This is a cosy, gay-friendly bar and restaurant. It is very popular, quite crowded and has an attentive staff. The food is quite simple and is reasonably priced. There is also a terrace, which is very nice.

A stop for an early lunch on Easter Sunday originally I was going to have just a coffee but I noticed that they had their Pork chop with roast potatoes which is a favourite of mine and it did not disappoint

Had a really nice meal with an excellent waiter. No pressure to finish or leave table. Steaks were cooked to our orders and was a great place to eat in Brussels. Would highly recommend it

If you was to know what it is to meet real Bruxelles atmosphere ... you have to come here for lunch... I go there so often... the waiter can say what I like to drink or eat ... I do not have to tell ...
