Quaint little place, with bohemian decor. The food and service were superb. We had the set meal - Pate with a salad that included blackberry and melon and came with chutney - a mix of flavours we'd never had before but really worked. Then the beef stew which came with frites and apple sauce. It was just delicious and the... More

Looks very nice as you approach and felt pleasant as we entered and got a table. Thought the service was a little cold and unfriendlyish. We had a bag and a small plastic container deposited on our table and at first thought it was someone's logo'd doggy bag but then realised it was our logo'd bread and butter...(there's a lot...

The food was fine and the place very nice and cozy. Unfortunately we had a very bad experience with one of the waiters (we think he was the manager). He has given us a bad service, making joke of the three of us, when ordering the waffle cake taken in sharing. He served it with only one cutlery for three... More

Boutique restaurant just off the main shopping street. Small to look at (bigger inside). Great menu, & great food. Go hungry, portions are generous. Good local food, staff attentive & helpful & great value for money.

We booked a table on the recommendation of our b&b hosts. On arrival, we were sat in a tight corner and also, as we soon realized, by a heater that blew hot air onto our legs and up into our faces. The staff were pleasant enough but, as more customers arrived, they were very busy and we felt forgotten .... More

I'm still sitting in this restaurant and i haven't paid the bill yet, but I'm still so delighted about the Carbonades I've just had that i would definitely recommend it. Away from the most touristic places it could seems like a gamble, but you will leave happy!

Don't make the same mistake as us, we were persuaded to book here by the strong recommendation of our B+B host and we fell into the tourist trap. Service was cursory at best. Two slices of bread were thrown onto the table in a paper bag with a pat of butter in a sealed plastic pot, we have had better... More

What a delightful restaurant. Beautiful facade and intimate and cosy inside. Very nice, friendly and helpful staff - had a long chat to one staff member who had been to Australia. The food was super - the Flemish Beef Stew was amazing. Finished off with homemade ice cream. Enjoyable meal in cute surroundings.

Visited this place on the 25th of February. The welcome was fine, however we were seated upstairs and menus were almost thrown at us by a young jack black looking fellow. We proceeded to order from the pricey menu which included 2 bottles of water for the table at 4 euros for 500ml. When we were given our cutlery the... More
