The bistrot or restaurant, is extremely cozy, tastefully decorated. Great menu with a variety of fish and meats. Fantastic and charming service by a team who likes to look after the guests...The food was outstanding in quality.....portions very large.

Very cosy restaurant located at Oosthoekplein, of which the setting reminds me of Carmel-by-the-sea. One of my favorite dishes is the grilled "sole meunière" with pommes allumettes or the "américain preparé". Above average prices but worth the visit!

Running 20min late (three children had to be made ready) while feeling sorry is one thing. Being sent away in the most despicable way right at the front door while being accused of not having shown up at time is another. I can only explain this troublesome situation by guessing that our showing up was beyond the manager/owner. I'm saddened... More

Old style Belgian bistro, with lots of atmosphere. Expedient service, exciting menu and a fantastic kitchen. Prices are not modest, but you won´t find that here anyway. Location is in the centre of Oosthoekplein, and easy to find.

Lovely little restaurant which serves great seafood dishes (I had 'King Crabe' and 'Petites Soles') but also a good selection of meat dishes. I loved the atmosphere and the service, especially because of the personal touch, leaving you with the impression that you've been going there for years. I would whole-heartedly recommend this restaurant to anyone who values great food... More
