“terrible service, impolite waiters, lousy food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I was there with a group of 25 people for which we agreed a fairly decent menu price.
Without notifying us, they moved our reservation from the nice room in the front, to the back.

It took them about 40 minutes before they could even offer us a drink. And 60 minutes more before the (very simple) starter was served.

In all: foor was far below mediocre & allthough I eat out weekly in restaurants all across Europe, I have never experienced such impolite service.

To top the evening off, one of the waiters knocked over a bottle of red wine over one of the guests, but wasn't even bothered to appologize.

I will surely never visit again and advice anybody to stay far away from this restaurant.

“Second time, massive disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I had been to the place once before on a normal evening, it was empty and boring but got my drinks served well. This time, it was very different, my friend from dubai and me entered, the guy that came to the table, seemed the owner, spoke NO flemish NO english and BARELY french, and was rude and short in talk. We ordered a thee and a beer, but 30 minutes later nothing had been served yet although there was almost nobody in the place. The beer glass was filthy and dry (not as it is supposed to be in Belgium). Before midnight, on a friday evening, they came to tell us we had to leave, probably not happy with the fact we did not order dinner and their business isn't going well. What a difference with what it was before..

“A wonderful art nouveau gem, pity about the food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

The architecture and the decor are unbelievably beautiful. Unfortunately the food was below our expectations with very average dishes. We will return only for drinks.
