Such a lovely, homely atmosphere is not the usual thing for a restaurant. We definately enjoyed our lunch which was the dish of the day : cauliflower souffle as a starter and beef with a white sauce and rice, as a main dish. The wine of the house was very good and charged by ...centimetres: You had your bottle, drink... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Brussels and one which never disappoints. It is set in a converted butchers shop and comprises three small rooms so a cosy atmoshpere is guaranteed. The menu is Belgo-French, elaborate without being in the least pretentious, and, even though I have a lot of dietary restrictions, I always find plenty of choice.... More

Why are some places so good? Attention to their customers, excellent food, wine, service and good atmosphere? Yes! That's it! Never fails

Yet another home cook having delusions of "grandeur"... The facts: a good half hour to have the menus on the table. Ten more minutes to have the first drinks. A waitress that would be more fit in a cheap brasserie... To make a long, very long (more than 3 hours...) story short: amateurish, incompetent and unpleasant service; home-cook level food... More

Since years I go to that restaurant and I was never disappointed. The food is just amazing. If you have the chance go there in autumn to discover the deer menu, that will blow your mind.

"Impeccable" in french is sort of spotless. The menu is interesting and all what we had was excellent. We had two different starters and two different main courses and they were top quality. The wine list is short, but very well selected. And then the service. Smiles over smiles make you feel really welcome. And 60 euros per person with... More

The restaurant is located in a quiet corner of a nice neighbourhood. The food is excellent and prices are reasonable for a fine dining experience. Dinner for two (two appetizers and two entrees, two 'aperitifs maison" and half-a-bottle of good wine) = 115 EUR, all taxes included. I call this a reasonable price given the amount of food, the quality,... More

Yes...the service was great, and In Brussels this is a great advantage. If you live or visit Brussels often, you know what I mean. The staff always have a smile and a recommendation. But that's not all, the ambience (an old boucherie) is very nice and cozy. And the food? Just superb! Why not 5-star?? It is a bit pricey... More
