“A very pleasant dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I was told to go there by a very reliable source and I have to say I was very pleased with my dinner.

First of all, it has a good price range: i had no problem findind a few dishes under 15-16 Euros, both meat and fish, but there also were more expensive solution.
One might think that cheaper price will come with less quality but I really don't think so. In fact is more a matter of quantity and even there, I was not disappointed when I finished my 15-euro half rooster with fries and some apple-sauce that was really the surprise of the dinner: never heard of an apple-sauce coming with rooster and fries but I have to say it was great.

My missus had the inevitable mussel+fries combo (there were like 4-5 different prices for that dish) was very satisfied too.

As almost anywhere in belgium, no problem with beers and no problem with the check too: 31 euros totally for a very nice dinner right in the center of brussels.

“Better than others in Brussels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We had learned of this place from others as good and dependable especially for moules. We were not disappointed. The salad to start had a wonderful vinaigrette. Then the moules were in a light white wine sauce and were delicious. We were concerned that we might not get in as a party of six were turned away right in front of us but we were just two and were seated. At the end of dinner you are given a lollipop, their trademark. If you decide to eat it on the way home, all other restaurant maitre des know where you've been!

“Had to try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I had to try the food here after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. What is interesting is that this placed is established, and don't need to have a person outside the restaurant to get people in, like all the other restaurants in this very touristy area of Brussels.

We had lunch, and of course ordered mussels and fries, and it was good (compared to same fare at other places we tried on this trip). Our server was also very friendly and polite. Overall, it was a nice experience.
