Very good cookie wafflewaffle- liked how the sauce and whipped cream wasn't too sweet. Great French fries and mashed potatoes. The tomato/bacon/cheese soup was soooooo good,...More

This visit was average in almost all ways. Parking was a challenge, but I advise driving past the address first to be absolutely sure that you identify the rather hard to spot entrance. The restaurant is a converted house with little to recommend it in...More

My husband and I had the experiance of a lifetime last year when we visited Europe. By a long shot these were the BEST mussels I have had since our return. Also the bread and pretzel were also great and reminiscent of Europe. I love...More

We eat here several times a year. Especially during the nice weather. The patio is great! They have a HUGE beer menu and some great ciders for non-beer drinkers. The waiters know their stuff and can make good recommendations. The pomfriets are so good. The...More

The mussels are delicious. What's not to like with a turtle waffle. Plentiful choices of beer and wine. Great place to meet friends and hang out for a few hours in the evening.

You don't have to brave the airlines to visit an authentic little European neighborhood bistro. Come down to the quaint riverfront town of Occoquan for a little boutique shopping and finish up with a visit to our cozy bistro for a fine Belgian beer and a delicious meal. We are serving up always-fresh, always-homemade European bistro specialties, a selection of 60+ Belgian and Belgian-style beers we know you'll love, and a whole lotta coziness and welcome. Are they the freshest Prince Edward Island Blue Mussels and the crispy-creamiest fresh-cut Belgian Frites? You bet! Is there a beautiful street-side brick outdoor patio? Yep, we've got that, too. No fancy frills, just great beer, wine, and good, freshly prepared food. Oh! And we forgot to mention the delicious Non-GMO waffles. But you won't...see you soon! !
