“Good food, strange place.”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

Meat is really good, luckily, because it's the only dish on their menu. Atmosphere is a bit weird: impersonal service, loud talking personnel and a yelling cook. Also a negative was the extra charges for e.g. Mayonnaise (€2!).

“Looks not that good , tastes great”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

For a real horse steak please drop by, see beyond the "autentic" see old fashioned interior, but enjoy the meat with a beer!!
Don't go there with people who like small portions and fat-free diets, they don't like it.
Service is in a league of it's own, and very personal.

“It's no shame, it's delicious.”
Reviewed 14 June 2011

It's no shame, horse steak is delicious. This is the best steak in town. The atmosphere is fine, the food is superb and the price makes this a winner.
And the Belgian fries are fresh as they are supposed to be (no fridge or frozen fries).

“Succulent horse meat”
Reviewed 9 June 2011

The young owner who took over business from "Grumpy Lowieke" surely kows how to entertain. He rules with loud voice and funny remarks, he even made Murrath, his right hand in the kitchen, sing for the guests. Now for the food: horse meat is the core business. You can choose between a filet of 350 or 500 gr or "schep", which is a kind of horsemeat stew. That's about it, no frills. I managed to eat the 500gr of meat, which was of excellent taste and quality, pan fried in butter. You get the melted buttter in a saucepan. Fries and a salad are standard. The place is rather small, it would certainly wise to book in afdvance.
