My boyfriend and I went here for dinner during our stay in Brussels. The staff were beyond friendly and were more than happy to explain the menu choices. The food was lovely and came very quickly. Very enjoyable overall and would definitely recommend.

So, I had less of an issue than my boyfriend did so here we go. The food was ok, I had typical Belgian beef soaked in beer and gravy and my BF had rabbit. The waiter did not bring out 2 glasses and forgot his frites so he was annoyed lol. It wasn't a bad place, you seat yourself, they... More

If you want a quick bite from a menu with a good nod to local dishes, check out this place. Service was very prompt. The dining room is very crowded, with tables quite close together. The menu has a nice manageable selection of Belgian beers from which to choose. The menu has fish, poultry and meat options. It seems to... More

Good food, good atmosphere and prices ok considering it's location. Great views upstairs out on to the square of the Christmas markets with the town hall fully lit up, enjoyed eating here twice on our visit

We have been here before so on this trip and hungry with limited resources we knew we would get fine here. Good service. Good beer and excellent Bolognese at 11 euros. Awaiting crepe with ice cream. Lovely Christmasy feel inside with gentle mood.

We just stopped for a snack and a quick drink, and enjoyed a delicious omelette and some nice cheese croquettes. Service was very good and fast, and it was good value.

I'm a regular visitor to this great café / restaurant near to Bourse and Grand Place. I really like the food here - it's great quality and reasonably priced. I'm visiting most weekends and bring all my visitors here to sample some great cuisine. The Moules au Roquefort are superb. Very friendly staff with quick or leisurely service, as you... More

I visited in November 2015 when the city closed down, but they stayed open as a welcome service in an otherwise emptying city! They are good for lone travellers, in this case female as they do not hassle for table space. Polite friendly staff whatever their age. Certainly cheaper than the Grand Place prices and serving a good selection of... More

We only stopped here for a coffee one morning in Brussels. The coffee was definitely one of the best we had in Brussels and the location is excellent, right next to the Bourse and off Anspach. The staff were polite and helpful. I would recommend.

Thank fugi08
