After arriving in this brasserie we sat at a table near the front of the restaurant but discovered that every so often there was an unpleasant, irritating sound that turned out to be a recalcitrant coffee machine !They kindly moved us to another table and from there on we had a pleasant and satisfying meal. My sabayon was great.

We were in Mechelen for two weeks that is four adults and a child. We enjoyed the first time we ate here and intended to go back several times during our stay. However the next time my grandson was not well and we asked for him to have just a plate of chips. Our waitress had to go and ask the chef if that was o.k. ? apparently so was the answer. However when we got the bill they charged us seven euros fifty cents for a currywurst ! Thinking it was a mistake we were told that that was on the bill and they would not take it off. Spending something like 160 euros plus a night on our evening meals they lost a customer. They were not at all polite when we queried our bill. So we will not return nect year if we are in Mechelen It was not the amount but the principle and their attitude towards us.

Dear Margendy,

I would like to apologize for the miscommunication between the waitress and the chef (me).
If you are again in Mechelen, I would love to explain why the error has been made. We certainly will pay back what you have paid too much.

It's a very good place if you want to stay in the city center.
They have good dishes, personally I tried salmon and was very good, specially with a local beer.
Highly recommend apple pine withe cream as a dessert.
Two people we payed 65€.
Some trumbles on paying with Maestro.

A nice elegant "brasserie" and a creative kitchen marying traditional meals with modern cooking. And all this at a decent price.

We ate here for dinner one night and came back again for lunch the next day because we were pleased with our experience. With so many restaurants to choose from in the square, we randomly chose it based on the crowd (not empty, but not so crowded things would take too long) and liking the decor (simple, but classy). The menu included a wide range of dishes that you don't typically see. For appetizers, we ordered two types of croquettes - a cheese one and a wild game one. Both were delicious. House wine was a good value for money. They gave us a house appetizer as well - duck breast which was tender. I also really liked their bread. For the main, we ordered the wild boar and the venison. Both dishes were artfully arranged and accompanied by tasty side dishes. The meat for both was very tender and flavorful. We loved both dishes. Some how we found room for dessert which did not disappoint. Service was good. For lunch, we ordered pasta dishes. Meals were tasty, but portions were so big we could not finish them. I highly recommend this restaurant.
