We asked to sit inside because it was cold and they didnt let us although there were many empty tables. When we asked why the guy replied " i am the boss"!!

Great wine and charcuterie place, great atmosphere, decent priced dishes, yet it only got 3 stars from us because we came for dinner and wanted a bit more ample dishes. Would recommend as a place to meet friends with wine and nibbles.

If you are in Ixelles, just try this as it's great food for a decent price. You might have to wait a bit as it is often packed, but it's worth going!
