I had Carbonade flamande and fries and beer. The food was excellent. So far, this is my favorite place for carbonade flamande. It tastes exactly how I like. I will come back again, when I come to Brussels. The service was excellent too.

Food was good, particularly the (chicken) waterzooi, a Belgian speciality. The waiter service was efficient, professional and polite. A solid place, in a tourist area
