The waiters were very stressed and not friendly (maybe overworked)
We had to wait long and finally our dishes were cold and not appetizing.
After a complaint they said it was like that, of course we didn't argue but we will never go there anymore.

We found this bar/restaurant on our first day in Brussels and it was a perfect place to start off our trip. There is a huge selection of beers but the food menu is fairly basic. The staff were superb and the service was excellent. The interior is very grand and quite Parisian, with glass chandeliers and Tiffany light shades, and it's a great place to people watch as it was always busy when we went (we went back several times!). We even sat outside on a snowy December night and watched the world go by over several cups of coffee - they have overhead heaters outside and it wasn't at all cold! Would highly recommend.

The service was really lousy. We had one server on the upper floors, who kept telling his that its not his table to serve and we have to wait for our server to attend to us??? when our server eventually did turn up, he hurried us telling us his shift is almost over. The restaurant is pretty colorful and huge. The interiors are pretty arabic. I think they have more than three floors for themselves. We asked for a bloody mary, he gave us a vodka, tomato juice and Tabasco?? Ordered for a Capricciosa Pizza, which was ok since its not a pizza joint. Onion Soup fine, Spaghetti bolognese.. pretty bland. Liked the rim steak and ice cream. What stands out is that they have really clean toilets, maintained by a lady who charges around 20 cents...

A good place to call in and rest the weary legs. The service is excellent and the food good and very reasonably priced. Heaters outside for the brave. As ever in Brussels a fine choice of beers to wash the food down.

We visited this bar/restaurant 3 times on our trip to Brussels. Twice for drinks outside and once to eat inside. We sat outside to drink watching the world go by under the gas heaters keeping us warm as our time in Brussels was rather chilly and wet. It was really busy so had to wait a while to be served as the waiter "ran" backwards and forwards. Our drinks arrived with our free nibbles that are always a welcome extra on our trips abroad!! We ate inside on an evening out and enjoyed the hustle bustle of the restaurant. The menu had lots of choices but the wine menu was limited. We had a very attentive waiter who quickly brought our food to the table and managed to keep an eye on topping our wine up whilst attending to numerous other tables. The food was lovely and were advised to share a dessert as they were rather large!!! Good food, good service, pleasant staff and restaurant!!
