“Very good Belgian Restaurant with a Plethora of mussels varieties”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Great, friendly service, good value and brilliantly executed moules. The chips were brilliantly Belgian, crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. My moules were recommended by the house and were excellent. Enjoy with one of the draught beers and good bread basket.

“Well worth the walk !”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Wanted somewhere a bit different away from the mediocrity of the Grande Place and certainly got it here. Its a bit out of town tucked away up a side street but still walkable and you wont be disappointed when you make it there (Probably only a shortish taxi journey if you prefer)

Has an excellent 29 euro three course menu with loads of choice. I think it also has a 4 course at about 35 euros or you can just eat off the carte. Place is busy with lots of atmosphere even if we were in the middle of the dining area which was a bit of a busy thoroughfare for the staff. Lots of what appeared to locals and regulars in there and pleased we booked as lots of walk ins being turned away on a Saturday evening !

First class seafood cassolette de fuit de mer. Croquettes de crevettes OK but a bit bland. Both had mussels for main course (although there is plenty of other stuff to choose from). Two huge pots of delicious piping hot mussels served with home made chips and bread. Both types of mussels were delicious and Mrs couldn't eat all hers ! Desert for her and assiette de fromage for me which was a huge portion. Couple of beers, bottle of wine, complimentary digestif about 80 euros. For the British amongst you that's just over £30 each at todays rates which we thought was excellent value. Service good and no probs at all if your French is cr*p!

Nice informal lively atmosphere with nice people and good food. Overall a very enjoyable dining experience. Would definitely return.

I think this place is typically Belgian (although no expert but just felt it!)

“Great food, great service”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic. I have eaten Mussels everywhere and the House Mussels with ginger, garlic and white wine are one of the best things I have ever tasted. Great service, the servers went above and beyond. It will become a regular stop whenever I am in Brussels
