We where looking for a place to eat in Spa on a sunday evening. A lot of choice, but we wanted some vegetarian and some freshly hunted meat (to compensate:) ). And this was the only place with a vegetarian item on the menu.The place was empty and looked a bit dull. but after a quick look at tripadvisor (just the score, no reviews) we decided to take the risk.
Man, what a surprise. Very friendly people (they helped us with a dictionary where the french went to technical), very good food, reasonably priced. 10 minutes after we took place the restaurant was full. reservation seems necessary after 19h00 - lucky us! I had the wild hare (rabbit) with a very good sauce and winter-vegetables...really really good! Maybe some people will say you have to wait to long but we weren't in a hurry and enjoyed the slow pace and the Ardenne atmosphere ...
Totally recommended and will visit again.

Had one of our best restaurant experiences in Belgium in this little gem in the centre of Spa. Place was full, you could not get in without a reservation, which we were lucky to have made. Had lamb and duck, both could hardly have been better. Everybody was also served a bite-sized entree (very stylish version of chicken wings) and a Schnapps with the bill. Service was very friendly, created a great atmosphere. Perfect price-quality-ratio!

Went there with a couple of friends on a Saturday evening. Warm welcome with a nice appetizer. Somevhad fish (sole and bar), others meat (steak and duck). Everything was excellent and presented in a nice and elegant way. Good classical desserts (dame blanche, crème brûlée, sorbets..). Worth to go.

Here for a three night stay in Spa and ate here tonight on night two. Will be going again tomorrow!! Great food, good service and all at a very reasonable price. The duck was delicious and the fish soup even better. Tomorrow night can't come quickly enough! Merci et Bon Appetite!

The owners of this tiny restaurant are very friendly and the is just perfect. The duck 'Rossini' was delicious, as well as the steaks. Perfect price/quality/quantity!
