Great overall experience here. I had a steak with mushroom sauce which was delicious, and everyone at the table enjoyed their meal as well. Highly recommend trying this place!

A menu with real Belgian specialities. The effort to speak in French was very appreciated. A very nice dinner!

Had the Waterzooi à l'Ostendaise which took some time to be served but was well worth the waiting. The different fish tasted great and the vegetables (potatoes, leek, fennel) were really tasty. A very filling meal which left no room for dessert, but the tea...More
