Well, my primary school friends and I have known each other for nearly 50 years. We still like to meet, just us 5 girls, quite regularly. Well one has to sample the local restaurants, right? This is a find. Situated in a quiet, remote location and yet right in the centre of Waterloo. The staff is extremely attentive and friendly,... More

Situated in a pedestrian side street near Waterloo centre, this nice Brasserie can be overlooked. They serve very good standard French / Belgian fare, with fresh ingredients and good presentation. Has some outside tables although a little shaded, and has a good cosy atmosphere in winter. My 'go to' place, when I'm looking for a relaxed evening meal.

We like like this place and have eaten there multiple times. Standard French/Belgian brasserie fare, but very well prepared, very fresh, very enjoyable. I do think the have the best frites in Waterloo. Service is always quick and with a smile, but very little English is spoken (this is our fault, not theirs.. but they are patient so take opportunity... More

Lucky for us we got the last table for lunch, perfect spot, very friendly wait staff, although our French was non-existent. Of course mussels for lunch which were good sized and delectable, perfect. Dessert, cheese cake perfect again. Great place for lunch and the menu was varied enough for any choice Easily a place to go back to for dinner... More

Lovely little restaurant in Waterloo with great food and service. I had a steal, cooked to perfection and the dark chocolate fondue desert. Both were fantastic. I will definitely be coming back if I am in town again!

We enjoyed our evening meal. We had an aperitif each followed by a main course burger and mussles with a bottle of Alsace wine and then tea and coffee. Although the place was empty when we first went in it filled up quickly much to our amazement. Good ambience.

We had visited two nearby historic buildings and wanted a mid day meal. The Lady in the tourist office suggested that we try this Restaurant so we had their burgers that where very nice and value for money (not to be confused with high street burger chains!) to find this place coming out of the Wellington Museum turn left and...
