“Excellent Burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

These burgers were the best! Everything from the toppings to the bread to the fries to the wine was perfect! I had the foie gras one and was not dissapointed with the choice. Its was generous on the foie and nice and juicy!

“Good burgers near the european commission headquarters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Small new resto which prepares homemade hamburgers (both meat and bread are homemade). Served with fries and small salad. Nice choice of toppings. Service is quick (but not superquick). Bill is OK even if, in my opinion, the burgers could cost a couple of euroes less. Best to reserve as it gets full easily.

“Just Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

Youthful and pop interior, mediocre service, rather average tastes. I had the dish with the mini-burgers, -different kind each of them-, which was tasty enough but not so much as make me visit the same restaurant again.
It is good to use organic ingredients, as this restaurant claims to be doing, but this alone is not enough...

“Low on the quality cost ratio.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012 via mobile

Liked the place (decor, beer list, ambiance) and the ethos (good bio ingredients) but was already a bit shocked, that all but the basic burgers were +/-20€.
Wasn't too happy when one of the american regulars came in after us, but was already served his aperitif before we were even asked what we wanted.
The buns may be home made, but ours were dry on the outside. The fries may be hand cut, but ours were mostly bits and dry as sticks.
We all ordered medium burgers and that worked for 2 out of 3. The 3rd was very well done and over dry. To be fair they did offer a cookie/brownie dessert as compensation.
So nearly there, but at that price they could and should do better!

“Best burgers in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

A place run by good product lovers. Food is bio, buns are home made. Burgers come in all types of creative forms, always juicy and tasty. The bonus are the freshly cut french fries. A winning combination !
