“Worldly”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

In a town where most restaurants are understaffed and have a feeling of bad management this place has it all right.
Excellent food, good happy service and a refined menu equal to a restaurant in Rome, New York....

“Great Italian restaurant”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Not the pizzeria from next door, but real quality food. Took the menu and had very great tasting amuze, great starter, good seasoned entrecote, medium baked just like i ordered. It was not plenty but just enough.

Service was great, the maître gave us some good tips and info about the wine they serve. They had enough staff, filled up the wine when needed, explained the food they gave us.

The menu is not cheap but good quality. It is also located in the more expensive part of Belgium and right at the sea. Hence the little bit to high price.

Overall very satisfied. Afterwards went to the casino and won more then our meal back. Perfect evening.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

In a nutshell: not worth the money.
Was tipped by other people this was a really good restaurant. Looking at the prices: 20eur for starter and 35eur for main, I was expecting good food.
Service in general was good, although you need to have some patience. But their menu warns about above average waiting times because of fresh food.
Starter was below average. I had scampi with spicy tomato sauce. Sauce was just the basic tomato sauce the restaurant would probably use in the majority of their dishes. Only with my dish there was little to no seasoning...shame of the good quality scampi.
Main dish was cod. For 35eur i was expecting something special. But what a disappointment! Got a starter sized cod, with some rocket lettuce. Some dry old potatoes went along with the dish and made the disaster complete. Fish was good quality but for this money I'm expecting MUCH more.
Wine was good (luckily). Overall my biggest disappointment of 2012.

“Nice italian food ! A little pricy”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

We went there for lunch time, took the 3 course lunch menu for 28 Euros ! Nice amuse bouche, all in all good food, freshly prepared, very tasty, probably the best italian food around, lots of passion in the plates !
The only negative aspect was, we ordered a kids portion of spaghetti vongole for our daughter, a rather small. (very) portion, and afterwards on the bill, we realized that we were charged 20 Euros for that, that was caused a little bit upset stomach in our valet !
