We visit regularly this restaurant in Stokkel. Having a 2 year old I always look for restaurants which make us feel at home and which make my son feel most welcome. The food is great and every time we visited we always were amazed by the high quality of the food presented and the friendly staff.

Restaurant is child and dog friendly. Food is very good and waiters are very pleasant. They have a good children's menu with plenty of food. Cost of dinner for 4 adults and 1 child with drinks included was very reasonable. Would recommend it.

The food is excellent. Try the sole meunière, one of the best I've had. The filet américain is also really good if you like raw meat. For dessert you must try their pancakes. Service is excellent and staff really nice. Ask for a table in one of the verandas. The main part is a little old and stuffy, the veranda... More

Frozen food, bad service, questionable hygiene! We ate here because of our proximity to work. The freshness of the food was definitely at question, the menu choice was mediocre! We will never eat here again!!

Very disappointed, we will never go to this restaurant. Service terribly slow. The staff (2 men) were very impolite. The worst service ever!!! I don't think if there is any manager at this restaurant.

It's a very nice setting in a nice place and the deco is good. It was nice weather and we managed to sit outside. I would love to have written 'Very Good' but I'm afraid I can only manage 'Average'. When a waiter tells me "we don't do tap water in this country, you'll have to have bottled" - I'm... More

The first time I went on a business meeting to this restaurant to have some drinks with a colleague. I couldn't believe that the staff were so rood and impolite. We had to wait 30 minutes for 2 simple drinks. The restaurant is in a nice area so I though I should try it again maybe I was wrong. I... More
