Fabulous meal and friendly staff. Quick to serve good selection of food. Clean restaurant toilets could do with upgrade but clean. Flemish stew and vegetarian lasagne both well worth trying. We both ate three course meals and had 2 alcoholic drinks. €69 plus tip.

Ticketing staff were very efficient and friendly (and of course multilingual) Wonderful acoustics (I attended Musica Antiqua) for the recitals/competition. I particularly liked the Chamber Music hall in its simplicity.

Called in here to use the tourist information, it was busy in there & the people working there were helpful and friendly. It looks out of place as its so modern among this medieval city.

What is the dress code for an evening concert please? Would jeans and a nice shirt work? It is it slightly more formal here? Thanks.
