“Not great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

First impressions were great - a generous glass of nice wine and a reasonable menu. However, my prawn croquette was ALL potato (other than a few prawns as garnish on the plate), and the table next to me said their fish was too hard to cut it was so overcooked. My main course of pork was ok (3 star, acceptable) but the problems with my starter, and the table next to me suggest that overall it is 2 star. Not cheap either, although Sainte Katherine is an expensive/tourist area.

“Nice place, great moules”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013 via mobile

Loved the moules, very nice and fresh. Try the place, it is very belgian. The menu hasn't got a large variety of foods but it is worth a try.

“New year's eve 2012/13”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013

3 of us came in about 8.30pm and ordered 2 starters of smoked salmon, and 2 steaks plus a cheese omelette (not on menu) for the vegetarian. 1 plate of salmon came an hour later, after we had chased it up, with very stale toast and the waiter just saying there was only 1 left - why not told when we ordered so we could choose something else (not an hour later ?)

The 2 steaks were good, but the veg on the side was poor and the chips mediocre. Would have been 1 star, except for their willingness to cook an omelette which was apparently good.

“good food, service could improve”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012

great mussels and sea food dishes, however, both times we ate there was tended by a rather dispassionate waiter. We were not looking for effusive, but a little eye contact and being present when needed would really help.

“Moules and frit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

We have to have moules at least one time everytime we are in Belgium, and this time we had it outdoor on Place Sainte-Catherine. Delicious!
