We had a meal on Easter Monday evening when you would half expect the restaurant to be quiet but it was packed in there. It looks and feels quite formal but there was no need to dress up. My French is not the best and fortunately one of the waitresses was on hand to help translate but I'm sure we... More

This is a rather simple restaurant but with excellent quality. When you want to taste 'real Belgian' then go here.

This place is definitely the best place in Hoeilaart for a steak. Very homely place and the service is good too. You may need to book at the weekend as it is often packed out...

Go there for a superb "Eel in green" recipe. Among the best I ever had. Personally it's my favourite but only for this dish. Also very nice "preskop" cubes coming as a snack with the 'aperitief'. Nice local pancakes for dessert. (crepe suzette). Great Irish coffee. Another day went back for some game but was not convinced about that. I'll... More

A "typical" non-snooty Belgian restaurant one might normally not consider entering based on the plain look of the building: the place was founded in 1954, and it shows. Get over it: the food was truly delicious and very plentiful: nothing fancy, but good quality and taste. We had and can recommend the "croquettes de crevettes" as appetizers and the "côte... More

A friend of mine invited me there to taste their Paling in 't Groen. And it was very good one and I got lots of it too. The garden outside doesn't look like a garden and inside it's also a bit outdated, but if all the food is at the level of mine, than it is an aanrader. (The blue... More

This place is renown for its humongous portions of decent red meat and the eels in green sauce. The ambiance leaves a bit to be desired, as the furniture is kind of like garden furniture style, but this place is about food quantity (and decent quality). Vegetarians can feel displaced here.
