Restaurant exceptional, quality / good price. The waiters are very friendly, the food is really delicious, appetizers are offered by the house with a beautiful presentation, the food is really good and the menu has many choices from fish to meat, from soups to really great salads, not to mention the coffee that is accompanied by many desserts. really recommended

Just back from having a great dinner. We didn't go for the set menu and choose a la carte. Beef carpaccio was outstanding followed with grilled deer veal fillet which was perfect. My wife had shrimp croquettes which were rich and tasty while my daughter had pumpkin soup. They both had fillet steak with pepper sauce. As dessert our daughter... More

Take your time to enjoy this restaurant. The rear terrace is just perfect for an outdoor business lunch during the summer season, when all can be a bit more relaxed... They offer a flexible lunch menu and many more suggestions to choose from. While it is difficult to fault the cuisine, I would perhaps encourage the waiting staff to put... More

we enjoyed our dinner to say the least. although, it took time to have your food ready. the bread with pâté and a small tapas made up for it.

This is one of the must-try restaurants in the area, be sure to book well in advance though as the seats are limited and the interest is great. With such great food they deserve this kind of attention. One point of attention, the waiting staff is not always in a good mood and that sometimes reflects in the service. I'm... More

After 2 former visits we have booked for a family gathering to celebrate my wife's and myself's 70th birthdays. We had a very flexible choice within the set menu and as there were 6 young grandchildren present their preferred dishes outside the set menu were kindly accepted; they loved it. Again (now for the third time for me) I and... More

We went there last week for lunch, looking for a place for celebrating our 70th birthdays with our children and grandkids. This is a very cosy restaurant, nicely situated in a rural environment in the Schelde valley, with a summer terrace in front and in the garden. The menu proposal was an excellent choice; the food was superb. The atmosphere... More

It was our first time to this brasserie. Interior is very cozy. We choose the partridge which was unfortunately too dry. The fish gratin was really tasty though. One big opportunity for improvement is the attitude towards customers. The waiter was really grumpy ....

We went there for a number of times because it is not far from home. On the first few occasions it was rather crowded and we thought this was the reason for the slow service. However, even on quiet days the pace is similar. The quality of the dish is largely depending on it's complexity. The complexer the more avarage... More
