While in Tampa Bay we decided to eat at one of newer restaurant . Ordered their grouper dish, which was over rice with two asparagus. Presentation of the food looked good but taste did not have very good seasonings. Not a dish I would order again. However, our waitress was very friendly.

Belgium cuisine does not scale many heights so when we came across this restaurant that served dishes from Reunion we decide dto give it a go, and we were not disappointed. It had a nice ambiance, and the waitress was very friendly and helpful (although admitted we spoke to her in French). While the service was a little slow (it... More

When we visited Uele, I must believe that the normal staff was on vacation.  Because the waiters we met had little knowledge of the food they were serving. They were anyway very friendly and helpful.  The food experience was really great.  I had a lamb masalé. Obviously slow cooked, very tender, very succulent and great taste.  My wife had the... More

If you want to be surprised by original, flavory and fine food try this restaurant in Ghent. Great value in a place that doesn't get the publicity it should get. In the mid of one of most pleasant areas in Ghent. Not the most attractive entry and not the cosiest place, but the food is magnificent, a combination of african,creole,... More

This restaurant was only 5 minutes away from our hotel so we decided to visit on a wet cold august night. The waitress explained that the menus were only in french or belgian but she interpreted and explained the dishes. My husband is veggie so had the only veggie dish on offer which was a variety of veg including sweet... More

Wow This was a really nice meal we had there! It's an African - Creoles restaurant with a southern atmosphere. The service is friendly. We started with a cocktail and they were one of the best we had in a long time. Our food was also very lovely. When you go there try the banana baked in rum dessert. It's... More

We went to Uele last Saterday. There was a mix up with the reservation. Apparently we had been written down for the day before. Fortunately as we were there early, we did get a table. The food was excellent (especially if you like slightly hot food) and so was the service. I recommend the fried fish and dip for starters... More
