Food was nic but whole experience was ruined by incredibly rude and disinterested staff (even by Belgian standards). We were told we had to leave after 1.5 hours as they needed the table, despite not being warned in advance. Loads of other options nearby so...don’t bother.More
I called in advance asking if it was possible to get some gluten free option for 2 people among a group of 5, and the owner accepted directly although it was not part of the menu. The dishes were really nice and we had a...lovely time in this cute little restaurant!More
Food was uninteresting and overpriced for what we got. On top of that my husband had food poisoning after eating the Tuna Tartar. Slow service but that was okay for us. Once it got full it was very loud. Staff very pleasant and nice atmosphere...but we will not be going there again and will not recommend it to anyone. There are so many good restaurants in Brussels and this is definitely not one of them.More

We have been two times now but are unlikely to return. The gin based cocktails are lovely, however the food takes ages to arrive and the size of the dishes is very small and the offer is simple, particularly considering the length you wait for...service.
We waited for 2h for our main courses to be served (3 x pasta based dishes, 1 x carpaccio), and only had one cold starter (meat plate) to share beforehand.
The place is small so with two kitchen staff and two front of house staff an efficient service should be possible...More
The owners are from Spain and Italy and they decided to combine their heritage in their cuisine. On the menu you can have anchovies con pan con tomate as well as pasta ragoutoni.
I had the anchovies... it’s was nice but I expected it to...be different and more consistent.
And the tuna tartare was delicious.
The pasta with gorgonzola and pear was divine.
The bread is amazing so don’t hesitate to ask for it :)More
