Good food in this restaurant, situated at the great market place in Vilvoorde (place now closed during building of a underground carpark - restaurant is open). In the summer a cool place for a drink and a snack on the terras.

Ordered BBQ ribs. Took a chance ordering and was delighted. Large portion, flavorful and fall off the bone tender. Very good and hope the special is offered again. Be sure to try the recommended beer. Good location for its a short walk fom the hotel.
