Never been here before, but a friend recommended "de fonteyn". Dinner was fine, no complaints, though the bread could have been better. Perfect for a weekend dinner, nothing fancy.

Arrived with a group of six and were immediately limited to only 4 choices for mains. The restaurant was half full so I did not understand why we needed to help safe work. It ruined my evening. Other than that the food was pretty good.

I go regularly to this retaurant when I m in Belgium. Good food and service, one minor point , try to get a seat in the smallest room on the front side, the rest has very bad accoustics and when its full can be very noisy(weekends)

I really can't understand why people are complaining about the service because this is excellent. Never forget it is a brasserie so waiters are less drilled and the atmosphere a more à-l'aise, I guess you had some very bad luck it took so long. Are you went in the middle of the local 'feesten'. Let's start with the 'aperitif', it... More

I go to this restaurant quite often, and I'm surprised by the negative reviews. I suppose a bad day is always possible, but, even though this is a brasserie and not a michelin star restaurant, I have always been satisfied. Food is good, varying from traditional and regional to more surprising dishes. Service is normally pleasant, without fuss. Atmosphere is... More

I get it it's Belgium and service isn't what I'm used to in the US but it was completely atrocious. We walk in and wait a bit before they say that they will clear a table and sat at the bar. We wait and wait and another pair walks in and presumes to sit at the table that was supposed... More
