Our waiter seated us away from the noisy main part of the restaurant where we could still converse in normal tones. However, the live piano music coming from the bar was still perfectly audible and tasteful. Meals were delicious, as was the bottle of Rhone...More

I've been to La Bourla often, but this time it was with a group of 25 swimmers after a tournament in Antwerp. The kitchen and crew managed to maintain the same quality and service as i am used to enjoy with them. Even with the...More

When we arrived, we were immediately shown to our table. The waiters/waitresses were relatively quick to serve us, despite the restaurant being almost full. They had a wide range of delicious starters, mains and puddings. It was my first time eating snails and, even though...More

Came here for a quick bite to eat. I had the Vol a Vent and my girl the Tajin. Both dishes were served rather quick but that did not affect the taste. Very nice, with good ingredients.

We ordered the surprise list of appetizers. What we got was a bit disappointing. A bit of spareribs, shrimps in curry and artichokes. Very little and not extraordinary. It was also rather overpriced for what we got. For the rest a very nice location for...More

This restaurant had good reviews on Trip Advisor and was also open all afternoon for food which can be difficult to find. When we arrived we were moved twice as the tables we wanted were reserved for customers who were apparently arriving at 7.30pm (this...More

Dear Susie, Thank you for your feed back. It has been forwarded to the whole team in order to draw lessons from it. It is absolutely unacceptable that the service level drops during the quiet moments of the day. The experience you had is -as...More

A monument in every sense of the word. A loyal but varied clientele likes to come here for a coffee, snack, sumptuous dinner or quick lunch. Classic, well prepared home made dishes in a majestic setting and friendly/informal service
