Polite and fast service, very good quality and full house, which is always a good sign. Restaurant environment is not the top one, but if you’re not looking for luxury, I can strongly recommend 👍

Very good moules frites; only surprise was large amount of veg in the pot with the moules meant that was difficult to get to the (very tasty) sauce. Extremely busy - recommend booking. Friendly service, coping well with how busy they were.

The mussels are amazing. Your order is delivered in max 15 min. Service is also 5 star. The place is not overpriced, 22 eur per portion of well-cooke mussels. Book the table quite in advance to get the table you want.

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.
