We have been here with three people, real superb tasting classic asparagus with egg and butter as a starter and sole with chips, salad and bearnaise-sauce as main course. I loved both dishes, and the asparagus was the most sophisticated dish, although simple in ingredients, perfectly prepared.

The pretentious image they want is not lived up to in reality. The food was fine, but not great. We were offered a buffet for a group of about 35 people and were served a fish with potatoes and sauce, risotto, lasagne and potatoes. There was no salad or any other kind of vegetable. The appetisers were served and the... More

Dear sir, Thank yoy for your review. I am responsable for the sales, communication and organisation. I have communicated with your organisator about the buffet. Your organisation/my client decided to keep the buffet standard; I suggested the dessert buffet, but my client desired not to have any more options and no wishes to enlarge the buffet. We only serve what... More

It's a modern big place, windows all around, a wide open space but still they manage to have a comfortable temperature and the food is very good, local specialties as well!

We were a large group of 12 people for a company who regularly host employees in nearby hotels. We visited mid week and the restaurant was almost empty. Despite this the waitress informed us that because we were a large group we could only choose 3 different starters and 3 different main courses across the group as otherwise it would... More

The fist look at the menu makes you think it is classic brasserie, but there are always some nice surprises on the list

The restaurant in a cold big unpleasant hall has nothing of a Grand Café. Only the view is beautiful. Uninterested waiters, slow nonchalant service. Most main courses of an acceptable quality, but nothing special, won't go back for it. The Irish Coffee was unacceptable. Of the four ingredients three where missing, only the cream was there.

Built on the site of the old Lamot brewery, this restaurant has unbelievable and unobstructed views of the Dijle en the adjacent old Fish Market. The Wagyu carpaccio has amazing flavors and is a great starter, or you may want to try the local specialty: shrimp croquettes, which is always pleasing. Sole Meuniere is almost a must when visiting Belgium.... More
