Very good and personal service, good quality food, but my partner and I couldn't understand why it has received a Michelin star. Nothing special. Except for the price: too high. Correction: the food is too expensive, the wine by the glass is not. They don't offer a set menu for the evening, so you are obliged to take à la... More

Henri, who i believe is the owner/head chef, was also our server for the evening. He was so friendly and attentive. He helped translate the menu for us and even recommended a great combination for our meal since we just wanted a good experience. The one thing we HAD to have was the pigeon... which was EXCELLENT! My friend is... More

Lovely lunch, comfort food at it's best. Oysters very fresh, top quality choucroute, delicious prepared kidneys. Super, not too expensive, wine list. We will return.

We had a diner for two, place is well arranged but with rather quite small tables. Service was ok, though a bit tough sometimes, due to some rush. Overall quality is good, but it lacks the special thing you'd find in a 1* restaurant. Wine selection was not really helped, the advice was just for the most expensive... not really... More

Totally worth to get the honor of Michelin stared restaurant. The chef is a friendly man, introducing the menu clearly. It is a restaurant for local people; therefore, you should not expect the fancy decoration. However, you must go if you want to have a great experience.

From the outside you might assume that you've walked in a small bistro in Paris under the Eiffel Tower. However the chef makes Micheline ⭐️ creations from high quality ingredients. Reservations are not needed for lunch during the summer holidays. All other times you'll better call upfront and reserve your table.

Since our first visit was such a nice experience, I went again with the wife and some friends, and again, the experience was terrific. The weather was remarkably good, so we could have our apero on the terrace. You're almost in the centre of Brussels, but it's like you're in the Provence. The owner looked in an especially good mood... More

It is a very friendly place with local flavours and with the owner who is ready to help for everybody. The beer is fantastic and coming from the brewery next to the restaurant, the pigeon is amazing. One can feel himself after the first beer as a habitué! Thanks for the owner and for all co-worker in this extraordinary nice... More
