If you are looking for a place with traditional Belgium food in the center for a reasonable price this is the place. The quality is not the best but is a good option.

Came here because of the reviews. Nothing special at all. Salmon was dry and overcooked, moules - average good. A place to have a quick meal but not spend a pleasant evening.

Good restaurant to try the local food. We had the mussles and two serves of chips and it was enough to share between two of us since you also received a basket of bread. Have been to a better restaurant with mussles but this is...More
