We ended up going here twice during our short visit as the food was so impressive. We tried the chicken, steaks, and beef stew - and all were top quality, delicious and plentiful. Attentive quick service from the charming owner.

My wife fancied trying a local dish, Flemish Stew. She loved it. I had a lovely steak. This is a quiet place but highly recommended. Food and service top notch. Very authentic.

Only a few beers available and much more expensive than elsewhere. Menu had a few items off too, which was a shame. Limited choice. Average. And yes a smell of cigarette smoke from the back rooms....
