“Good value for money brasserie located in the heart of Brussels”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Good, decent salads and snacks with a plat du jour (dish of the day) at a very reasonable price.
Friendly and multilingual staff (especially the Romanian waiter).
One of the nicest terraces during summer.

“Hearty meals and friendly staff”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

Perfect place to pop in for a quick breakfast or coffee. For lunch or dinner you can chose between various options, and vegetarians also can find some delicious meals. Their comforting "soup of the day" can be the highlight of your day on a day out in town. Hearty and freshly made meals, helpful and friendly staff is always guaranteed.

“Great place to rest for a while with nice drink and light food!”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

Drawn in by the simple decor and interesting mix of people hanging out here (young people, families with kids, senior gents...) Perfect spot to chill after some long walk around the city. Small but nice selections of fresh light meal, tea/coffee/beer... impressed by personable service by staff. Fresh mint tea and chicons gratin met purée was yum:)

“Nice place for evening out”
Reviewed September 10, 2011

The hot goat cheese salad and the tartine with hummous were ok and we enjoyed them with the great white beer on tap.

The food is not the strong point and in fact the menu is pretty limited. But the tables outdoor in the plaza make up for it to enjoy an evening out drinking good beer in a very nice atmospehere
