It was the first time that I felt how bad service could influence your dinning experience. Even if the food is good, it couldn't stop me giving the lowest rate. The guy kept speaking French with poker face even if he knew I can't (same to the other waitress), and gave us the French menu, though they have English one.... More

This is an outrage. Strongly NOT recommended!!! The food is mediocre, and the waitress tried to trick us with the price, assuming that we do not understand french (big surprise we do!! although that we are far more confortable with english). Briefly speaking, they brought us a "bill" (shame !!! A piece of paper with a few words on it... More

I went there with 5 friends and we shared many dishes. All the dishes were perfectly fresh. Wine list matched the food nicely. Very nice space, minimal yet well decorated. We sat nearby the kitchen and it was nice to see the chef at work. Reservation is highly recommended because i heard from my local friend that this place gets... More

We went here with a larger group of colleagues (around 10) to have dinner. The restaurant, on a thursday evening, was essentially full the entire evening and service was, on occasions, a little slow and our starters for the group arrived at very different times which meant that some of us almost finished before the rest got their starters. Mains... More

But something hapened to the service,there are only 2 waiters serving all this space so they do not have the time to give attention to every... More

I chose this restaurant for a business dinner based on the Trip Advisor reviews and was underwhelmed. I know many better places nearby in Brussels at the same price-point. Tables not jammed together (good!), better chairs than the average Brussels bistro, but table ambience let down by cheap and nasty paper table cloths. Food only average, service offhand almost to...

Went there alone and felt welcomed. Open kitchen concept, staff made good recommendations. Amuse Bouche (cod croquette) was good, main was even better. Got the cod (or was it halibut) with mussels and shrimps. Love every bit of it. Price was reasonable for the ambient, food quality and portion. Seafood is fresh. Will defniitely be back.

We were lucky that we phoned an hour ahead for a reservation. We saw a few people turned away. But it's popular for a good reason — the food was outstanding. Even the bread and butter made us ooh and aah. I had the salmon (see photo). It was cooked to perfection and the portion was quite substantial. The accompanying... More
