The little restaurant is managed by a couple of nice Portuguese people which makes it a perfect location for couples. The service is comfortable, friendly and cozy which makes it an unforgettable evening. On that evening we have decided to take a fine "vihno verde" that was well suited to ours dishes. As for the main dishes the octopus was... More

I chose this place based on the very many laudatory reviews. However, though it is cosy, the welcome pleasant, I cannot say that the food (at least what we ordered on that occasion) was anything out of the ordinary. It was fine but no more. My main objection though is that we had to wait far, far too long for... More

We went twice to this restaurant, once for a lunch and once for a dinner with friends. The restaurant is very small so make sure you book well ahead if you plan to go for a dinner. The restaurant is cosy, nicely decorated in a Portuguese style. The owner of the restaurant is extremely friendly and helpful. He explains everything... More

Last night, we reserved a table for 4 but ended up being 5. The owner seemed to take this as a personal insult: despite the restaurant being empty, when the 5th in our party arrived, he came over to inform us that one of us would have to leave, as he would not be able to serve 5 of us.... More

This place is a real gem. The restaurant is ran by a couple: she is the cook and he takes care of the rest. They are great people! The food is simply wonderful and the wines proposed are outstanding too. All this comes at a reasonable price. I was there on May 26 with a group op 9 people, coming... More

Excellent food, excellent atmosphere, excellent service. This is a restaurant held by a Portuguese couple (he is serving and she is cooking - ideal). It was the friendliest and most professional service I ever had in Belgium (and I live years for some good years). It was almost like we visited old acquaintances. The food is delicious and we knew... More

I discovered Au Cor de Chasse a few years ago, when I used to live in the neighbourhood. A small-scale restaurant, but with a menu to die for and a wine selection that is just as good. Domingo, the owner, tends to the table whilst his wife is in the kitchen. Authentic portuguese food, succulent and well-portionned, that always comes... More

You don't see these traditional restaurants around anymore, where one spouse hosts and serves while the other cooks. It's one of the many reasons why this restaurant is so charming. Our French is the worst, so we had a bit of trouble understanding the owner. But fortunately, he was very sweet, enthusiastic, and eager to find a perfect dish for... More

Got curious with so many good reviews so i decided to try it. First of all, you feel so welcome when you arrive. The waiter/owner explains everything about the place, food, drinks, and you can feel he is proud of the place. The food is delicious, we tried the the octopus and the cabilhau, and had the house wine. For... More

Husband serving, wife in kitchen. Very good and precise advices and recommendations from the owner. Good choice of very special Portugese dishes some adapted to the Belgian taste. Maybe a bit pricy for some (10 to 15€ for starters or 20 to 28€ for main dishes), but worth the quality. Without any doubt, i recommend Cor de Chasse
