This place was recommended to me by my Belgian cousin who has been in the restaurant business for years. And it was a great find. The atmosphere is warm and typical of what you would expect in such a place. It doesn't pretend to be...More

Excellent mussels and frites. The beer cold and very well served. Local atmosphere in their fifties/ sixties. A perfect place to go before going to the cinema! (Just 50m away)

We loved this place. The food was very reasonable and really good. I had the lamb chops and they were excellent. Very pleasant, friendly help staff with a lot of locals.

Lovely Belgian food and on sunny/warm days great to sit outside on the broad sidewalk with lots of people passing by. A good place to eat alone and with others.

I often go there when I am on my own, but also sometimes with friends. Good Flemish cooking, good prices, very Belgian waiters with good sense of humour and you never have to wait long for your food.
