Visited the restaurant on a quiet Thursday lunch. Friendly waiter welcomed us, assigned us a table in a very rustic setting. immediately asked for drinks, appreciated, we were thursty. Ordered a nice starter, KOP met SAUS, already forgot what it was but it tasted excellent with a beer. So horse meat I hear you say, why? Well, because it's healthy, tasty and a typical dish in that great city of vilvoorde. French fries hand cut, mayonaise home made, salad prepared at the table by our waiter and a perfect cut of meat, prepared as it should. I took the 200 g steak, was sufficient for lunch, noticed the owner's mother (and former owner i was told) enter the house and greet everybody, i saw all kinds of guests, old to young, trendy and traditional and I saw happy people, those that want a restaurant for its quality and smile, nothing fancy, fairly priced. I liked it !

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.

Vilvoorde is a town that is known for its horse steak and this is the best place to eat it.
The restaurant has the atmosphere of a typical flemish cafe and is very lively and convivial. No reservations are taken but you can get a table quite quickly as the service is very swift. The waiters mix the mayonaise in the salad bowl at your table, exactly the way my grandmother used to do it. And the meat and fries are simply to die for. If you do not like horse meat, do not deny it to your companions : there are other typical belgian specialities on the menu which you will like, while the others get their treat.

The place to be for a great horse steak. Included nostalgic setting. Not the cheapest place but it's worth it

Smooth and soften would be an understatement to describe this kind of meat.. I would even advice non-horse eaters to go to this restaurant and try ;)
