We went here, following a recommendation from the Van Cleef Hotel. It's such a charming, cosy little place with fantastic service, wonderful wine and great food. It was the perfect place for a lovely meal with my partner. Food was outstanding - would definitely return.

This is an average Belgian restaurant with limited wine selections and a very limited, rigid menu. In general the meals are well made with an acceptable level but nothing extra-ordinary.

We had a table booked by the hotel van cleef management. The food was more than we expected and cheaper than expected too. This restaurant is small and must be booked to ensure you can enjoy its quality.
