Was the trendiest bar in the area. There was a terrace at the rear. A bit more pricy than the rest, but the atmosphere deserved it. Service used to be great long time ago, then it deterriorated and then the place just disappeared...

It's not a bad place to go. The services is leisurely and they don't rush you to leave at the end of your meal. The food is acceptable and it's a bit pricey even for Brussels.

We enjoyed a nice dinner on their secluded terrace at the back of the restaurant. Nice ambiance, good service and excellent food! If you are staying f.e in the Renaissance Hotel (just around the corner), have dinner here!!!
