just a few minutes walk from the Grande Place, le grand Cafe was buzzing with early evening diners. Tasty vegetarian, cherry beer sauced duckling and... rabbit, washed down with potent Belgian brews. The staff were friendly and efficient, no paper was wasted taking our order....More

Popped in for an early dinner. Food was good, service was good. Nice atmosphere. Good location close to centre. Pricing was middle of the range. Would come again.

This traditional cafe is located opposite the Marriott hotel in quite a touristy area. The interior was okay but nothing special and the service was fine. We did think that €2.90 for an espresso coffee was a bit expensive.

The dinner we had was very tasty. We had some typical Belgian food, for a reasonable price. The location is very good, that's why we expected higher prices. The staff was nice and the service very fast and satisfying

Came here by chance, spacious enough for bringing in a pram, attentive service, casual setting. Perfect for tourist experience but also spotted some locals.

This Café/Restaurant lies in the centre of the touristic area. Normally we don't expect good food in such areas. Food looked really fresh and was very tasty. 1st class service A place to go back

Came in here relatively late on a Saturday evening. We sat inside but found service slow at best. generally a good selection of food and beers so worth a visit if you need a stop ... but in my experience nothing that special!
