“Delicious and different. For special occasions.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

Excellent food, very tasty and a different menu than classic bistro's. I loved the flavours and the textures. It's quite expensive so only for special occasions.

“Dead on ! Pity that the location doesn't match the food quality.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

In this old fashion bistrot (with lilmited seating so reservation seems necessary) we had a very good diner.
The speciality of this restaurant is "forgotton parts - organ meats" and old fashion recipes with a modern twist.
The apetizer was light and tasty, a panna cotta of asparagus. Fresh, full of taste and not too high on gelatine.
As first dish we took the "ganzenlever met varkenspoot - goose liver with pigs foot", again well thought and correctly served with a fine slice of brioche and some tasty marmelade.
Main coarse was the "Vol au vent van zwartpootkip met kalfstong en zwezerik - Vol au vent of chicken with veal's tongue and sweetbread" a VERY nice combination, high in taste. Presentation was fine (with a piece of dried chicken skin, nice surprise) and also the french fries are nicely done.
The desert was really good dame blanche ice cream, again nicely presented and served - as should be - with some warm chocolate sauce.

The wines are abit on the expensive side, but if you want to have a special culiunary adventure, this is a must do !

“Classy choice of meat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

In a somewhat remote area of Antwerp you will find a typical bistrot style restaurant, friendly and well managed. Specialty seems to be meat, not only steaks and sirloins, but also other parts of calf and cow. Not exactly cheap, but certainly worth every penny, we 'll come back for more !

“Meat restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

Brand new interior in retro style. Mostly meat dishes. Choices are a bit limited but great and friendly service. Wines are good but too expensive.
