Restaurant looks good from outside. Chrystal lights, classic decor, facing river. Atmosphere is really nice and intimate. However, at closer look you see that each corner has spider nets and in some places paint falls off. Service was really slow, 40 min wait between starter and main. Food was good but not outstanding. In general would not go second time

A very impressive looking restaurant in a prime location. We decided to go for the 5 course menu which was really good value for money. We waited about 45mins/1hr for the main course (which considering the a la carte menu consists of the same plates as the taster menu it was a surprise). Food tasted great, wine was fine. Food...

Old-fashioned restaurant with classic interior. For the amount of food they serve, it's definitely overpriced: 60-70 euro for 5 courses dinner, every course is really small. The food is enjoyable but not fantastic. It's very stuffy inside due to a lot of candles and poor ventilation. Since the service is slow, you feel pretty tired after 3 hours in such... More

We previously had dinner in the "sister" restaurant "Allegro ma non troppo" in Aalst. And although we enjoyed that dinner we were pleasantly surprised. This restaurant offers a very relax setting: art nouveau decoration, enough space and the music we like ( some people call it classic) As appetizers we had pheasant (very nice with pine nuts and mustard) ,...

I am shocked at the previous reviews. We popped in on Wednesday 28th Dec to book for New years Eve. We were treated in a courteous & friendly manner. Which continued on 31st Dec. The food was exceptional, the service prompt & friendly, the evening was well paced, our wine glasses were kept topped up. Everyone was relaxed & took... More

We were invited out to dinner by friends who chose this restaurant. All started well, We all ordered drinks, a single main course and a bottle of wine. They brought a couple of "mis en bouche" to accompany our drinks and there were olives and other nibbles on the table. The food when it came was of a very high... More

Service was very slow (saturday night) and our waiter was inexperienced and untrained - fish dishes (when they arrived) were excellent however meat dishes were not enjoyed. Expensive and should be much better. Not recommended.
