This 'brown' pub was recommended by our host, and it is definitely well frequented by the locals. The food is basic but good.

We tried to get into another restaurant and failed on a Saturday night. We didn't want an expensive meal but didn't want steak and frites either. The receptionist in our hotel suggested this as a place where locals go and there was no need to...More

Just opposite Astridpark this place is great for a break and have a snack. It was a sunny day when we went there so we loved it sitting outside, enjoying a beer and a Croq monsieur. There's not a big selection of dishes but it...More

This is a great pub off the beaten track. It is well worth the 5 minute walk from the square to visit this. It is just behind the fish market and with a small park in front so would be a great place to sit...More
