Went there for the 3rd time and still love it! This place serves the food I remember when I was a kid: steaks, Américain, mussels and ...the best fries. Probably the best in Brussels for the quality of the food, the service and the prices....More

Our great friends from Brussels took us there and we were absolutely delighted with the mussels. They don't come cheap as each portion costs between 22 and 27 euros but the portions are huge. Maybe even enough for two. We also had mussels a l'escargot...More
