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

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.

Nothing fancy but very simple and honest food. A lot more quality than you expect from these prices.
