Very cosy place and good beer (Maneblusser). Try the homemade burgers with some wedges - you won't regret it!

Serves great fish and chips and beer, with a view of the Grote Square. Salad was interesting with flowers included. Fish very nice but small portions. Has to pay extra for tomato sauce. Efficient service

Fantastic food, great service and very nice view of the Grote Markt! I enjoyed a real good, slightly spicy fish and chips with one of their own dark beer. I can only recommend this place!
