Great place, they took or order in no time and bring the order really fast, the service was very polite and helpful. The food was really good, and the beer recommended was a good choice for the food.

Excellent quality food - carbonnade was meltingly tender and full of flavour. Frites were crispy and perfect. Prices are reasonable for a restaurant in this location. Friendly helpful staff who spoke English (even though I started ordering in French...!).

This restaurant was not open on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, but it was worth the wait. We really enjoyed the flight of beers we had here. Worth the wait.

Came here for lunch and just had a croque monsieur each. Plenty of seating inside and out and the service was fast. Food was relatively cheap and ideal for a quick lunch stop.

We visited here for lunch during a short break in Brussels. We were looking for somewhere away from the busy shopping and sightseeing crowds around the Grand Place. We chose here as it was a quiet intimate restaurant, with a locally themed menu. We had...More
