The place is old fashioned, one can tell they have been around for ages, it has all the charm you'd expect and the meat is good although I would not consider it outstanding. Much of the hype may be attributed to the aura surrounding this bastion of tradition but perhaps the ingredients have not remained the same over time.

We have been there for the first time despite we are living in the area.
I had a choucroute and my wife a deer meat dish. I was pleased in terms of quantity (smashed patatoes plate was however not that big) but was a bit disappointed by the sausages. It was not the real thing it made me think of a hotdog sausage but otherwise very good. The other plate was rather tiny but very good. Like for another reviewer my expectation was higher due to price level.
An elderly and wealthy people area.

My family has been eating here since the 1930s, and have continued to frequent it ever since. The current family has been in place for around 6 decades, and the basic menu changes little, with, at its heart, good quality meat grilled over the open range fire in the front dining-room. If you enjoy red meat, in particular, the massive T-bone steaks are a particular treat. There's just enough seasonal suggestions to prevent the menu from getting dull, and there's a good wine list. Service tends to be leisurely, but you don't go here to eat in a hurry, but to savour the unique atmosphere of this 17th century farmhouse, and to enjoy the classic dishes of traditional Belgian cuisine. For sweet, the caramelised apple pancake, flambéed in Calvados is particularly recommended! Discreet charm, incredibly reliable cooking, and genuinely good value for money in a city where quality food and wine tends to be on the expensive side.

Very charming setting for this restaurant (building of the 16th century!). Very well known in the area for the delicious meat roasted on a open fire, great for the winter and with a beautiful garden for eating outside in the summer. Friendly staff. A place where you meet many locals (families from the (very) privileged area rather than tourists. One of our classic for family dinners.

A classic old school family owned restaurant. Quality cuts of beef (mainly) cooked over an open wood fire served by staff who've worked there well for ever!

Great food, great restaurant and great staff...even better when the weather is cold as one can appreciate the cozy setting and crackling fire!
