I come here a lot as I live near Tervuren and there aren't many places around just to relax. Anyway, it's got a great location right on the lake, it's a nice place to eat outside when its warm and when it cold in winter the view is still spectacular. However, the view is the only thing to write home about. Every time I come here the staff just seem to want to get your order as quickly as possible and this is evident in their menu where is states: "at least 1 consumption per person per hour required" - ridiculous. The food is expensive for what it is, i only really come here for a cup of tea, or ice cream (okay I admit their speculoos is cream is actually really nice!) and to catch up with friends, but don't come here to be amazed, its below average but has the potential to be amazing. Oh on a plus side they do welcome dogs.

It is located just on the lake with a wonderful terrace from where you can appreciate all the nature of the park. Very nice view! Unluckily the menu is really poor and basic, without particular things. Moreover it's expensive and you should take a consumption every one hour (citation of the menu front page). Service is absolutely not the best. Stop to this place just for a quick drink, enjoy the view and go away to visit the park around .

Visited this place again, and was greeted with a smile on arrival - amazing! More than that, the waitress served us promptly, again with a smile, so it looks as if things are looking up. We didn't eat, but the food coming from the kitchen looked good, so I'm inclined to give it a try......... I'll report back.

Great in the week but can be a madhouse at the weekends, the foods okay and simple but rather overpriced, especially the water.

Ever seen a menu which says on the 1 page "at least 1 consumption per person per hour required"? That says it all!
Waiters are unfriendly, prices are high. To avoid!
