We didn't plan to visit this restaurant initially. We were walking around the old city when day turned to night before we knew it. As dinner beckoned, we stepped into the first restaurant (Mie Katoen) we saw.
The restaurant was a surprise. The atmosphere and decor were very nice - the courtyard was lovely (although it was too cold for me to be sitting outside) and the interior was beautifully decorated with old books (like a library). The food (salad bar) was delicious and I could easily have that without the fondue or stone grill.
We had both the fondue and stone grill that evening and we were fortunate to be wearing something that were easily washable. The smell from the fondue and stone grill stayed on the clothes and lingered for a long while after we left the restaurant! The ventilation of the restaurant could be improved. I would definitely want to be wearing something expensive in Mie Katoen.
The other shortcoming about the restaurant was the language ability of the serving staff. While the serving staff were very friendly and eager to assist, there wasn't anyone who could communicate in English. This did cause a little difficulty and challenge when making our orders. I guess the restaurant don't see many guests from outside Belgium or the Netherlands.
