The Stoverij stew is famous in Belgium and is one of their specialist dishes. During my visit I had tried this dish is a number of different restaurants, though the one in the restaurant was by far the best. At €17, it wasn't the cheapest of the dishes I tried, but it was definitely worth every penny. The restaurant has a large selection of beers to choose from, and has a view of the canal while you eat, which creates a nice atmosphere also.

This place was recommended to us by some friends and we were very happy to have listened to them. The selection of beers was somewhat overwhelming (probably not if you live in Belgium) but the bartender talked us through some of the finer points of the types and styles of drinks. He was very helpful and took great pride in his explanations. We were also told to try the Flemmish Stew that had been made with a Dubbel Beer. It was amazing, simply amazing. Highly recommend it. Also, their mayo with the fires was some of the best in Belgium. No idea why it was so different, but it was impossible to not eat it with the fries.

Nice view over the Leie. Good beers and wines. When we ordered the salad with duck, is was sold out, but it was still mentioned on the card. That was a shame. Waiters very friendly though.

After reading the very negative reviews about this place-i feel i must write a very positive one. We went to this place on more than one occassion because it was a GREAT place!
The selection of beer, the great food and the VERY FRIENDLY staff made for a great time- i recommend this place 100% and can only assume that the other placed reviews were on a bad day or for the wrong place !!!!!
