This is a more then 100 years old restaurant located just before Brussels in a very nice village. The service is fast and correct. The dishes are typicaly Belgian and well prepared.

A favourite of those who have walked in the nearby woods. Decor hasn't changed in what seems like decades. A Brussels institution. But the food is home-cooking, excellent and at good prices. The waiters are jolly. On a fine day you can sit outside and...More

We were two couples, all four of us had a great meal off the 'suggestions' menu, including steak, lamb and fish (delicious St. Pierre). Highly recommended for an atmospheric environment and good service.

My daughters fancied a real Belgium meal so we ended up here and loved it. Steaks, mussels, carbonnades flamandes, all with great chips. A traditional brasserie with atmosphere, good food and efficient service.
