Visited this restaurant on a weekend getaway. Wanted to share a large portion of mussels which cost 31€ and was told, She won't like that. No, you can't do that. Whoever she is...Very rude waitress. The mussels almost broke my tooth from all sand in the mussels but the old bitty said it was pepper. Atmosphere was very stuffy. If... More

I have been in this restaurant with some friends. The reviews I had read were good in general. One of the specialities were mussels. We ordered one dish as starter.

There is nothing at all special about their mussels (I had them served "natural"). In fact, the broth (bouillon of the mussels) was far from good which usually hints towards lack of proper recipe/preparation of the mussels in general.... More

Ok, so you're in Belgium and you're going to try a speciality dish right? Let me tell you you will be hard pressed to find a restaurant in Belgium that does better mosselen/moules/mussles than this one! Which is odd, because we're not close to the seaside! Trust me, i live in this town so I am taking it for granted... More

Well, I got a little bit concerned with the service when I just ask for a beer while I'm choosing what to eat, the lady said to me "the place is a restaurant", sounds like, if you want to only drink, move your as* out!

The interior is simple, but therefore the "moules"or the"mossels" are superbe! It's the belgium national food, with belgium frites and a good beer!! Delicious!!!
