    Another hidden gem in the neighborhoods. The food is original with a touch of Belgian in it. Starters are great (Lobster and Maatjes) , the main courses were excellent and so were the deserts (esp. the crumble). The service was quick but not rushed and friendly. We were lucky enough to get a table outside on the side road which is very quiet and had overall a wonderful evening.

    Great atmosphere, great service, had to wait a little long for our desserts but other than that, could not fault the place. Very busy and popular restaurant. Thank you.

    Fantastic restaurant! The choice of food was brilliant, including meat, seafood and vegetarian options. All food was cooked beautifully and the wait staff were all fantastic - providing both food & wine recommendations! A lovely foodie spot in Brussels.

    We had a birthday dinner and we weren't impresed with main dishes, the spices weren't right, i didn't taste vanilla in salmon sauce at all, only florence fannel and celery. My sister orderd a steak and for the money it wasn't best peace of meat, it was all stringy. I toled the waiter all that, even if he did't ask me. I am lactose intolerant and there was only desserts containing milk, but he said he can bring me a scoop of vanilla ice cream without lactose. He could see i didn't like what i ate for main course, still they charge us 5 € for a ice cream scoope, whole dessert was 8 €. We pay for avarage dinner for three persons with two apertizers and bottle of dry wine 180 €, a lot. But it is really nice setting and atmospere, weithers were professional.

    Amazing restaurant with a perfect owner. He enjoyed explaining the food to us. Well appreciated. From food perspective, it is a good choice to start to know Belgian cousine (which is not marketed enough around the world). It is especially good for romantic dinners

    I've been hearing about this restaurant since ages and never had the opportunity to go. I went and it was great. They even had gluten-free bread :) Definitely going again!
