Several people recommended this restaurant and we were glad we visited. It seemed as though we were the only tourists dining that night. The mussels, fish and rabbit dish were all delicious.

This is a typical somewhat touristy mussels place by the canal near St. Catherine's church. We each had the mussels in white wine which were tasty but unexceptional, and frites that were good. Service was fine. This is a very casual place, not at all...More

The restaurant was recommended by hotel staff, so we were a little bit sceptical about it, and cheese crocquetes only worsened the situation (skip them at all costs, if possible). But then came the main courses, the mussels and the eel. Oh my, what a...More
