As a tourist one quickly gets tired of the tourist targeted restaurants with bleah food. It is nice to get out into a restaurant that is trendy among restaurants. Hungry Henrietta is much better -- and far more interesting-- than your typical restaurant three blocks away in teh more heavily tourist area near the cathedral, and the food is really good (which I make as average with respect to this type and price of restaurants). The modern decor is very attractive. The clientele was clearly local. Reservations recommended! (We got in by luck, someone had cancelled)

Hungry Henrietta is a restaurant that offers constant good quality food without the frills of a *restaurant. You feel at home, only, the food is better! What a joy!

Hungry Henrietta was recommended by our hotel and that was an excellent suggestion. This restaurant is located away from the tourist area, but if you stay in the Grote Markt area - it is a short 10 minute walk away. Unlike restaurants in Grote Markt area Hungry Henrietta has a smaller menu and less beer choices but everything is cooked to perfection. We had three dinners there, meals were excellent every time - sea bass and veal were our favorites. If you are going to be there for just one dinner then as one man said in "God Father" - "Try the veal. It's the best in the city". Dessert choices are mostly ice-cream, but this is the most delicious ice-cream. If you travel from US do not be surprised if the waiter does not come to your table 5 min after food was served to ask "Does everything taste good" - no need for that, they know it tastes great and waiters generally bother you only if you indicate that you need something. Staff knew most guests by name and greeted them with Belgian kisses on the cheek.

Trendy restaurant in teh heart of the city; very friendly staff. We had the maquerel as a starter (very nice dish, juicy and well seasoned) and seabass with mashed potatoes and raisins + chipolatta with garden peas and carrots as mains. Both good dishes (but a bit greasy). Nice short affordable winelist.

I ate there recently with my wife, sitting outside wedged between two gays and a coupe of prostitutes...oh the rich tapestry of life.
The food was good, not too expensive and I recommend their dish of the day, which I had...at 18 euros it represented good value for money. And if you sit outside, especially in the summer, try to aim for between 7pm and 9pm. When the sun disappears it can be a little chilly. Service was quick and attentive, and we would visit HH again in due course.
