Nice Place to Dine

My coworker and I happened to find this restaurant by accident because most other places were closed because of a bank holiday. It was a pleasant surprise. We sat outside in a courtyard. Mussels are in season and my friend said that they were outstanding and I had a very tasty beef stew. We each... read more

I read the reviews and I took out my wife for her birthday on 08/5 for dinner. Very disappointing experience! I did not eat from what I've read. I mean what the reviews tell was not at all what you got on your plate. The taste was below average. French fries were flat and white = for Belgian restaurant =... More

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

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". First time I heard about this, but it refers to very typical Brussels/Belgian dishes like meat balls in tomato sauce. For sure we'll be going... More
