I like the place. The bar and restaurant are very cool, artsy, while retaining and old tavern feel. Service was friendly, but very slow. The problem is their staffing. On a Monday night with eight tables seated, they were swamped. One server for the seven tables downstairs, with no additional bar help or bussing help. Got my first drink and... More

But a lot has changed : this used to be a marvelous music café as well, with live music on tuesay evenings and lot of belgian artists... More

I have been here a couple of times, and i still have mixed feelings about it. The quality of the meat it really good, that's undeniable. BUT, the portions are not satisfying (At least for me), i tried Black angus, ribs and brazilian steak, they were all very good, and they were all very small. Another thing that kills me... More

While working in Oostende I have eaten here several times, the ribs and steak are amazing. All cooked on the open wood grill, the steak has been cooked exactly to my order. The staff and atmosphere just make this possibly the best place to eat in Belgium.
