What a hidden gem......
We had the best steak and mussels ever, the service was great and the ambiance was so peaceful that you never want to leave......
Definitely worth a visit.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We came in the evening.

We had fillet and frites with the brandy sauce. Fillet very tender and cooked to perfection. The frites were so delicious and authentic Belgian style.

The garden is gorgeous and has a lovely atmosphere in the evening with the lights in the trees.

This is an ideal place to come to for couples who want a romantic setting.

The only thing that let it down a little was our waitress who didn't really seem very knowledgable on the menu and her social skills not too good.

One of the better Belgian restaurants in Strand. Balanced menu with mussels, steak tartare, vol au vent and the best Belgian Fries.
