It may not be easy to reach, but I promise you it is worth the adventure. Set in the middle of forest about a 20min drive from Brussels. You can reach it by bike, but we drove. Definitely one of the top 10 meals of my life.....mussels, wine, frites, family run, beautiful setting. Simple, down to earth and amazing all the way around!

Sixty years ago, this was a tiny pub in the middle of nowhere, at the border of the Hal wood, mainly serving kriek beer on tap, i.e. beer with sour cherry. Name still refers to the sour cherry beer.

However nowadays it has turned into a brasserie/restaurant. Still pretty informal, not hugely expensive, but with a reputation and, looking at how many people were there for lunch last Thursday, with a very loyal customer base.

In season, mussels are the specialty and they are excellent. There are way too many tourist traps serving mussels around Brussels. This place is not one of them, and it clearly is one of the best.

However the place is impossible to find if you don't know where it is and you are not familiar with the area. There are three or four different ways to get there, but there are no signs, and they all are on narrow country roads.
