Came here on a Friday night, this restaurant is in the shadow of St Rumbolds. Initially the service was good with our drinks orders being taken not long after being seated. However, it then went downhill. First of all we were given Flemish menus. Only one of our group speaks Flemish so we then had to wait for English menus.... More

The fish portion was not enough (not worth his money). The horse stick however was a good portion. The waiter was not friendly but the waitress was very friendly.

Second time we had mussels here. It's very tasty and plenty. The staff is friendly, committed and happy. This time it took quite some time for them to prepare i, but it was not a big deal. I will go there for dining again.

This is a wonderful location -- but that's it! The service was non-existent. We would have had a more human experience with a robot. The food was HORRIBLE. Pesto pasta was soaked in oil and we received the cheese croquettes on a bed of ROTTEN lettuce. It was disgusting. We didn't get an apology. Of course we didn't pay for... More

To start on a positive note, the restaurant is located next to cathedral and has a nice terrace covered in sun. Great place to enjoy a sunny afternoon! However, we were with 6 people, and with all dishes we ordered, something was wrong. We ordered mussels cooked in wine. We got mussels without the wine, and with way to much... More

Went to this place with some friends. The order was taken incorrectly and we ended up with the wrong plates. They gave a reduction at the end, so that was fair. Food was ok, but just the wrong order...

It was pretty weird that they let us wait for a table that was already free for half an hour. Nevertheless, we didn't make a reservation, so we didn't mind too much. The interior has a warm and cosy feeling. I would definitely recommend it for couples! The service was average: they did everything they had to do (let us... More

I came with a work colleague after visiting Mechelen for a meeting. We had no idea where to go and after wandering around we came across here which looked so cozy. The food is freshly made and so good. Great location, relaxed and unpretentious. Good value and we reluctantly left to start our 2 hour journey back home.

Thank Sarah R
