I stayed at this hotel, and therefore I ate there as well. The asparagus were good, well cleaned, soft and nice to eat. The salmon was also okay. But the dessert. Oh. The dessert. I forgot what the official term on the menu was. But it contained chocolate in dough in a porcelain cup. And icecream. But the chocolate was... More

Went there with 16 friends, we've made a reservation -and- specified beforehand what each of us wanted to have. The location itself is very common, looks more than an canteen than a restaurant. Even if some decorative items and lit candles are present. We were seated in the veranda, next to the entry door. It was quite cold outside and... More

There are 2 Lodges. We ate at the restaurant which is part of a very exclusive Hotel. the other one is just opposite and more a tavern. Very good food, excellent service. Very suitable for families with children. There is good space between the tables and a playground next to the outside terrace. I visited twice, both times with a... More

Evening meal with a group of five Non-Belgians. We turned up en masse and a table was swiftly arranged for us. Outdoor seating area was pleasant and well sheltered by trees/hedges but still with enough sun. When the weather turned another table was quickly sorted indoors. The lovely waitress recommended Belgian specialities from the menu for both food and beer.... More

Pretty bad price/quality: meat was very though, sauce was almost liquid, waiters forgot our order and the rain was seeping in. Only reason I come here: nice terrace and in the vicinity of the univeristy. Ok for drinks, but will not eat here again.

OK to have a coffee when strawling in the Arenbergh park, or for an occasional quick "steak and fries" lunch. No particular pros or cons.

My companion asked the permanent waiter to not garnish my plate as I am not supposed to eat uncooked food during pregnancy in order to protect the baby against possible infections. The permanent waiter responded very coldly to this and demanded what I did not want with my pasta dish. So I explained to him that I did not want... More
