Little restaurant where you can enjoy delicious vegetarian food. Must mention how carefully and delicate the Cook was making our food (we could see him from the table), and how nicely he treated us, despite the fact that the closing time was soon.

We found that lovely restaurant because of a local guide. It's about 10-15min walking from the centre, but it worth it! It's a small local, with a guy that cooks and serves himself. Such an authentic Belgian restaurant, the quiche tastes glory, and it's all...More
