    Most friendly and helpful staff I’ve ever encountered at a restaurant! They all worked as such an efficient team. The rabbit stew is unbelievable. The mussels were good, not the best I’ve had but still tasty. The location is a bit of a ways from the main old town square.

    I was introduced by a travel enthusiast and visited. I am very satisfied with the taste and service that exceeds expectations. The clerks were helpful and friendly. I ordered only mussel steamed with white wine and white beer, but I was full because I had frit and bread. Thank you for a wonderful time.

    Good food, great mussels, great service. Worth recommending. Cons: tight, one table next to another, there is nowhere to hang a coat, for expensive house wine.

    We made our reservation here for New Year's Eve with little research, and we could not have been happier with our choice. The staff was amazing--including the manager calling me in the US to confirm my reservation several weeks out. The mussels with garlic cream were so excellent that they have likely ruined all other mussels for me. The steak fries were so perfectly crispy, and desserts (almost) too rich to finish. Promise yourself you will get here for this food. It's worth every step, calorie, and euro.

    With a group of 8 we reserved a spot about a month beforehand, the restaurant website and the fork app were really clear about a 3 course menu at new year's eve. To make sure I really knew that the staff called about 2 weeks beforehand and explained the 3 course choice menu and that they would work with a time slot from 18u30 - 21u00 for our reservation, with the question if I would be okay with that. Well ofcourse! The night itself we arrived at 18u45, we got a warm welcome and the staff directed us to our spot in the lovely looking restaurant with a great athmosphere. We were put on the 2nd floor in a corner, we noticed there were only 2 seat tables arround us, perhaps not the best of places for them, right next to a group of 8, but we definitely had a wonderful evening. At the end they were in a bit of a hurry, since at 20u30 we still had to get desert. At 20u55 we were done, to our surprise they asked us if we would like a coffee, even though it was almost past our slot. Very correct if I say so myself, we friendly denied the gesture and made our way to the exit to make room for the next guests, who were waiting outside until they could go in. Overall a very nice evening, compliments!

    Great restaurant for dinner and drinks as a couple or with a group of friends. We enjoyed cheese croquettes for starter with mussels frites and flemish beef stew for main course, all delicious. The staff were really friendly despite the restaurant being very busy. Highly recommended and book ahead.

    The mussels are divine as well as the the Flemish stew. The restaurant itself is kind of a pub setting and we were immediately greeted by the waitstaff. The service was quick and the staff continuously checked on us. There were several birthdays in the restaurant and the whole restaurant joined in singing happy birthday which made for a very happy environment.

    Staffs were very friendly and food was good in general. The only feedback was that the Cesar salad came with chicken which was not listed on the menu and totally unexpected. Typical Cesar salad should NOT come with meat.
