So my family and I live in Brussels and we had heard mixed reviews about this place. And we took the leap of faith and after a lovely walk in the Citadelle and walk in town we decided to have lunch at this place on less cloudy day in Belgium. So there are many things that are wrong with this... More

There is a sign at the front entrance; a disclaimer to the effect that the establishment is a restaurant and not a fast-food place. That said; I am happy the kitchen is not in whatever hurry some customers may be in because then the food would suffer. Clearly management is reacting to this and with good reason. Perhaps the outdoor... More

Just asking if we can sit on the terasse was to much for the waiter. He arrogantly denied and went to the next guest.

We stopped off at Dinant on our way to Charleroi airport. After visiting the Cathedral we stopped off for lunch here. There was a sudden downpour, so lots of people entered at the same time.This could be the reason why we waited ages for our food, the starter arrived after 30 minutes, and considering the fact that we had ordered...

Staff was a bit stiff but not unfriendly. Lunch was ok. Prices were not so cheap for the neighbourhood.

Take the tram ride up to the Citadel. Lots of history. Stories are told. Museum with artifacts on site. A gift shop and small restaurant on site. Beautiful views of Dinant, the river Meuse and the countryside.

We stopped here for a quick drink after visiting the Citadelle and sat outside, in the afternoon sun. The location is great for relaxing and watching the tourists walk by. The waiter serving us was clearly rushed off his feet but still managed to look after us and give us our drinks fast. A good place to visit for a... More

I went to this restaurant with my family. The food was good and the prices were decent. However, the service was terrible. I couldn't think of a more unfriendly restaurant. I am sure there must be some nicer and friendlier restaurant in the beautiful city of Dinant, so don't lose time going to this place. After all, bad service will... More

Can't comment on the food, as the waitress wouldn't serve us any. We sat at a table on the terrasse and the waitress grudgingly took our drinks order. We also wanted snacks, since it was 11.30am. When we tried to order food, we were told that they weren't serving any until 12pm. We were bewildered by this, as everyone around... More
