This is a cosy, simple restaurant with a classic Belgian menu. I had the Tomato & Shrimp dish which was fine. Nothing out of the ordinary. The tomato was not peeled which I believe should be done at a restaurant to be honest. The lady...More

We found this place, tucked away outside the city center, because of the Lonely Planet guide of Belgium. It has a nice atmosphere. The beer menu alone is impressing, both draft and bottled beers. My friend ordered the 'steppegras' which is a basically a (good)...More

Best goat cheese and bacon salad in Mechelen. Also the only restaurant in town that serves authentic 'steppegras' which is a steak covered in super tin fries.

Arrived late on a Sunday evening. Very friendly staff, had an exceptionally good stoofvlees with good, Flemish frites. Wide selection of local beers. Agreeable pricing, even on a student budget.

This local brasserie pub in Mechelen is an excellent place to enjoy the local Belgium beers and dishes. The price/quality is in balance and the suggestions are renewed weekly depending on the seasonal vegetables and meats. Worth a visit.

One of the few places you can eat steppegras (steak covered with thin fries). Plate was huge, but very yummy. Service wasn't super friendly but reasonable. Restaurant is fully booked moest of the time. Reservations can be made using the website.
