Great food, great service and waiter at your service. Oh the Mussels. Totally, one of the best items to select - seasonal - when offered. I am a frequent visitor for dinner. Reserve early.

They have a nice gin selection as aperitif. Very good traditional Belgian food, with seasonal suggestions. The specialty of the house is 'stoemp', always nice! This time i had the horse steak

The restaurant has a very nice setting, and excellent menu specials. The service is good and attentive. The brazilian steak was excellent and the fries (which are handcut) are simply amazing! One of the best places to go for lunch/dinner in Vilvoorde
