Visited the hotel with a business group. Food was good and delivered efficiently. Nice touch to have a number of drinks such as calvados, cognac on the house to finish.

Very good simple dining. massive menu of mussels, a few alternatives, all good; the usual Brussels desserts, limited wine list. Way above the average tourist trap, but definitely not fine dining.
