Horse House Exp

One of the two best restaurants to go to if u enjoy a good horse steak. About a pound of steak on your plate, add to that a bowl of salad, a portion of french fries adn a good bottle of wine, what more could anyone that enjoys eating well desire? Prices are decent, figure about 30€ p.p. for a... read more

friends wanted to surprise me with a dinner in this horsesteak restaurant. I do not eat horse meat! the place is very simpel decorated, fast and furious service..loaded and we had to wait a longtime to get a small Table. Fortunately I could order a porkchop which was good. French fries and mayonnaise, simple salad...what could one do wrong here?... More

small restaurant but with lots of ambiance! Very tasteful horsemeat, fresh French fries.... Be entertained by the owner, but be prepared for some good laughs!

If you want a great piece of meat you will love it here. There are no frills, you pay for high quality meat and no faff. Its not cheap by most restaurant standards but its really cheap for a big tenderloin (the only cut they serve). Horse meat for those who haven't had it I would describe as somewhere between... More

At first glance the restaurant looks bizarre. It probably hasn't been renovated since the 1960s. Inside there are beautiful paintings of Belgian Draft Horses and empty horse harnesses hanging from the wall. Previous clients must have eaten them. It is definitely a no frills place. But if you want a good horse steak and fries at a reasonable price, no... More

Meat is really good, luckily, because it's the only dish on their menu. Atmosphere is a bit weird: impersonal service, loud talking personnel and a yelling cook. Also a negative was the extra charges for e.g. Mayonnaise (€2!).

I just read the other 5 reviews and have nothing to add. 500 gr of horse meat, delicious fries, limited wine list, no frills, family run business., fun atmosphere.

For a real horse steak please drop by, see beyond the "autentic" see old fashioned interior, but enjoy the meat with a beer!! Don't go there with people who like small portions and fat-free diets, they don't like it. Service is in a league of it's own, and very personal.

It's no shame, horse steak is delicious. This is the best steak in town. The atmosphere is fine, the food is superb and the price makes this a winner. And the Belgian fries are fresh as they are supposed to be (no fridge or frozen fries).

The young owner who took over business from "Grumpy Lowieke" surely kows how to entertain. He rules with loud voice and funny remarks, he even made Murrath, his right hand in the kitchen, sing for the guests. Now for the food: horse meat is the core business. You can choose between a filet of 350 or 500 gr or "schep",... More
