Having read on tripadvisor that the place was popular and often crowded with locals coming to have dinner, we went there early at 6:15 pm. The kitchen wasn't wholly ready yet, the friendly waiter asked if we were in a hurry, which we weren't, so we sat down.
The chef's suggestions were written on blackboards on the walls, small notices on the tables - decked in homely red checkered table cloths - encouraged clients to look them over, we did and ordered half a dozen creuse oysters each, followed by riz de veau (sweetbread), quite delicious, so at the end had no room left for deserts. The demi-sec cider they served was excellent too. All of this for € 85,- for my wife and I, quite affordable. Prices of other items on blackboard were lower than that of the sweetbread.
They claim to have been in business since 1771, the atmosphere is cozy and friendly, many families come to have their dinner together, which is a good sign, nothing snobbish about the place.

Recommended by tour guides and drivers on trip. Used restaurant twice for evening meals on a four night stay at local hotel. Fills up by 20.00hrs by locals. Excellent choice a la carte, specials and fixed menus for lunch, dinner and children. Belgian\french food with emphasis on Belgian. The desserts are to die for.

We were on a WW1 battlefield tour and on our first night we went to La Cloche on the recommendation of Trip Advisor reviewers. It was a typical Belgium restaurant, which we wanted, and there were a lot of local people eating there (always a good recommendation).
There were red gingham tablecloths and a really lovely cosy atmosphere. The menu was great and included some very good value set menus.
We loved it so much that we went there on our last night as well.

We were staying in Mouscron for 4 nights on a World War 1 battlefields coach tour and were told by our guide this was a good place to eat.
We were delighted with this recommendation. There is a very good choice of dishes and several excellent value fixed price menus and a specials board. We were offered English menus and the service all round was excellent. Food was delicious with good portions and bread was served without charge. The restaurant was quite busy with a lot of locals and there was a steady stream of diners arriving throughout the evening.
The restaurant has lots of tables in partitioned dining areas which makes it feel more atmospheric. We enjoyed it so much that we returned on our last evening. Definitely recommend this for it's all round dining experience.

When you live in London and visit a restaurant in Belgium you expect quality ingredients, good flavours, and a feeling of comfort. Exactly what lunch was here. Lovely steak tartare washed down with a great medoc. Not forgetting the lovely Pecan vin as an aperitif.
