the place is open on weekdays, and has a limited menu, meaning they don't cook from the freezer. Slightly innovative dishes, of decent quality at a correct price. Excellent for lunch

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague and we had a short meeting over dinner. It must be a very popular place as we found it difficult to book and managed to have an hour slot, which was perfect as we would still have dessert at the bar area. The staff are friendly even though they are busy and it... More

We were the very first to arrive at the restaurant, having reserved that didn't really matter... but I would advise it, since we arrived in the middle of the week and it was full house. Moving on they have an ever changing 4 options menu (€38 full menu), which unfortunately was still difficult to choose from ^^ they all seemed... More

Always an address to enjoy if you are looking for a lovely place to eat. Quality food and cosy interior. The Chef makes it personal and the menu is always the best choice and has a lot of variation. Good value for money.

The best restaurant in and around Diest! Always a surprising menu, adapting to the seasons. The chef often serves his costumers himself. Best steak tartaar I have ever had!

Steak tartare was close to perfect. Fresh, well-presented with quail's egg, gherkin, and caper berry. House made, hand-cut frites. Nice French red. Friendly owner. No down side at all.

Very cosy but casual atmosphere. Rather limited choice on the menu but all suggestions sound very tasteful. The quality of the food is excellent and the waiters very friendly. One remark : the bread served is so limited compared to the number of people at the table that we had to ask 4 times for extra bread. Please just serve... More

After 3 attempts without a reservation, we eventually got a table. Plus : Rather small choice on the menu, but excellent quality. Maybe that's the formula to their success. The service is impeccable. Limited offer of wines, but without any doubt VERY good value for money. Seldom seen such an approach, but, once again, our congratulations for the overall concept.... More
