Good atmosphere, impeccable service, good wine, great food! The price does not allow me to go back every second day but...for sure I will go back all the times I will need an extra smile on my face. That evening I was alone but it is a good place also for a business lunch/dinner. It is elegant but not too... More

I went for lunch and had the proposed lunch. It was excellent! A great discovery! We took the first wine, it was delicious. This is perfect for a business lunch / diner or romantic venue! The service is very present as well!

This excellent restaurant has not changed since being awarded a Michelin star. It offers excellent and fine European cuisine with a special touch (forgotten or rare meats or vegetables, unique combinations, an Asian flavour on traditional European meals,...). The blackboard menu is relatively short as the chef Loïc Villiers and his team only prepare fresh food. The wine list offers... More

Visited multiple times, they offer a very good lunch menu which is great value. The menu changes daily and they only work with fresh ingredients. Very friendly staff and an interesting wine selection. Always happy to come back.

Surprised by a nice welcome, very good Service, Easy parking area in front of the restaurant. New menu, casual but business too, calm, in city-center... Good for a discovery occasion...

Ate here for lunch with two friends yesterday. The ambiance was pleasant, the service attentive, however the food was a little disappointing. The entrée of prawns was well cooked with harmonious flavours, but the main chicken dish suffered from flavours that were too overpowering, and which did not compliment one another. However, the dessert of chocolate moelleux was outstanding, one... More

This is a lovely, intimate restaurant with exceptionally good food offering and excellent service. Have been going here on an off for a number of years and have never been disappointed. The food is imaginative, beautifully prepared and wonderful flavours. A little on the pricey side given the enormous choice there is in Brussels but well worth it. My favourite... More

Visited the restaurant 3 times already, each time an amazing food tasting experience. You don't go there to eat but to discover new food taste, smell and sensations. Each time the menu was different. You may pick whatever starter, main dish or dessert, you can't go wrong. You don't go out satiated or full, you leave light and having lived... More
