If you want to have a high quality culinary experience then go to this place. It is in a location which does not do justice to this place. Parking is hard to find. But once inside you forget all that. The interior feels like a living room, they are friendly, the chef is very knowledgable and he pairs wines with... More

Great place with very descend kitchen. Quality products are being used to prepare the meals. The variety on the menu is impressive. Also the wine and beer choice is huge. You need a big appetite though cause plates are really full. It is in walking distance of tram & train station.

Here you have an unhyped restaurant with an owner doing exactly what he has to do : prepare honest ingredients in a classic professional way. A large choice of diffferent plates, but everything is fresh (so you might have to choose something else if your choice is out of stock...) : meat, vegetarian, fish, game ... all excellent. Don't forget... More

This is a nice little restaurant tucked away in a part of town that not a lot of people will venture to. Yet the place was absolutely packed when we got there. Service is very good, the wine selection and advice are excellent but the food is a bit on the stodgy side: it's nice but there's too much of... More

This is a review that is long overdue. I have been coming here for the past three years, almost on a monthly basis, to eat their monthly changing gastronomic menu. Everytime the food is seasonal, fresh and very well-prepared. The accompanying wines are of a high quality and the service is so friendly: it is never a problem to make... More

The main clients in this restaurant are over 60 years old. Decent food, sometimes a bit heavy. Big portions, but very tasty, old fashioned cuisine. Great for family dinners or brunches, in my eyes definitely not for romantic occasions. The prices are a bit higher than i would prefer. (but for this particular family dinner, i didn't have to pay,... More

Is this restaurant Michelin star material? Perhaps just not -- I, like probably many others I,tend to be perhaps a bit too demanding for that? Does it deserve a Bib Gourmand? Should Gault & MIlliau award it at least 13 or 14 points? Is this the sort of restaurant that I would love to find inb ANtwerp if I were... More

have not been to a place where you are attended by the chef/owner himself for a while. tastefully decorated place and excellent food. i dont say that very often, but the portions were a bit too big. if you dont go for starters and dessert you will still not leave the place hungry. all in all a very good experience...
