We come here on every trip back from the belgian coast. Very simple, nice service and good food quality overall. Make sure try out their meat dishes.

It's not fancy. It's not especially friendly. But it's usually packed. The steak and chips are great and they are consistently so. Not especially cheap but worth a visit.

Café de la Fôret is a nice Belgian brasserie which hasn't changed much over the years. It has a nice atmosphere with tables both inside, in the conservatory and on the pavement outside. When we visited, the service was friendly and efficient, but the food disappointing. My wife's jambonneau was hot on the outside, but cold on the inside, and... More

Been coming here for excellent Belgian food for 20 years - never disappointed. Home made shrimp croquettes, great steaks and traditional dishes.

I am an expat, living in Belgium for ten years already. After a while, you get used to a particular pattern: fantastic food, mediocre service. With that background, this restaurant stands out. Fantastic food (the usual in Belgium)... And atypically incredible, intelligent, sophisticated, hospitable... ...Service!

We have eaten here several times, with friends, and are never disappointed. The waiting staff are always good humoured and the restaurant is always busy. Mussels are a speciality but are quite pricey. The cheese croquettes are delicious. It serves a wide variety of Belgian dishes and some specials.

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

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 the best ever. It is... 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.
