“good lunch, great friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This restaurant was previously in the old Christchurch Council buildings which was a great period type venue that suited the fittings of the bar ought from Belgium. However having moved due to the earthquake and lost a little of the character building, it has lost nothing of the good atmosphere created by the food, the beer and of course the staff. I went to lunch here and was met by the friendliest and most humorous staff who showed us to our table. Extensive list of Belgium beers to say the least and recommendations on which foods to have with them. Mussels and frites on the menu in numerous choices of flavour and cooking style as well as other main menu items and daily specials. I had the grilled salmon salad which was very good although i felt a little more salmon may have been more appropriate. The beer can be fairly strong (up to 10%+ so be careful if you are driving. I stopped at one but could have easily savoured another 2 or so.....in short, well worth a visit and to enjoy everything on offer....
