Once I overcame the rather stern greeter at the door (he asks if you want to eat; if you say you just want to drink, you are sent out the door) and got seated, I found the decor and the hefty menu very enjoyable. Our server was a jolly man with odd but pleasant sense of humor. Their specialty beers... More

The food was really not very nice. I am not typically fussy but I couldn't eat the shrimp croquettes that I chose to start, and the sea fish dish I had for main was just average. The staff did not seem happy an the heating they have in the outdoor part means it's too hot to bear when it's on... More

We had the beef stew. It was just sublime, I have never tasted such a god stew in my life. We were all gobsmacked - no one was talking, the only noises from our table was 'mmmm' every time someone took a bite. The atmosphere is very quaint. It's down s small street, as you turn the corner and see... More

We had an excellent meal here and found the staff friendly and helpful. We only had the main course as knew the portions were generous but wish we had had room for dessert as well. We had the beef stew and the fish stew, both local specialities. They were freshly cooked and delicious. This is an unpretentious restaurant with excellent... More

It's nice to try some of the local food, but not in a cramped environment where the simpler food accompanying the main dish is not up to standard for what claims to be a first class restaurant. The restaurant is small and to maximise potential revenue no doubt, so are the tables, which are crammed in. When the restaurant is... More

Last Saturday, 14-11-2015 had dinner at this restaurant. I myself had the Flemish 3-course menu, wives at a-la-carte ... after and for main course we sat for over 30 minutes waiting for ordering the dessert ... For more than 35 minutes there was no waiter so I didn't have the the chance to talk to someone ... but then walked... More

Stumbled upon this place just off one of the main shopping streets. Down a little side alley, all lit up with white lights, looked so inviting on a cold evening. Walked in without a reservation -- didn't think we'd get a table because it was so busy. Once again, we were the only English speakers there, but it was nice... More
