We came without a reservation on a weekday but were greeted with a smile and seated at a nice table. Service was very friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. Fish was very very fresh. The restaurant has a parking, which is very convenient. We had an excellent dinner and will be back when we are in the neighbourhood again.

we are regulars at this restaurant since > 10 years. in recent years the quality is again on an uphill climb. their raw seafood bar is the best in the wide area, super fresh ! same high quality for the week specialties and wine list. this is a small gem in the Wavre area, well worth the visit.

Business lunch with a colleague. Had the volaille starter, followed by the mushroom risotto. Very nice interior, and attentive staff. Food was good without being impressive, would go again for the ambiance and location.

The resturant La Folle Epoque is will situated along one of the main streets entering Wavre. There is a beautiful terrace, besides an garden, where you can have lunch or dinner or just something to drink. The steaks are marvellous and spicy. Friendly staff.

Took 6 business colleagues to this place last week for an evening meal. Food was ok, but service was slow + not very friendly. No menu in English, and no offer of help with the various dishes. Don't like being asked for money by charity collectors during a meal. No plans to return to this restaurant.

Really nice place excellent service and very nice food. Properly cooked to our requirements the steak was excellent. As was the sea food choice. Mid range price I think. Worth a look. Was recommended by our business contact with good reason.

We come here nearly every time we visit our family in Wavre. High class, good service, pleasant staff. My husband had a simple steak - good quality meat. I had tomatoes stuffed with shrimp and Dame Blanche for desert - excellent. Not cheap but you get what you pay for!

I like this brasserie-style restaurant. I visited 2 times. It has a Paris-feel. Welcome and service are friendly and spot-on. Food and wines are excellent. Their oysters are fresh. Their fish is delicious. I have not tried meat dishes yet. Have a look at the deserts. There's free parking space next to the restaurant.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant as a change from their own excellent dining room. It is nicely laid out on three levels, with additional alfresco tables in fin weather. The service was high spiritedly jolly but professionally expert. We only wanted one course each but couldn't have eaten more whatever our intentions. Not everyone could finish their helpings. The steaks... More
