Dinner at B!g Mama was good. The service was just all right but the food was good. My salmon was delicious, my husband's linguini was pretty good, nothing to rave about. The crème brulee was excellent.

This restaurant is well placed to avoid the most popular and crowded locations close to Grande Place, and we felt the simple menu looked promising. However, the food was overpriced and dull. Best part? My starter of the Belgian speciality of croquettes with shrimp filling...More
