We've been coming back quite a few times to this restaurant in the last few years and it's keeping up to its reputation. We just heard recently that they were celebrating their 40th birthday ! Every month or so they offer a specific menu built mostly around season's offerings and/or belgian specialities (always with a choice). Last time I had... More

The service level is above Brussels standards, the French wine list is great and the food is excellent (the size of the dishes is quite big so watch out for that), especially the desserts. Overall = 9/10

A fantastic discovery! Lovely restaurant with extremely kind service (boss is giving very good advise on wine), delicious food with attention to details... Great atmosphere... My friends and I really liked it and it was worth coming from the other side of Brussels to eat there. We will certainly go back again, the soon the best!

When you see most plates going back to kitchen rather full... Not very tasty, even if my entrecôte was rather tasty, well cooked to taste. The sauce, poivre vert créme never met the cream, but was well seasoned. I wouldn't advise the place, despite the good service.

We were regulars at this restaurant but the past few times were disappointing. Food quality has gone down. Service is excellent as always but the food was disappointing. See self explanotory pictures. We unfortunately will not return, not worth the money...

The VSG was good, but nothing better. It all started well, good starter, good meat but they really serve fries with it. If you want to run a classy restaurant... please, IMHO that´s a no go. Long waiting time for the dessert, loud location. I make it 67/100. Sorry i´m not that "good-means-five-out-of-five" customer.

My general impression of the restaurant is that they serve ok food but that the drinks are really out of price. We spent half of our money on food and the rest on drinks. In the end we paid 45 EUR per person. Each dish costs about 18 EUR. Deserts are about 8 EUR. As I like to cook myself... More

We found this place via the Michelin website searching for 'Best value' restaurants, and made a reservation for Saturday evening dinner. The place was easy to find and it was rather easy to find a parking spot in the neighborhood, not a guarantee in Brussels. The staff was friendly and courses we tried were delicious. We had salmon tartar with... More
