A strong combination of high quality food and a pleasant informal atmosphere. We ordered as a group of 8 'van alles wat' which is a dish of several thin carpacio 'sliced' meat as an appetizer. From the menu you can order different type/kinds of meat from several countries. It has a delicate taste and melts in your mouth. Your selected... More

Let's be clear, I AM NOT A MEAT LOVER... That being said I have to admit I really enjoyed the place, the recommendations, the explanations given and the humour of the owner. The piece of meat that I ordered was just ultra tender, exactly cooked as I asked and accompanied with tasty mushrooms and home made Belgium fries. The desert... More

I've been here for lunch with a colleague. The place is nice and cozy, furniture is minimalistic and clean. Service is quick and kind but not all staff speaks french. Food is delicious, i got an aged american sirlon which was amazing, it was melting once put in the mouth, the sauce they served with was also very nice even... More

A good evening, cheerful service, great choice of excellent meat. They know what they are doing ! Crowded when we were there, but the noise level was still ok. A warm atmosphere of customers and staff who are in a good mood and enjoy being there.

The food was more or less OK. Nothing special. The service very slow. We had to wait more than an hour for our meal. The service was crap. The owner very rude and impolite the French lady too. I was with my friends for the first time and it was a trial for a big birthday party we wanted to... More

Great steak, poor service, that sums it up. I recognize multiple remarks of other reviewers about the service. The French speaking lady that is currently working there is not the issue, although she could raise her voice a bit in volume, but she is at least friendly. The owners however ... arrogant and cocky. You will not last if you... More

This place is a must go. The food and sauces are simply superb. Coupled with fine wines from around the world and local beers makes it the perfect combination. I would 100% recommend this restaurant. The comments on here who question this place I would simply suggest do not understand fine food. I can see why this venue is Michelin... More

Found this while on a business trip. Absolutely amazing food, very helpful and courteous staff who fully explained the breeds of cow and cuts of the steaks. A must visit if you are near Brussels airport!

I was taken to this restaurant by colleagues on a recent trip to Brussels, I don't like steak much, if I order a steak normally I ask for "well done" when I ordered a well done steak the answer I received was a blunt NO at which point I told them to cook it as they see fit. When my... More

If you are looking for a good meat reastaurant for special occasions then this is the place to go. Is towards the expensive side, but you can find different kind of meats (beef from Belgium, Scotland, Holland, France, Germany or US, horse from Canada, veal, porc from Spain), all very tasty and well prepared. Location is in the centre of... More
