I've been to this place a couple of times cause I live nearby. Without infamy nor praise. The location is ok, just a bit worn-out, but ok. Standard Belgian cuisine which means food you won't remember. Except for the tomates crevettes (basically one raw tomato with baby brown shrimp and mayo inside) everything is very heavy with long-time cooking and... More

I was having a dinner with friend on this restaurant. The place is cozy with many old sign plates and street signs hang around the wall. The price is not bad (maybe because it's a bit away from the touristic area). The food that I ordered was very good (except the french fries which were not crispy). Otherwise, overall experience...

Quite close to the EU institutions so it was quite convenient. I ordered a steak with pommes frites and salad and the meat was quite tender. The sauce was also very nice. The decoration is somewhat hipster-ish. The staff was very helpful and nice. I think the area does not have a particularly good choice of places so this one... More

English text below. Décor de marché aux puces, carte typiquement bruxelloise. Il faut y aller. Looks like a flee market, typically Brussels plates. One of the place to go in Brussels.

We had been there a few times because its close to home but eventually stopped going The food is pretty basic and sometimes not very well cooked, Spare-ribs are the house specialty but the saladas are mostly ok and the spaghetti can also be an option. Thats about it. The service really isnt very good

This restaurant is located near Place Jourdan and thus very close to the EU institutuons. It offers a variety of dishes. I chose a Texas XXL burger, which was served with salad and french fried. The burger, except a fine bun, included 2 enormous meatloafs made from fresh beef, chedar cheese and special BBQ sauce which perfectly enriched its taste.... More

It is a small restaurant located close to Place Jourdan, an ideal area where to spend a quiet night with friends or family. The restaurant is small but very nice, with old-fashioned metal tags hanging on the walls, wooden tables, and a warm lighting. The menu is rich enough, including hamburgers, soups, pasta (not very original to be honest) and... More

This is a really fun place as long as you don't expect too much. The service is pretty abysmal. The food is good, not great. But soak in the atmosphere and you will have one of those "this is why I travel" moments. Mostly locals, live jazz music, and a great selection of beers. Order a high potent Trappist beer... More

You can eat simple and goodo dishes in a tranquil environment. Lights are ok , table are without tablecloth, like a brasserie, service is good. Food is simple but good, price is still reasonable.
