Very nice welcome, great size of Gin-tonic :-), warm atmosphere. Super clean, also the toilets. The food is well prepared although the fish we had was a little dry but nevertheless a great experience. Recommended!

The menu is in Flemish... More

We booked a Travelbird voucher for 2 (55 euro in total incl. booking fee). When making the reservation we informed the restaurant that we booked using the Travelbird voucher. They accepted our date (Sunday of a top-weekend) and prefered hour immediately and they treated us the same perfect way as they treated their full paying customers. Jo, one of the... More

We went there with a groupon discount and paid 18 euro pp instead of 52. For the price we paid the meal was definately OK, but it's really not worh the full price. The first course and meal were very fresh and delicious. The main course could've been a bit larger though, it was a small portion. The dessert (a... More

We have been back here with our group of our Wine Academy in november and I must say this was a very pleasant experience. Nice food at an acceptable price and good service.

Nothing special about this restaurant; the food and service were OK, but there are so much better restaurants in the city if you want to spend that amount of money....

The food in this restaurant is fine, and worth it's value, no complaints about that, but the waiter needs working on. When entering the restaurant, there was some enerving jazz music playing.
