No fuss brasserie

This is an ideal place for a noisy family lunch, there were 20 of us including 7 very young children, the waiters coped with the mess, the confusion and the noise without batting an eyelid, very professional, thank you all. The steak tartare was a great success with most of us and the chips were... read more

Everything about this place is perfect...ideal location, incredibly accommodating and friendly staff, wonderfully prepared delicious food at a very reasonable price. We haven't been here and a year and the staff made us feel like regulars...we love this place and will be back sooner the next time!!

I was not too impressed with the food from this brasserie. I ordered the set of 3 small soles (solettes) with frites. At €22 not a bad deal from quantity point of view but fish was ok and certainly didn't seem super fresh. Frites also looked to be frozen. Was surprised thought that they offer real Moroccan style fresh mint... More

I am Belgian and really like belgian traditional restaurants. I have rarely come across such a bad Belgian restaurant. The food was over cooked served from cans. The soup was the worst I ever tasted. This was such a disappointment.

Our dinner here with friends on a recent Saturday evening reminded me of everything there is to dislike about "typical" Belgian restaurants, such as: - Being ignored by the waiter while he spends ten minutes visiting with regulars sitting at the next table. - Waiting 45 minutes between the starter and the main course. - Being served the wrong dish,...

I popped in for evening meal and chose la Foret over other local eateries as it was busier than them. The choice is good, the service courteous and friendly by apron-clad waiters, pricing is reasonable, and the fondant au chocolat is to die for!
