This place was recommended by the teacher of a waffle-making workshop my husband did. Funky decor, good food. I had shrimp croquettes & he had duck breast with cherries. Service was good.

Great accidental find with great burgers and great beers to go with...the fries in the cute little flower pots was a fun touch. Waitress was very helpful and tolerated our numerous questions. Try the JCVD burger!

We went here our first night in Brussels and were not disappointed. The young man serving us was helpful and nice. The food and the drinks were also really really tasty!

We were there on the 31st and had a delicious breakfast. My kids had the scrambled egg with toasts and me and my husband fried eggs with toasts. Portions was good and taste good. Great coffee and hot choc! Great place to dine. Good food with good price.

Spotted this place quite randomly and were pleasantly surprised by the selection and quality of food! We ordered the duck and prawn biegnets as well as 1/2 craft of wine and dessert for 56 euros. Very reasonably priced for the large portions. They were very generous on the vegetables and salad, I was thoroughly impressed. The service was also excellent.... More

Good, basic local home cooking: we had the meatloaf and the rabbit, extra frites. Simple, basic, well prepared dishes, for me not overly salted. Upstairs was very full, very noisy (holiday season still, before New Year's), but then some might enjoy that energy. Food was ready promptly, but service was a bit negligent, though very friendly. Would go back for... More

It was cozy & warm for late night dinner with family of four. It's pop and casual setting and waitress speak English :) The service was efficient and quick. Price is average for city centetral location and food were not bad. The portions were really big so, better go when you hungry!

Recently went there with a group of friends/visitors. Friendly service and good burger place. Nice thing about this place is that they offer a nice choice of burgers (and they are good!) but they also have other meals on their menu (incl. Belgian dishes). That's very fancy when you go with friends and not everyone is interested in burgers! Also,... More
