This trendy place serves typical Belgian food but always fresh and in a timely fashion . For lunch, we tried the shrimp croquettes (crevettes), the salade nicoise, the steak and the cod and we had one vegetarian guest for whom they made a special plate,...More

We were thrilled about this restaurant but the attitude and rudeness of the staff ruined our aperitivo. The Maitre was rude and impolite, pushed us to order quickly (even if the restaurant was empty - pic to follow) and didn't let us share a single...More

This restaurant is absolutely the worst, from the time we entered to the time we departed it was a total disappointment. The Filet American was bland and with no spices or herbs at all! If you are looking for a good dinner, do not go...More

A rather small place with an attentive service. The menu is traditional and offers all what you would expect in a Belgium brasserie. Portions are rather large. Nice location as well for a quick business lunch.
