Despite having read that reservations were recommended, we went without and lucky for us, we did get a table. The meal was excellent and the service friendly. This is traditional Belgium food thus do expect to be quite full at the end of the meal....More

This is a nice local restaurant that serves food with passion. The ingredients are very nice and they prepare everything carefully. I like so much the ox tongue and cheek, so tender and tasty. The dessert trio is simply awesome.
