The food was quite good and not too badly priced for this area. However, despite saying otherwise on different websites, Gou refused my Sodexo card as a payment method. I dislike dishonest ways to bring in custom, so that was the first and last time for Gou for me!

Busy but fluid. Excellent service and a very good choice of nicely prepared and presented dishes. Reasonable prices for this kind of restaurant. Easy to find a parking spot on the nearby Place Dumon.

It does not have much of an atmosphere. It is a little uppity service. One does not feel really welcome. I remember they had a very nice chocolate souffle. In Belgium service culture is poor and this is a representative of this kind of culture.

Tasty, beautiful food, nice choice, salads are large enough - sooo rare in Brussels!! - attentive and very friendly service in a stylish setting. We had dinner in the garden and I already look forward to my next meal at that lovely restaurant.

I've been there already a dozen times, it's simple, it's always perfect. You have choice, quality, service, smile. You feel comfortable, it's always full but you don't feel it: it's quiet, fluent, efficient... And guess what: it's tasty!

This is a really cute but chic bistro in the heart of Stokkel square. The staff are very efficient and the food is lovely. A great lunch spot for either business or pleasure.

Decided to try the restaurant out on a special occasion. The restaurant is very classy while remaining comfortably cosy. The menu does not propose a (non realistic) multitude of choices but manages to concentrate on a limited number of interesting proposals. Service is courteous, not invasive but taking proactively care of customers' needs. Price is in line with higher notch... More
