Excellent food, excellent service. Waiters were courteous & very prompt. Provided good recommendations for the wines. Goose foie gras was to die for, cheese plate very good as well. Not cheap, but felt it was good value for the quality of the food. The place fills up, make a reservation, or get there early and try your luck!

Without a booking, at first we thought it was ok, being placed just inside the open door, but the restaurant never got even nearly full. When the waitor opened our wine at the table, he dropped the foil - and just kicked it under the table (!). After the approval of taste, the waiter managed to sling the wine all... More

We went back for the superb beef in pastry we tasted last time we visited this restaurant. What a dissapointement. The food was nice, but overprised. But the service was terrible. Waiters arguing the whole evening next to our table and then being rude because we didn't leave a tip. For that price you would expect decent service. Sad to... More

Food ok but service was poor; the waiter was perfectly nice but the young guy taking the orders was rude and unpleasant; if they do not like people they should move to another job; I will not be back, ever.

We hand a very nice dinner and the food was marvelous. But definitively the restaurant need to improve the service. 1. As not everybody is fluent in French, the restaurant should provide the menu in English or at least the waiters should be able to explain the menus in English 2. The service was really careless and never asked for... More

The food was okay, but since it was very pricey, it made the food average. If I buy a meat dish, it would be nice to get some vegetables instead of only fries. Second, with a beautiful Dutch name, the restaurant didn't bother to print menu's in Dutch or English, although their menu in just a piece of paper. My... More

We were a group of 12 persons and I added the mark like an average for all of us. It seems the restaurant has on Michelin star and in my opinion only because of the food. It is not cheap, the space is small and noisy.

Our concierge at the Hotel Amigo recommended this hidden gem ( to tourists ) for dinner. It's in a hard to find little nook in the Galerie des Princes just off the Grand Place square. They serve very traditional Flemish dishes that are cooked perfectly with a touch of French flair. They speak little English and they do not have... More

My best meal of my 2 week trip. Food was wonderful and service perfect. The seafood was perfectly cooked. (I am in the seafood biz). I will go back.

Pricey but located in central Brussels. I had the Salmon served with mixed vegetables and small potatoes. The sauce which is true French was delicious! At 7pm we were first in the establishment but by 8pm every table was filled. The noise level can be bothersome since you are seated inches from the next table. During our visit a house... More
