If you like to try classic Belgian cuisine close to Brussels I would recommend this restaurant. Advance booking at weekends recommended.

... which sums it all about up: a great countryside location with a rather extensive menu including some real classics... the mushroom toast is huge and to die for! When crowded inside it can become a bit noisy, but even then it's worthwhile a visit. Obviously when you can enjoy the beautiful terrace and garden, you get the best of... More

This restaurant is a nice experience. I have been there many times. In the summer (however short the belgian summer is) there is a nice terrasse as well. The food is quite nice, I have never been disappointed. Prices are Brussels-like but you wouldn't expect something different would you? Recommended!

Slightly off from Anderlecht, in a very quite setup. Beautiful interior with stylish ambiance. Been there twice and well served. Sometimes the service might be slow if the house is full. But nothing to complain, the team is still attentive. The food is great. freshly prepared. The cod fish and salmon steak we tried were pretty good.

First thing to know: book in advance! If possible arrive before 19H, after it's turning noisy. Very good atmosphere in a beautiful place. It's good for families and good for romantic moment. It's just pleasant. Menu is fair, so are the prices. Nice garden, friendly staff, good quality...

Like the titles says, decent food (if a bit classic) at a decent price, but slow service for lunch during the week. Nice garden and interiors. Parking is not always easy despite it being in the countryside.

Had a business lunch here before attending a nearby football game. The lunch was served in the nice courtyard. Choice, quality and quantity of the food was great and prices very affordable. I will be back. Seems like an excellent place for a informal dinner with friends.

Went on a Saturday, place was packed. Food took a while, servers were friendly though. Quality of ingredients was good, would rate it as a quality family restaurant. When full it gets a little noisy though...

We visited on a Saturday evening. It was very quiet when we arrived with our 2 friends who live in Belgium, but it got busy later, so we were glad that we had decided on an early booking. The atmosphere was wonderful and the food excellent. Because my Flemish is not very good (neither is my French!) I thought that... More
