This place is fine but pretty average. The location is good being a short walk to the lake. Food is fine of traditional meat and 2 veg dishes. Service is average but everything inside is a bit worn and torn. There are better places nearby.

Had a pleasant lunch here. We both ordered moule frite. It was a little over-cooked and the moule smaller than what I'm used to in Holland. Atmosphere cosy. Service attentive.
