“mouth watering”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Easily THE best meal I have ever had! A great small restaurant away from the hustle of the Grand Place. A very friendly husband and wife team with amazing food. We eat here every trip.

“Still and excellent restaurant - an obvious choice in Brussels”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

I regularly visit this restaurant when I am in Brussels. What I like the most is that there is a dedicated team of people (Family) who are very serious about their business. They do their best to prepare a quality meal and provide excellent service. You pay no more here than you do in the tourist traps in Rue de Bouchers or something, and this is infinitely better.

Good value considering quality offered, especially the tasting menues.

“Well worth it's Bib Gourmand status”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

I've been in this restaurant dozens of times over the past decade, and this restaurant has consistently provided excellent quality and value for money on every visit to Brussels, and some great experiences at times. The restaurant is a traditional Flemish family business. It is always nice to be recognized (even after many months of absence) and given a welcome. I'm usually travelling (solo) on business, and for that the restaurant is quite suitable, but once I travelled with my wife and (then) young son, and they accommodated the three of us perfectly, we all still remember it. Warmly recommended.

“Good price quality”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

The main course and desert were very nice but the scampi starter was a bit disappointing. The service was fine only attention shoudl be paid when glasses are empty as we always had to ask to fill the glasses and then they only filled the glass of the person that was asking instead of serving the full table. Price/Quality good restaurant in Brussels.
