“Good Belgian food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

My local bistro Nerocafe serves Belgian style food. There are daily specials. Nice location in the centre of the village of Hoeilaart in a converted railway station, near to the Zonian Forest. Good place to go for a drink or a meal after a walk. Decorated with sketches from the Nero comic strip. The cartoonist was a local resident.

“Quick service, but terrible fruit with the waffels.”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

Quick and friendly service. But very sour fruit and coffee chocolate sauce with our wafels. The wafels themselve were nothing special too..

“bugs included”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

We went to Hoeilaert with our family to enjoy the beautiful Zoniënwoud and stopped for lunch in the Nerocafe. Personnally I would rather call this a brasserie than a restaurant. And for this kind of kitchen, the food was fine, nobody really complained about their dish.
But then a bug left it's hiding place in the remaining salad on my plate, some sort of centipede.
My company did not really enjoy their food anymore once this insect ran around on my plate.
When I brought this to the attention of the staff, the reply was " Sir, this is because this salad just came out of the chef's garden", which got all of us wondering whether this should now be seen as a special treat, "a chef's special"? No apologies, no compensation what's so ever.
A real pitty because this could have been a nice experience, a nice place to come back too, but little chance for that after this event...

We love to hang out here, specially when we need to wait someone nearby centrum of Hoeilaart.
There's kids menu, good beverages (beer, soft drink or juices). Classic or some nice meals you can find here.
