I often went there during lunch time and was always very satisfied! The only restaurant around the Grand-Place with good food and not 'usual Belgian brasserie' for good quality/value, in a nice deco and quiet atmosphere. Will miss such a place...

After a year of not being able to visit Up North I wanted to taste the wonderful gravad lax again. Sadly enough the restaurant closed down. Perhaps it was just a bit too much out of sight for many visitors. It was not packed with...More

Fantastic scandinavian food: deer, salmon, herrings...marinated, roasted, grilled...yummy. The place is very small so you need to book. The service is excellent (and the waiter is hilarious :).
