Smallish, brasserie-style restaurant that, in its decor, is authentic and representative of old-word Brussels. The problem is these places get tourist-glutted and it impacts their offering and service. So, for us, this was a terrible experience. First, it started with an awful welcome, staff standing around ignoring us as we tried to tell them we had a booking. Second, our 'waiter' (I use term loosely as he hardly waited on us at all) gesticulated almost-angrily at us from across the room to exit by this door; which seemed to just lead to the kitchen (after a while we discovered it has a hidden small staircase to a lots a smelly toilets and an upstairs room). Third, we went up to this room, which has about 7 tables but was small and largely empty and sat down (after not being shown to our table). Fourth, the 'waiter' appears and rudely says we can't sit there and points us to a cubby-hole in the corner (with two chairs). We ask 'can we go downstairs?' and standing in the middle of an empty room he shouts "the restaurant is completely booked". Fifth, the subsequent service is consistent with the intro, but rounded off with the dinner-in-installments. When my steak comes, the frites do not; and I am more or less finished my dinner when they do arrive. Sixth, a large groupof locals arrive and proceed to shout at each other across the table; to a point where we can not hear each other. Totally, awful. We left thinking it would have been better to have a burger on room service in our room.
