I can't thank the owner enough for our experience at Easter. Myself and my girlfriend did not speak much French or Dutch but the owner really did go out of her way to make us feel welcome and explain the menu to us as well as she could. Excellent service. Great lobster. Highly recommend to anyone, a real hidden gem!

As soon as you are seated in this cosy restaurant, you feel 'at home'. We were lucky to be able to eat outside on the terrace, but the restaurant itself also looks very nice. Most important thing to mention here: the king crab that they serve is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Loved it. Their lobster was... More

Some of the previous reviews slate the restaurant for having a limited menu, we were informed from the outset that the menu was solely lobster and were under no illusions going in. What fantastic lobster it was! In fairness, not a lobster connoisseur, but we thought the food was fantastic. A bit dear, although, probably not for lobster and for... More

For the people who like fine cuisine and lobster,the place to be! Small but cozy restaurant in cellar,with in summer nice terrace to sit at the border of the river. Few times we had lunch and dinner. Perfect! Owners are very nice polite and attend full.

The decor was suitably tasteful, and luckily the colour green really gets me in the mood for some lobster time. Staff were encouragingly discreet and only visible when called upon for more butter, which they were all too happy to provide by the literal bucket load! My one concern is about the coming of the lobster, mine seemed a little... More

We went there yesterday. We got a nice table overlooking the " Ketelvest". We had a wonderful starter (potato mash wrapped in smoked salmon - delicious) followed by an incredibly tasteful grilled lobster. With this lobster came a very mineral Austrian white wine. It was a perfect dinner, just simply perfect.

First of all, I go to lots of restaurant, it's part of my job, I have been literally to 1000 restaurant. This is the worst experience by far. I never actually write bad reviews because most of the restaurant try hard and it's a though business. But this restaurant never heard about hospitality and is really the worst I have... More

The menu is quite limited, but the lobster is well prepared. So if you are a fan of lobster, this is your place.

We went to the restaurant on a saturday evening and it was fully booked so were lucky to have a made a reservation. The choice on the menu is limited, so if you do not like lobster you should go to another restaurant. Sevice was very friendly and the food was excellently prepared.

We had a lovely meal in this tiny restaurant but there was not much else other than lobster - the clue is in the name! There is no choice of puddings - just the one house pudding. It was all delicious though and a real treat. We'd definitely recommend it and thought it had lots of atmosphere.
