You know the feeling you get sometimes, when you walk past a restaurant and just feel that it's going to be worth going to. That was exactly how I felt walking past it on a Sunday morning when it was still closed.
We walked into l'industrie in the evening, without having booked. We received a very warm welcome by the "patron" of the restaurant and were given great service - to include refills of our drinks and plates of frits without even asking for them!
The dishes we tried were the, classic for Liege, Boullees au sauce lapin - a beautifully cooked dish with the sweet being slightly more sweet than the version I had a few days before at a small diner - and the amazing and highly recommended Jambonette au sauce moutarde a l'ancienne; a hock of ham, slow smoked and then roasted. You couldn't tell whether it was a piece of cured ham, a piece of slow roasted pork, or both. Melt in the mouth, with a lovely mustard and cream sauce. Both were served with delicious double-cooked chips.
The service was great; we felt really looked after. The environment is very friendly and welcoming, and the interior of the resturant is interestingly but not overwhelmingly decorated.
Price-wise, one would probably classify it as mid-range, although in the grand scheme of it I thought it was excellent value and quality for money.
I would definitely go there again, and recommend it very highly.
