My family enjoyed the rabbit stew and the pork cheek stew. Both were great, as well as the cup of carrot soup that they brought out as a starter. Unfortunately that was all we sampled since we were full from waffles and fries earlier in the day. I can see how it would quickly fill up, so if you truly... More

Came here on the recommendation of a friend, and we were impressed. The food was very tasty. Service was good. This is a very small restaurant--make advance reservations.

Very friendly service. The restaurant is managed and owned by a husband and wife team. The food is delicious and a large variety of beers are available on the menu. Not the cheapest but definitely recommended.

Loved this place. The young guy at Hotel Boterhuis had highly recommended this bistro and really glad he did. Fantastic food and just the sort of decor and atmosphere that we like. The food was excellent especially the sauces which were to die for. Went back for a second sitting we liked it that much.

This food in this restaurant is absolutely delicious. My colleague had Moules Mariniere and I had braised pork in red wine. The meat just melted in my mouth. The staff were very nice and friendly however I do think the prices were little too high for the food. 25 € for the moules marinieres and 27 € for the pork... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before, and the good news is that it's just as good as ever. We went two nights running...the first night we took the easy choice and had steaks with frites, not a massive challenge for the chef, but perfectly prepared. The second night was Bass for my wife and the shrimp and tomato salad for... More

Had lunch here with my family. Ordered a special lunch set of steak which was a very reasonable price. Overall, the restaurant gives a great cosy vibe and food quality was good but the food comes a little slower than expected. Definitely a place to recommend!

This is a restaurant where the food is home made, and obviously so. Care is taken with the ingredients and the cooking. The wine list is small, well chosen, and reasonably priced. It's homely rather than flashy. I had the eel in a cream sauce. The portion was generous and the eel perfectly grilled. It came with frites that were... More

Excellent food, good wine, a great night. Small but perfectly formed. Very intimate and friendly, a family restaurant.
