Nice intimate restaurant. Probably the best in Aalst but that does not mean you get the highest culinary experience. Don't look for the highest creativity on your plate. Dishes are rather classic but that is compensated by the high quality of the ingredients. We went for the menu, which started with a glass of excellent cava. With it came some... More

Great 5 cause menu for a great price, cosy, warm interior. Super friendly staff. You need to book about 1 month in advance for a table on Saturday.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Aalst (my city): very friendly, good price/quality ratio. The month menu with wine included is a great choice! Recommended.

First time here. We were welcomed in a very polite way. The restaurant was almost full. We were pleased with the food: fresh products, good flavors, a wide variety of dishes and a summer menu with or without accompanying wines. We both went for à la carte dishes. My friend went for scampi's and fish while I directed my choices... More

When visiting Purple 15 you can always expect quality and a friendly service, so we gladly take our friends here for a nice meal. The change from the more traditional Wienerhaus to the more modern Purple 15 has indeed worked and the entire atmosphere is indeed fresh and contemporary, however I miss the previous cosy feeling somewhat. Anyway, it does... More

A very attractive dining room, with friendly and helpful staff. Main course was good quality, but the desserts were spectacular and worthy of a visit on their own! House wine was good quality and well priced.

Very friendly and helpful staff. We ordered a la carte.The shrimp croquettes were homemade although I've eaten better ones. The crispy, fried mushrooms with a fresh tartar sauce was spot on though. As a main course we ordered some Austrian classics from the menu: the Tiröler Gröstl - a monumental dish of potatoes, onions, beef and an omelette seasoned with... More
