This is a nice local restaurant that serves food with passion. The ingredients are very nice and they prepare everything carefully. I like so much the ox tongue and cheek, so tender and tasty. The dessert trio is simply awesome.

Wonderful evening with work colleagues. Offal is not my first choice but the service was excellent and the recommendations from snails to kidneys and even horse steak were superb. Good wine recommendations also.

Very nice restaurant. Warm welcome by the hostess, nice atmosphere. Good service and we didn't have to wait long. The dishes are mostly Belgian classics but very well prepared. The 'tarte sucre' is one of the best desserts I ever had. Good quality/price. Listen to the tips of the hostess, she knows what she is talking about.

The ambient is very simple, in style with other places. Menu is not long but clear. Food is quite tasty. May get crouded but if alone no need to reserve ahead of time. If asked for water be aware that it is a bottled service. Fries with some meals may sound nice but may be sufficient. Great for a short... More

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
