Wonderful seasonal cuisine using fresh local produce. Husband and wife team in unassuming location create a small piece of magic. Excellent wines by the glass and some fine local beers. While not cheap the quality of the dishes deliver value.

I like to complain but nothing to say. Best restaurant in Ixelles! Just do it... Impeccable food, service and atmosphere. Seasonal menus prepared with flair and served with outstanding wines. We will definitely be coming back.

Lovely restaurant, great food and very careful service. A bit in a strange part of town but worth the detour. In the Slow Food list of restaurants in Brussels... Really enjoyed it. Try it!
