I've never eaten such a tasty horse steak in my life. I'm not a big fan of horse meet, however, the horse steak here is different. We regularly go to this restaurant and they always serve great food. Highly recommend!!!

We were looking for a good and quick dinner and found this small but very nice local restaurant in Vilvoorde. Very good and friendly service, specialized in horse steaks, but also has other beef steaks. Highly recommended.

Been countless times. The owner and his wife, as well as the staff, are very welcoming. The horse steak (or entrecôte) is excellent, great fries keep coming on request. For dessert, try the home made ice cream, you won't regret it.

they don't serve chicken or poultry. Alternatives are pork cutlets or a tomato filled with shrimp (belgian speciality). Hope your partner likes one of these so you can have your horse steak
