back again. I was there during the winter and I think it will be ever more fantastic during the summer with the windows open:)

We popped in on the off chance on a chilly Wednesday February night and only had to wait about 5 or 10 mins for a table. Seeing the restaurant full was a good sign as others we had passed were virtually empty. I had the smoked salmon starter (far too big!) but very good. My partner helped with that as... More

Three visits in 48 hours should tell you all you need to know. I really can't rate this restaurant highly enough. The food is amazing, local delicacies served in vast portions with wonderful beer and wine. Yet the staff make the place just simply perfect. I cannot fault a single element of their service. Coping with our four children, entertaining... More

Ate here on recommendation from friends, and can't comment highly enough. We had excellent stovrij, (as good as that made by my Belgian aunt), and very good soup. The attention we received from staff was excellent, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Do go!

Some places are linked with the city-so is du progres...-quality for money-very typical old fashionned place and ambience-delicious classical plates, especially during hunting season-a must have been!
