“Food nice but inadequate service”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Title says it.

We opted for the trout and sole dishes. Fish was very fresh (but did not expect otherwise) and well cooked.

However, service was very indifferent, hardly any greeting or otherwise any interaction between staff and guests. Got the feeling we were just being tolerated. Would have been maybe less surprising at the end of the season, but our visit was just before the start of it.

Also, charged 9 euro for a bottle of still water, a price more suitable for Brussels than the Ardennes.

“Food from the freezer”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We took the most expensive wine 35€ saint-estephe on recommendation of the host and it was served too cold (at 1degree.. ), undrinkable. The salmon taken as starter was icy. The service itself was very slow. Must say that the French fries were excellent.

“Modern and quite nice”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

This new restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of our accomodation.The decor was very modern and the ambience buzzing.The place was clean and the staff welcoming.

Food was nice- not amazing but pleasant all the same. It cost between 13.50 euros for a fish dish and 25 euros for a mixed grill, so was very reasonable.

The service was unobtrusive to the point where we would have ordered coffees but they seemed reluctant to disturb us to ask if we wanted it and it was hard to catch the waiters eye.
