Really lovely place serving all the traditional Flemish dishes as well a good choice of others. Located right on the canal next to a great bar with a choice of hundreds of Belgian beers. Great night out!

The food here is excellent, the mussels were the best! But don't go here if you're in a hurry...The service was slow, but very friendly! Very reasonable prices, we went back for lunch on the terrace, which was equally good!
