We thoroughly enjoyed the food at this restaurant but were overwhelmed by the quantity! It came highly recommended by our B&B as somewhere that is right in the middle of the tourist centre but is frequented by many locals. And so it proved and my...More

You should eat at this restaurant if you want to try Belgian food. They serve rabbit, horse and pork cheeks. I liked a lot the horse fillet and my friend also recommends the pork cheek which I tried and was delicious. We were just disappointed...More

We had a simple family supper with real Belgian cuisine. The stoofvlees was really good as a main course and the snails “in the houses” had a great garlic butter. Booking is essential I think.

Had a drink in the bar on numerous occasions and restaurant always busy so decided to give it a go. Not disappointed my colleague had the goulash served with local veg and I had rib eye steak both excellent. Restaurant recommended and will return.

Reserved table for 10 people. Ordering a la carte is possible with a limit of 4 different dishes or take the home menu: some very flemish dishes served in big cooking pots ... We went for the latter and were not disappointed. Great atmosphere.

Came here on a wet Sunday in November and my jugged hare with frites was the stand out dish of our 4-day holiday. Frites and beer good too. Rice pudding nothing special though.

Overall disappointing for one or our more expensive meals in Belgium. Our reserved table was ready and waiting and the menu came quickly. However, it was nearly 30 minutes before we caught the eye of our waiter to order drinks and meals. We had two...More
