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

we came into this restaurant just because we need a drink. located close to the other restaurants, such as Zorba, this restaurant is not to compete in terms of menu. the other restaurants offer greek and steak based. we like the ambience, and open glass top to feel that we are in the garden. beer is good. we go for...

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.

It is more a tavern as a restaurant but THE food is also very good There. It was Nice because we wantend to sit outside as it was a warm summer afternoon. Over THE weekend it is very crowdy and you might not Find a place and do not know if you have THE possibility to make reservations.

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

This restaurant has a nice setting and a great terrace. Our lunch here was not that great, though. Very average. The homemade hamburger was very dry. it had half an onion on top, badly cut (I mean literally an onion chopped in half). The croque was small, not enough for a good meal. The salade niçoise had lots of celery... More
