I've never eaten such a tasty horse steak in my life. I'm not a big fan of horse meet, however, the horse steak here is different. We regularly go to this restaurant and they always serve great food. Highly recommend!!!

Best horse steak ever ! This is an Institution in the region... Or even better, worldwide ! Family business, first father, then son ! Everything is 1st quality, and on top of the 5 star quality, , it remains a casual and warm venue !

We were looking for a good and quick dinner and found this small but very nice local restaurant in Vilvoorde. Very good and friendly service, specialized in horse steaks, but also has other beef steaks. Highly recommended.

they don't serve chicken or poultry. Alternatives are pork cutlets or a tomato filled with shrimp (belgian speciality). Hope your partner likes one of these so you can have your horse steak
