Had a drink in the bar on numerous occasions and restaurant always busy so decided to give it a go. Not disappointed my colleague had the goulash served with local veg and I had rib eye steak both excellent. Restaurant recommended and will return.

Reserved table for 10 people. Ordering a la carte is possible with a limit of 4 different dishes or take the home menu: some very flemish dishes served in big cooking pots ... We went for the latter and were not disappointed. Great atmosphere.

Came here on a wet Sunday in November and my jugged hare with frites was the stand out dish of our 4-day holiday. Frites and beer good too. Rice pudding nothing special though.

Even if we had booked, they seated us at a table behind a pillar. Our kind request to change was ignored. The empty table near to ours remained occupied according to the waiter yet empty. They charge 5 Eur for what is obviously tap water...More
