I entered this bistrot without any previous information, only because I read the daily menu near the door. I ate there the best asparagus of my life, prepared in the typical flamish way. The service was very good and all the food wonderful.

I have been here twice and second time my experience was better than first one. So giving it a second chance was a good call. My favorite dish is the fois gras. Meat is good quality too. So far the best in Rue des Chapeliers,...More

This 10 table restraunt has a gourmet feel with reasonable prices. 15-20 euro for dinner with plenty of food. 20 euro for big pot of mussels. Picture is of flemish stew. Nice big chunks of fish!

I don't recommend this restaurant at all since the staff is rude and NOT polite. We wanted to pay separately and the waitress began to shout at us. She said we hadn't said thank you etc. That's not what I call professional. The food is...More

Nothing really special. We ordered Mussels, Shrimp Croquets and Snails. All was very ordinary. Fries were too dry. I wouldn't say it was worth the price. The place is really small and you have to squeeze in. So, in general, this place is just ok,...More
