Du Progres is a very traditional Belgium restaurant serving the staple dishes of the area; a large emphasis on steak, some eel, frites and croquettes, plus Flemish stew and Waterzooi (with chicken). We had these last 2 dishes; the stew was flavoursome and tender, my wife found the Waterzooi enjoyable but a little bland. A dessert of Dame Blanche was... More

Had a filet steak....Belgian Blue. Asked for it to be cooked medium, but probably prepared more like medium rare, which was not a problem, as the steak was excellent. Service was very very good, and the meal hit the spot after a long day of travel. We were able to get a table for 3 as a walk-in on a... More

Du Progres is justly popular - we booked for a late lunch because it was full earlier in the day, and it was still full when we left about 3 pm. The menu is traditional brasserie fare, so don't expect surprises, but the quality is excellent, the service friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere warm. Highly recommended.

I went to the ‘Du Progres’ on a Friday evening with my family and I really enjoyed it. In the restaurant I found it a little bit too dark, but it was really cosy with very nice staff. We had three courses, I started with the shrimp croquettes then I took the Flemish stew and I ended with the crème... More

We stopped by to have a late lunch, and since it was past normal lunch-hours this place was perfect for us, since they serve food all day. It was quite a number of waiters and others working, so service was quick and they kept paying attention to us, helping us with our every need. They also spoke well english. We... More

Restored our confidence in Belgium cuisine. Great food and service and catered to the younger members of the family with children's menu, coloring activities and creative food presentation. The kids were chuffed! Cozy and friendly atmosphere.

The service was super good. With the cosy environment. Food was fresh juicy and warm. But lavatory was bad which is not really hygienic with all those people.

We were there with 8 friends and we had a good time! The food was amazing, especially the 'stoverij', it was the best one we had in our lives! Also the service was good, they were very friendly and there was no long waitingtime. Make a reservation for big groups!
