They have a nice gin selection as aperitif. Very good traditional Belgian food, with seasonal suggestions. The specialty of the house is 'stoemp', always nice! This time i had the horse steak

The restaurant has a very nice setting, and excellent menu specials. The service is good and attentive. The brazilian steak was excellent and the fries (which are handcut) are simply amazing! One of the best places to go for lunch/dinner in Vilvoorde

My colleagues and I received a recommendation from a Belgian friend to try Tante Germaine and it did not disappoint! Everything about the restaurant was perfect from the outstanding staff to the beer and food. The mussels were excellent and the frites were hand cut and could not have been more delicious. Another colleague ordered the steak and it was... More

Small restaurant in the center of Vilvoorde, you have to look well to find it. Great food for a very decent price. Best steak I had in years. The restaurant focuses on the "Brussels cuisine".

We went to eat here last Tuesday night. Run by a young couple, its honest cooking at reasonable prices. They had all the flemish favourites, i had the niertjes with a mustard sauce and my wife had steak tartar. Both were good. Maybe they need to pay a bit more attention to detail. We will go again, book ahead.

Try the "ballekens in tomatensaus", a local specialty, or some of the other dishes. This is a wonderful restaurant with a great service. Top value for money.
