“A hard to find restaurant, cute setting, avg food high prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We met with family at this cute restaurant tucked away in swanky Uccle. The restaurant is very intimate even for parties of 8 as we were. The food is decent however, as many restaurants in Brussels few do match their cost. The exchange rate of course does not help. The staff was very attentive and the locals who joined us loved it whereas we thought it was overrated in relationship to the price. They have outside dining as well however, the weather was not good enough for us to sit outside.

“One of the most friendly service I had in Brussels. Tasty food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2011

Went there last week while I was in the area.
The place is charming. Looks like an old café. I was very please with the service. The waiters were very friendly and helpful.
The food was nice too. I took some baked goose liver as a starter. They have different kind of steaks. I took the Irish beef which was very good. One of the best I had the last months.

“Marvelous place, especially when you could sit on the terrace....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2010

Had lunch here a while ago, this is really a nice place if you are in this area of Bruxelles. The whole atmosphere takes you years, decades back. The food is nice, the service is good. Very very nice place to go to. If the terrace is out, it is even nicer.....
