The room is impressive - check out the offset bar when you enter, complete with gleaming coffee machine. We originally came here for a coffee and decided there and then to come back for lunch. By the time we arrived, the joint was jumping and nearly full. From families to friends (young and old) enjoying the plats du jour, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Service was great and the food excellent. I had a creamy risotto and my husband raved about his mussels with a lobster-bisque style broth. 'The best mussels I've ever had', he said - and that really IS a compliment, coming from him.

The wine by the carafe was excellent too but, for me, the highlight was the zabaglione - it is so long since I've had a proper zabaglione and this one was perfect: served in a tall glass, with a still lukewarm and perfectly foamy zabaglione topping a scoop of ice cream.

We vowed to come back to this place if (and when) we come back to Namur.

The ambiance and style of a Paris Brasserie, a large choices of belgian - italian dishes , very affordably priced. ASK the manager of the history of the building, we will have to go back to visit the first floor. Not tomisswhen in Namur

Beautiful brasserie with high ceilings and with a great location in the city. Very well designed brasserie on the inside. The service was super friendly and attentive. Food was delicious as well I had a vegetarian plate, which some times can be a bit boring at restaurants, but this one was very tasteful and good. Portions were good as well.

The place itself is very spacious and luminous thanks to the high ceiling. It has a very elegant character. The circular bar in the center of the room gives to the place, a unique atmosphere. The food is classic and tasteful.

On a warm evening, we chose this restaurant to dine on its terrace, out in the fresh air. This restaurant, located opposite the cathedral, offers a great variety of tasteful dishes. I particularly appreciated the "brasserie" menu items that suggest local dishes.
You could visit this place either for fine dining or for a more "average" dinner. For the winter days, there is a grande salle inside that can host large companies (btw, the bar inside is quite iconic).
