Atmosphere and staff are friendly, the food is simple and tasty - suitable for vegetarians/vegans. They have large tables that is very convenient for large groups.

We went there for a quick lunch break. The place has a lot of potential, like long tables, good natural lights, but then, to start, i was not able to find the beer on the menu, i asked for the beer menu, which is normal in Belgium, and for my surprise they don't have it... what a disappointment... Then the... More

Not very tasty, you have to wait long for the dishes and after all to queue for paying! There are better places for lunch around.

Visited a few days ago for lunch with some colleagues. Service was adequate, food was good. A colleague and I shared the Vegetarian Enchiladas and Grilled Chicken Tacos, and both were simple but tasty, with fresh ingredients. If you are a cheese lover go for the enchiladas, if you are an avocado lover or health geek then the tacos are... More

I have been to this place three times over the last couple of years at the insistence of friends and colleagues - and each time a new disaster! This place is poorly run and seriously understaffed even when there aren't many clients to be served. Waiters take ages just to bring you the menu, then add another 10-15' to take... More

I guess this place is just for eating when you have no other option in the area. We had a quick business lunch there. I ordered grilled chicken on a pillow of bread which ended up being a bad option. I could only eat the chicken. The bread was horrible. It might have been a 5 days old bread.

We had a diner after a business day with two colleagues in this restaurant. Food was not special and there was no possibility to have beer or wine or any other alcohol. Anyway credit card machine did not work either. Overall not a place to spend a lot time but ok for quick food.
