We had dinner with a party of 5 on a Friday night. Was quite surprised that the place was not full. Didn't take long to find out why...service nice but inexperienced and the food just not what to expect from a Belgian restaurant.

This was the worst meal I had by far. Quality of food was terrible: meat was dry, lettuce was tasteless, Brussels sprouts were burnt. The soups came obviously from the can. We came with a group of 52 persons and food was just disgusting. Most...More

Every season we have a different menu, with home made products like typical Belgian pates, pies and parfaits. Inspired by Belgium’s diversity, we invent and create our dishes. We put traditional Belgian products such as parsnip, purslane and chicory back on the menu.We also embrace the rich culture of Belgian beers. As a reward for our love of the combination of beer and delicious food, we had the honour to receive the Bier and Gastronomie award 2009, a national award for restaurants that combine different beers with good cuisine. Every time we review our menu, we put a lot of effort into finding the perfect combination for each dish.
