A thoroughly excellent place to experience traditional Belgian cuisine at it's best. Lovely steaks and a wide selection of mussel dishes. Excellent service and good wine list - not cheap but worth it.

It was extremely cold inside as the door of the restaurant was open, several guests were complaining. The boss (probably the owner) was rude and extremely unpolite as he kept leaving the door open, when the guests were feeling cold. Old-fashioned but stylish interior design. Good food, professional staff.

Elegant surroundings -- despite the warm weather and the possibility of dining outside we preferred indoors -- at mid-range prices. I would have expected higher prices given the environment. A good list of Belgian beers, and an equally fine wine list, The menu offers various options but we went with the Flemish. We both had the beer stew which we... More

We ordered a steak medium rare which came well done and chewy. Salmon was eatable though but totally not worth the money. We waited long for food. Drinks we ordered never arrived at the table. We booked a table on a terrace which we did not get. Had to sit inside where was a lot of flies. Never ever again.... More

One of the best dinners I had in Europe... So much that I came back on my last night. The fries, just the fries are worth a come. On top of that, the fish and the rabbit were so well cooked, juicy, respectful of the natural flavors yet very well seasoned... Did I mention the fries? Ask for them with... More

13 of us had dinner here last weekend. The waiter suggested to make things easier for the kitchen that we order 5 different dishes ie 3 people had one dish, 2 another etc. In the end we ordered 6 and got prompt service. The potatoes (fries/croquettes/gratin) were served in larger bowls down the middle of the table for sharing. Large... More
