“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Staff and sommellier were wonderful. Friendly and professional. The food was amazing - this is one of the best meals we've ever had in Brussels, and we visit often. Classic french cuisine, and a superb wine list.

“Really enjoyed my meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Lovely dining experience in the vaulted brick wine cellars. Lovely candelight makes for a romantic setting. I had the sommelier pick the wine for each course. It was lovely. I highly recommend the cheese for after dinner.

“Great dinner setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

The atmosphere in this old wine cellar is romantic and very nice, the service was also great. The food perhaps is a bit pricey for what it is but in general i think the overall experience is worth it.
Great advice about the wine from the waiter.... I will definitely come back to confirm the good impression.

“Disappointing second visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

It was our second visit to this restaurant. While we had a great experience on our first one, the second try was disappointing. It was especially unfortunate as we invited special overseas guests whom we had hoped to indulge in fine Belgian gastronomic experience. Such a waste! The recommended wine was not good, the main plates were overly simplistic and not a bit exciting considering the hefty price we paid. There was a confusion with one of the main dishes due to our misunderstanding of the French menu and poor explanations by the staff. To our unpleasant surprise, we got fully charged for the dish which we had returned to the kitchen untouched. We were very disappointed! There are other much better places to dine in Brussels that continue to prove their excellence time after time.

“This is a really great fun restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Set in a series of interconnecting barrel vaulted brick built wine cellars - this is a great restaurant.

With a short menu + daily specials the cooking is simple, almost rustic, but very good.

The wine list is a "tour de force" with over 400 wines in the cellar and a very helpful wine waiter who will suggest some very interesting wines. (but do avoid the Sicilian Rose)

The young ladies serving, were without fail, charming and helpful.

Seeing how popular it was the night we were there I would imagine booking is essential.
