“It's decent cafe food - nothing more, nothing less”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Set in the very large Grand Place of Turnhout, surrounded by many other similar bars / cafes / restaurants, this is a reasonable cafe, serving typical cafe food. The quantity is generous, the quality is - well - cafe. A good cafe mind, with plenty of choice, for sure. But still, very much a cafe. We took the pita cheese and the fried scampi, plus chips of course. Decent quality, and suitably filling. Are you going to get a culinary experience? No. Are you going to get plenty of decent quality food, with no airs and graces? Sure. At a cost of 28 euros for 2, including a large water the price is not bad either. Add to that very helpful, and quick staff, and......well, you have a good lunch. Just don't expect haute cuisine.

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

We, a group of 16 people, visited this restaurant on January 2nd. We reserved a table for our group. When we came in, we were welcomed and a few moments later we already could enjoy a nice drink. Almost everybody of our group ordered something else, but nevertheless the last person was served some minutes after the first person. Look on their website to have an idea of the amount of different things they will serve.
The restaurant is on the Great Place but you can not parc your car there (do not trust google view). There is a parking at the crossing of Otterstraat and Kwakkelstraat.
The staff is friendly and they had no problem to let everyone pay for his own meal.
