Good value for money, but the setting is rather drab, except for the kitchen-dining room which is fun. Nice bouillabaisse; the Provencal chef has been here for quite a while but still has the 'accent méridional'

You'll feel like you're in a friendly French bistro, only one with extra-good food and imaginative cuisine. Staff like to talk to you in this 20-table restaurant. Good times all around. Original dishes included a delicious mussel soup, with about 15 tasty whole mussels in my bowl, mixed with a forest of green herbs. Dessert was a homemade and delicious chocolate/pistachio checker cake, served with homemade pistachio ice cream (yum). Good wine selection, with several affordable half-bottles. Conveniently located in the heart of old town. A worthy destination.

Based on the reviews on this site, we decided to give this restaurant a try. The terrace looks quite boring and uninviting. Restaurant is located very close to the city hall and the cathedral, hence we feared another tourist trap. Because of the terrace we wanted to skip it first, but inside it looks nicer and we went in. That proved to be a good decision.
Food was excellent. Limited menu with nice dishes, great taste combinations. Price/quality is good. Service is professional, yet to our taste giving the waiters some kind of uniform would upgrade this nice restaurant.
If you are looking for real good French/Belgian cuisine, give it a try. We'll go back!
