“Very bad service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

To be shouted at in front of a full terrace that if they could they would kick you to the other side of the square, told that you won't get served and that you should go elsewhere is bad. To do this to an 84 year old lady who only asked to amend an order is disgusting. The service in this place is absolutely appauling.

Halle is a lovely town with many nice restaurants, so my advice would be to steer clear from this one!

“Good food, but average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

Brasserie style food, good price/quality ratio.
Service could be improved.
But at the end, not a bad place to go.

“good food, bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2011

The terrace on the Grote Markt is nice, and the quality of the food good. However, the service was confused (to put it mildly). Certain dishes/options ("large dish") recommended by the waiter turned out to be either vastly overpriced (given portions), or were a rip-off (the "large dish" - at least the one we were served - seemed to be more or less the same portion as the standard one).

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2008

't Groot Café hasn't stolen his name: it's big! But that doesn't mean you get a lousy service or kantinefood, no! It's nice to sit @ 't Groot Café, just to drink something, or to eat a tasty meal. Very special: their brochettes, try them! :-)
