We had a delicious family-style lunch with a group at this restaurant, which is on a boat on the Izer River right across from the WWI museum.

Though the canal here doesn't necessarily provide spectacular views, the food and service here was perfect. It was great to eat here and then walk across the street to visit the World War I museum.

Looking fairly unprepossessing from the outside, this restaurant packs a knockout punch for its sheer theatricality. Opening the door, you find yourself looking down into a space something like a cross between the Titanic, an opium den, and the Tate Modern. And just when you...More

A little expensive for what you get, small choice of menu. Food tastes good. Serving by waiters can be better. They didn't ask if you want desert and didn't take the plates away after the last course, it took half an hour. We had to...More
