Went there with friends because every other restaurant in the area seemed crowded. We were led upstairs to the spacious but very simple dining area. No decoration except for a few small plastic Christmas trees. I could smell cigarette (?) smoke coming from the same floor, it was very unpleasant. Food is very expensive, especially the starters around 15 Eur. We went for pizza which was big and crusty, but everyone complained that the dough was too thick. The menu is very limited and does not offer Vegetarian options except for one pizza (didn't ask if their cheese was Vege friendly). For some reason, the waitress only spoke Italian and very little French. She couldn't even explain the ingredients. If you put it on the menu, make sure that your staff knows what's in the food! We were charged 3.10 Eur for one coke (served in a beer glass)! Would not go back, this place is lacking atmosphere and is way too expensive. Nice view on the little Christmas market though (especially in the evening).

Disappointed by the antipasto: veggies seemed old and too greasy. Pasta was too salty and risotto had no flavor. Atmosphere and decor not great either.

Nicely situated not far from the main centre of town. Liked the atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. The food was good if a bit pricey, well presented and speedily served. Overall a classy sort of place.

We had dinner here our first night in Brussels. Shared the seafood antipasto as a starter. Not as exciting as it could have been, but not bad. Lacked some flavor but looked beautiful. I had tagliatini with crayfish and anchovies for main which was a bit heavy on the salt but still very nice. My partner had the ravioli aux vongole which was very subtle in the flavors but again, nice. The service was a bit uninterested and at times hard to get their attention. Overall, a nice first night in Brussels!
