We came into the restaurant while it was completely empty. A sign somewhere at the entrance informs that you can pay with a credit card above a certain amount of money, but somewhere inside the menu in very small letters it says you cannot, so guess what - only cash. We were charged 4 Euro for sharing a dish! It means, we payed for what we ordered alright, but also 4 euro for NOTHING!!! Seriously - just don't come here!

We walked into the restaurant fascinated by the atmosphere which was relatively promising. The service was ok until we had finished the main course. The staff didn't seem to be interested in us waiting for the desserts. The dessert was served after a reminder. Having finished the desserts we asked for the bill three times, but it wasn't delivered until we stood up and started to dress up. The young staff is clearly in need of training, especially in customer service. Unfortunately, there's nothing good to say about the menu either. The stew was tasteless and the strudel/apple pie tasted like it had been taken out of the freezer in the morning. Ketchup for the fries will cost 1€ in a tiny bowl. At your own risk.

We had a list of possible restaurant from TripAdvisor but after a long day we decided that most of these were a little too far from our hotel so we opted to try this one. It was nearly full but we did get a table not far from the fire.
Both the waitress and waiter who served us were very friendly and we were made to feel welcome, perhaps our national flower - daffodil - brooches helped.
I wanted to try the Flemish stew, it was very tasty but perhaps another few pieces of meat would have been appreciated. My husband had the chicken this was more filling. We decide to share a sweet and this did fill the gap.
There is a good selection of beers and they will help you decide which is best for you.

The service was so bad in this restaurant I am writing my first review ever on trip advisor to warn people off. The woman in charge was rudeness personified. The waiters were untrained and overworked - it wasn't their fault. Some of the food was mundane - eg an overcooked steak came with a salad with no dressing and the fries came twenty minutes later.

Really great food, we had to try the stew and were not disappointed. Set menu good value and we would definately go back. Service good and make sure all nationalities feel welcome. Good for a romantic dinner or just for lunch.
