We loved this place. The food was very reasonable and really good. I had the lamb chops and they were excellent. Very pleasant, friendly help staff with a lot of locals.

Lovely Belgian food and on sunny/warm days great to sit outside on the broad sidewalk with lots of people passing by. A good place to eat alone and with others.

The food is finger-licking good and it's potentiated by the beautiful art-nouveau interior. But, at the sight of turists (I assume), the waiters become inpatient and rude. With the regulars, on the other hand, they were nice and joyful.

I often go there when I am on my own, but also sometimes with friends. Good Flemish cooking, good prices, very Belgian waiters with good sense of humour and you never have to wait long for your food.

This is a place with good mussels and a selection of Trappist beers. The locals also eat here which makes it an interesting place. Since it is open long hours, the waiters can be tired at times but they make up with being friendly.

Went in thinking it was a tourist trap--I was completely off. The mussels were fantastic, with a good selection of beers. Service was efficient. Good safe bet for a good lunch--surrounded by locals!
