We , 4 adults, were looking to have dinner and walked down Rue Gretry where there is one restaurant next to another. Every owner tries to get you to come to theirs offering you free drinks, special menu etc. It is hard to decide so...More

We were all pleasantly surprised with this restaurant especially after reading the reviews later on. The staff was very friendly, the service was quick, and the food was tasty! Perhaps the management team has read some of these reviews and changed accordingly; from what we...More

The Worst touristic restaurant not only in Brussels. Tasteless food, Indifferent staff. Avoid it even if you are fasting 2 days. We tried Plain spaghetti bolognese and mussels provencal. I don't know which was the most unsavory. I would not go back even if it...More

Horrific from start to finish. Disgusting food; rude staff; and trickery when it comes to the billing. Firstly, the man who entices you into the restaurant is loveable and friendly. This is the only reason you’ll ever come to this place. If you read any...More

The service was incredibly slow and there were only three people in the restaurant. The place was not cleaned properly. The employees are extremely unprofessional. Wish I checked their reviews before wasting my money. Food is extremely mediocre.

Watch out for this place! Mediocre cooking. They offer you selections of like, salad or vegetales for your main course and then charge extra for that. Garlic bread is 1 €/slice. A small bear 5 € . May you never thrive!
