Use this regularly as a meeting point with friends, as the terrace means you can sit outside, and park bikes/dogs in front easily! Its good for a drink, maybe a salad or something to pick at.

Food is generally ok, but overpriced, and some very hit and miss desserts. Coffee's good.,Unfortunaely the service is not. They seem to make a point of ignoring foreigners, and as its popular with locals, they seem to think that's fine. But considering there are rather a lot of us in this commune seems a rather strange policy to adopt.... They dont have much competition in the evening in Stockel as most other venues are restaurants, and the terrace is really nice, so I guess they'll continue to get business.

Service...any service was difficult to near to impossible. When we did get some service, it was impatient and less than really helpful.

the wine we chose was quite good though nothing exceptional. We didn't try to order anything exceptional so...all good. The view through the glass awning (greenhouse) is really nice but doesn't make up for a disappointing experience overall.

A bit of a snob place for "nice" people... But then, there aren't many such terraces in WSP.
Pleasant for a drink outside in the afternoon sun, a bit expensive for food while there are some much better restaurants in the area.

Classic brasserie fare, with great steaks mussels frites. A little pricey due to the location but convenient and good food.

Nice and cosy with good food and friendly staff. Has a fire place that certainly improves your mood on a stormy day.
They have child seats and don't mind you leaving behind tons of biscuit on the floor. We really liked it and so did our 1 year old daughter who was allowed to wet her hands in a fish tank full of oysters.:-)
