Together with my international friend I visited this place for lunch, which was a great idea. We enjoyed the food, the great service and the beautiful architecture. The only thing we didn't like is that it's so hard to make a choice since everything looks...More

Interior is cool. Then, very slow “service”. WiFi not working and the place is a noise nightmare. First and for sure last time.

After visiting various landmarks nearby we were in desperate need of a drink and Boon was the perfect spot for half an hour on a sunny afternoon. The drinks were lovely, restaurant was super cool inside and the staff couldn’t have been friendlier. LOVED!

A lovely place which, if it has any faults, I have been unable to detect them. Perhaps a little busy at peak hour? Fresh, tasty and healthy foods - quiches, along with salads featuring at least one type of bean (boon in Flemish). All accompanied...More
