Description: You don't have to brave the airlines to visit an authentic little European neighborhood bistro. Come down to the quaint riverfront town of Occoquan for a little boutique shopping and finish up with a visit to our cozy bistro for a fine Belgian beer and a delicious meal. We are serving up always-fresh, always-homemade European bistro specialties, a selection of 60+ Belgian and Belgian-style beers we know you'll love, and a whole lotta coziness and welcome. Are they the freshest Prince Edward Island Blue Mussels and the crispy-creamiest fresh-cut Belgian Frites? You bet! Is there a beautiful street-side brick outdoor patio? Yep, we've got that, too. No fancy frills, just great beer, wine, and good, freshly prepared food. Oh! And we forgot to mention the delicious Non-GMO waffles. But you won't...see you soon! !

Went here this past week with my date for dinner. I used to live really close to Occoquan, and had not visited this cute little restaurant. I had the Coq and Bleu and it was delicious. The sauce that was on the chicken with the combination of potatoes was a great taste. We also had a waffle that our waiter recommended and it was the best part. I would have given it four stars but for two reasons. We sat outside and there were a ton of flies. I mean a TON. Besides that two other tables had brought their large dogs with them. They were on a leash, but it was a longer leash. I would recommend it, but maybe sit inside.

A cozy spot to stop in; very friendly staff; cute decor - a great spot to dine outdoors or upstairs. Downstairs is a little cramped and not as quaint.
The waffles are light and flaky and with just the right amount of sweetness. Very worthwhile to stop in for a late breakfast or a sweet treat.

Outdoor seating area is really nice indoors not so much, too crowded. Beers were a little expensive ~$12 per but for a special occasion it was fun. Our waitress was very nice.

We stop here to avoid rush hour beltway traffic coming back from the North Carolina beaches.

If the weather is good we dine outside and share one of their large selections of beer with a light dinner.

The mussels are always a safe choice with several variations. We had the mussels with champignons this time for $15. We balanced this with the soup de jour, a well seasoned lentil mixed with sausage etc.
