A very nice place, clean, with relaxing canvas on the walls to enlighten the atmosphere (full of people when we came) and some home-made decorated tables giving an additional touch of personality. The service was perfect, the kind waitress gave us many information, dishes and...beverages arrived quickly. The food was very abundant and delicious, the meat perfectly cooked (we took the carbonade and the chicken salad), tastes balanced and no greasy at all! Really recommended, especially the tables outside in this hot Belgian summer!More

A very good Belgian restaurant! A lovely place to eat a great carbonnade! Went there twice and it was always very good, I recommend the small terrace in sunny days!

I don't think the place needs any more good reviews, as they seem to be already quite famous. Nonetheless, I would like to leave one, to mark the best restaurant I went while in Brussels. Although there was a queue when my group arrived, it...moved quite fast and it was definitely worth the wait (+-15 minutes). The food was delicious and the service was quite good and friendly. The meat was cooked nicely and was quite tender. I definitely enjoyed every single bite and I would be quite happy to return here when I'm back in Brussels! I definitely recommend coming here if you are in Brussels and want to try Belgian food! The quality/price ratio is excellent in my opinion.More

One of my favourite restaurants in Brussels. Tasty Belgian cuisine, nice decor and good staff. The only downside at the moment is that they do not take bookings, so getting a table is a gamble because it is a popular restaurant!

Definitely worth a stop. We came for a late lunch and ended up eating so much, we skipped dinner. The prices are good and the quality is excellent. What you will find on the menu here is primarily regional dishes. We went with the Lapin...a la Kriek (Rabbit with Kriek beer sauce) and the Beef. The rabbit is a dish we’ve seen on many menus and although I have not had rabbit a lot prior to coming to Belgium, I can say I’ve had it several times here. The version here is very good and with the amount of stoemp they provide on the side, I could not finish it all. The beef was also well prepared and very flavorful. We did not try the sausages here although questioned that when we got our food and saw all the orders flying out to other tables. I’ve also had the Stoemp and Sausages in Belgium and it’s some of my favorite ever so here is probably a great option as well. The portions are so huge, we could not possibly have room for dessert so cannot help out with any recommendations there. This is a very popular place that does not accept reservations so when you plan to come could make a large difference. We arrived about 2-3 PM and got right in. We were by here eating at another place nearby another night and saw a line of about 40 people at about 8 PM.More

We wanted to like this more than we did. The portions were just overwhelming for all of us. Three of us got ribs, one a Babette (which was requested med-rare but had some very rare parts) and one the beef beer stew. Flavors were good,...but just too much!! We felt bad leaving half of our food behind. The place is cute and we liked the service. Cash only.More

Traditional Belgian food. We had the carbonnade and the jambonneau, both were well cooked and incredibly tasty. The service was excellent. They don’t take reservations so we had a drink outside the restaurant for about 15 minutes before we got a table. Would definitely recommend.

This is a real local Belgian restaurant. It has both inside and outside dining. The large inside room has old mismatched wood tables but do not judge based on the décor. The food was fabulous and well priced. Be prepared to stand in line.

This restaurant was ideally located round the corner from our hotel. We decided to come on our first evening in Brussels and what an excellent choice it was! The restaurant itself was really cosy and inviting, as were all the staff. Service was quick but...you didn’t feel rushed! Both our meals were excellent in particular the lamb, this was outstanding. Wouldn’t hesitate to return if we’re ever in Brussels!More

Welcoming environments to discover the Belgian cuisine. Waiters help you to pick the right dish and open to have a good chit chat in the meanwhile: I had a nice conversation with one of them but I saw they do like to speak with people...generally! I had “Carbonnade a la bière”, which was tender and well cooked. I’ll be coming backMore

We really enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. I had the Stoemp and Saucisson, my wife had the ham hock with baked potato and mustard sauce. Both were really good, generous portions and very tasty. We also worked our way down some of the Belgian...beers on offer. The staff were great and really helpful in picking the right beers for us. Thoroughly recommended!More

The seating is quite busy in this restaurant, making it quite difficult to have food with small kids (less than 5yrs). If the kids are a bit older, it should work.
