It never occurred to us that folks might avoid this wonderful restaurant until our Belgian home exchange partners said that they didn't want to eat at a "truck stop", which is how they translated its name. Eventually we convinced them to try it, and after their first visit they couldn't get enough of the place! We have dined there often over the years and have never had a disappointing experience; in fact, it is our "go to" restaurant when we have out of town guests because the food and service are so consistently good.
In this rather romantic and cosmopolitan setting, the chef serves up a seasonally changed, expertly designed series of menu choices. One smart move has been to limit the selections a bit but thereby assure that each dish will be special. Another has been keeping some favorites available always, despite the other changes. (We would be crushed if they stopped serving their moules et frites, for example, featuring the best fries and dipping sauce we have ever had, even in Belgium and France). The flavors and textures are always well balanced, and items are prepared to order and served promptly without rushing the dining experience. Diners may choose from an extensive bar menu and/or the seasonally varied dinner menu, with everything a la carte, making it easy to order exactly the desired combinations. An extensive wine list also enhances the restaurant's offerings, as does the fact that the relatively large wait staff provides quietly efficient and unobtrusive service.
Alternatively, the bar features a comfortable seating area as well as the expected bar stool and
small table combinations. Service is, as elsewhere in the establishment, friendly and skilled. It is a busy bar, though, so if you are hoping for a quiet dinner, reserve a spot in the dining room instead.
