“Perfect Brasserie”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Just like its neigbour, Istas, brasserie food does not get better than this. Quick efficient service at reasonable prices and yummy food. What more does the heart (or stomach) want ? we have gone there for years now and have yet to be disappointed.

the only downpoint is that the seating is very 'compact', meaning not much personal space around you and it tends to get noisy.

“Typical traditional Belgian restaurant”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

The service here is never brilliant, but if you like traditional Belgian fare this is the place to visit in the Jezus Eik area.Tends to be packed out at weekends, but the atmosphere is good and the food is consistently enticing (but not cheap by local standards). Parking can often be difficult, but worth the effort if you appreciate 'moules frites' or a good steak.

“Lively Simple Restaurant serving great Steak Frites”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

Having grown up in the area, I know most of the restaurants around the Jezus Eik church very well, but this one has been a family favourite for as long as I can remember. It's a very simple place with a limited menu, but what they do, they usually do well. The Steak Frites is always reliable, particularly succulent when you order the "filet pur" cut of meat, and accompanied with excellent unlimited supplies of french fries.
The service can come across as a bit rough, and you have to be prepared for "jokes" from the waiters. Usually just walk in and pick a table without waiting to be seated; unfortunately it can sometimes get very busy, particularly when the crowds from Brussels come out for their weekend walk in the nearby forest, which has repercussions on the quality of the service and food. Istas next door is a good alternative if you can't get a table.
