Tucked away in an old butcher's shop you'll find a great meat restaurant. Not just a wide range of sometimes exotic steaks, but the full range of pork, veal, beef, …… Nice cuts and offal. Traditionally prepared and served in a relaxed, friendly way. Great toast rillette, very nice onglet.

Coming here we knew that the cuts of meat would not be your average steak. This restaurant serves both kidneys, liver, tongue and brains - and it's wonderful! We absolutely loved it! We had a lovely evening and not least because of the skilled waitress who guided us through the menu. We ate kidneys, brains, liver and all of it... More

We had cervelles and marrow appetizers and sweetbreads regular and lamb as mains. All were carefully prepared. The cervelles were served cold with a tartar sauce that set off the creaminess. The marrow was perhaps the best I have had as they were not loose and runny but kind of a soft boiled eggs consistency. The sweetbreads were individually sauced... More

If you are looking to eat some tasty tripe, this is the place to go in Brussels! The chef is a passionate who loves sharing his traditional dishes. He really puts his heart and guts to it :-))) The restaurant atmosphere (black and white) certainly matches the menu. The only down side was the service that was a bit amateur.... More

Visited here whilst on holiday with my partner, the restaurant is very clean and well presented. We were met by an english speaking waitress who could not have been more rude in her approach though. She constantly made us to feel smaller than what was on offer... the menu delivers extremely diverse and tasty options but instead of explaining and... More
