after the museum visit we went to the Troubadour and choose the lunchmenu with the choice between fish and meat. I ordered the bass as main dish.Starter was Ok, but unfortunately the fish was already some time waiting to get served and was coldish. The tiramisu was very good.

Hi Went to eat with my father and my friend. We had to wait 10 min, but after we received a nice table by the waiter. We ordered chicken volauvent, mussels and my friend ordered a steak tartare, which arrived after 25 mins so we didn't had to wait long. As my friend was not capable to prepare the steak... More

A good selection of tasty dishes, nice wines and of course the Belgian beers. Also vegetarians will enjoy this restaurant.

They do an excellent job of Belgian cuisine. I had the flemish stew and my husband the chicken with ham and melted cheese. We were so impressed, we dined there again two days later. Again, excellent food and service. The dining room is also very romantic and has fabulous lighting to provide a relaxing experience.

A thoroughly excellent place to experience traditional Belgian cuisine at it's best. Lovely steaks and a wide selection of mussel dishes. Excellent service and good wine list - not cheap but worth it.

It was extremely cold inside as the door of the restaurant was open, several guests were complaining. The boss (probably the owner) was rude and extremely unpolite as he kept leaving the door open, when the guests were feeling cold. Old-fashioned but stylish interior design. Good food, professional staff.

Elegant surroundings -- despite the warm weather and the possibility of dining outside we preferred indoors -- at mid-range prices. I would have expected higher prices given the environment. A good list of Belgian beers, and an equally fine wine list, The menu offers various options but we went with the Flemish. We both had the beer stew which we... More

We ordered a steak medium rare which came well done and chewy. Salmon was eatable though but totally not worth the money. We waited long for food. Drinks we ordered never arrived at the table. We booked a table on a terrace which we did not get. Had to sit inside where was a lot of flies. Never ever again.... More
