Had a dreadful experience. First one of the wait persons didn't seem keen to serve us. Got ahold of the other and all went smoothly. My wife who has good French ordered for us. One of the party had to leave, suddenly ill, but we cleared it with the waitress and she clearly understood one of us no longer required... More

Q. What sort of restaurant serves two of three customers a main course and then announces that they can't serve the other customer because the chef has gone home? A. Not one that I'd recommend. Unforgivably rude!

We were looking for a place to have some lunch and La Citadelle seemed a good option. Unfortunaly it was not! The food wasn't bad, it was the service that wasn't very nice. I don't think the waiter enjoyed his job very much. I would have given it 3 stars, but because of the bad service I only give it... More

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...
