Lovely little restaurant. The menu is entirely in French so make sure you have a dictionary to hand if you are not familiar with food items in French. The food is very good and cooked freshly to order. Prices are reasonable for the portions and quality.

I just finished eating there 10 minutes ago (around the corner from the the hotel), and I had to write a review. Located on a really quiet street, this is the first time that I see this restaurant. The food was excellent: artichoke ravioli, fresh bread and olives, and a Crème brûlée... Everything was just top notch. I know where... More

Been there many times - food is always of high standard and waiting time not too long. Price level, however, above average which also keeps the crowds away.

Came here by chance, as it was close to my hotel. All the dishes we ordered were very good (we had both meat and pasta dishes). Dessert was wonderful - as we got a full pot of wonderful melted chocolate with our choice of profiterol and ice cream, respectively: fantastic! The only improvement required would be the time to be... More

We were thrilled with the exceptional meal. We had perfectly prepared filet mignon in a delicious cete sauce. We asked for rare and it was beautifully done. My fresh pasta on the side was as good as in Rome. Lovely ambience and so reasonably priced. Delicious house wine. Couldn't have been more pleased!

Dined here solo while traveling for business. Wanted a simple quality meal. This place delivered. Good, flavorsome, fresh food with quality ingredients. Relaxed environment. The wine list could have been better, but this was just what I wanted

Been there often. Now a smiling and nice waiter, but I'd expect better meat quality when I pay €23.50 for an entrecote. I will give the place another chance, but not as happy today as before, except for the friendly waiter.

This restaurant was walking distance from my hotel in Brussels. I went there after a very long day on the recommendation of the concierge. The menu had excellent choices for a restaurant of this size. My steak was one of the best I have had, the citrus salad dressing very good.

Our meals were lovely even though a little on the small side, only down side of this restaurant is we could not order wine by the glass and not knowing the wines on the board we opted for water.
