Great food, nice atmosphere. Came here for a beer, ended up eating a menu with Cannelloni, spekkoek, coffee... For a very affordable price!

A good combination of a pub and a restaurant. We went there to have dinner and were surprised by the cheap prices. You can get a three-courses meal for either 12 or 15 euros. The food was good and the service was nice.

We had lunch on the terrace during the week-end You can have a burger or a sandwich + coffee and tea for around 6-7 euros, which is really nice and not expensive The burgers were good, tasty and filled our stomachs pretty well, no need for fries! We were really satisfied given the price of the menus.

Walden has excellent salads and pastas. It is situated under the Dom and has outside seating which is lovely in the spring and summer. You can't beat it in terms of price and quality, the only drawback is that it's often very busy, so make a reservation!

We went there for lunch with our 3 children, although the place is a bar. But it's a restaurant too, which serves really good pub food. We had hamburgers, there were really really good. Even the kids said they were so much better than McDonald's (that's easy, but coming from a child... not an easy confession to make). Really healthy,... More

We were attending this place after visiting the nearby DOMunder to relax and chat. The place was full inside and it took the waiters some time to notice our presence. Unfortunately the service didn't improve too much later either.

This is a great place to sit down for a draft beer with some friends or colleagues after a hard day. The atmosphere is cosy and there are plenty of couches to sink into.

Tucked in the corner of the Dom Square you will find Walden Bar Restaurant. We have come here twice over the past 2 weeks as it is a great place to sit outside and watch the world pass by. The service can be a little slow, but that is because it is a busy little place. The inside is warm... More

Not so easy to get a table, this is a great spot with really great food. We spent an entire afternoon here relaxing and simply drinking beer. Loved this place!

You can easily get a spot on their terras but getting a drink is another story. Been sitting here for 50 minuten and moved to the neighbors to get served...
