Good food. Nice place. Nice service. Great place to visit. May want reservations. I had veal milanese with mushroom sauce and it was good. Another had duck and it looked excellent. Others had salmon and it was excellent. Piano player for most of the night. Chocolate mousse was excellent. Sorbet as well. Creme Brule had the sugar burnt but was good.

While staying down town, we decided to try something more local. Our reservation was made at a local web site and we used the bus to get out into the area. The bus stop was a block away and soon we were inside. It was warm and inviting. The host was aware of our reservation and saved a great table with a view.

Both our host / server and the chef stopped by with details about the food and the place. My friends had mussels which he had wanted and I tried a steak. He was very happy with a generous serving in a large kettle. My steak was good, only chewy in few places. The side dishes were excellent, as was my beer.

The price was not cheap but fairly priced. We would go back again.

Located in the Padawa neighborhood of the Evere Commune this is the restaurant I have eaten at most in my 4+ years in Brussels, primarily due to its 500 meter distance from my flat....LOL! GREAT restaurant which I'd definitely off the beaten path (nothing touristy about this restaurant at all) and a favorite of the locals which is ALWAYS a tell tell sign of quality. They always begin you off with a tasty demmareur (starter). Afterwards try the croquettes or the scampi diabolique (shrimp in a spicy cream sauce), both are delicious. For the entree choose ANYTHING because it is all good. Think of this place as the "Cheers" of Brussels. The locals are all nice, the waiters multi-lingual and the atmosphere quite nice. C'mon, get off the beaten path and have dinner in my neighborhood!

Wanted quick lunch at some inexpensive pub-style restaurant. Service was just too slow, we waited for ever. And when the food did arrive, one plate did have dairy products, something which we repeatedly asked to avoid, one of us having allergies. No apologies, no coffee offered or something. Disappointing.
