One of the places I go to to heve just a meal. Reasonable quality and prices, service sometimes good, sometimes bad. Good terrace, crowded on sunny days.

The food was okay, not great but okay, we ordered some dessert, we got it at separate times. My friend's spaghetti sauce was cold, we didn't want to complain as we already had sent the waiter back to the kitchen after he brought us the...More

You have almost everything here that you would expect from a local Belgian restaurant. The standard is fair but not outstanding. The assortment of dessert offers a complete collection and it is worthy !

The food in itself isn't bad but everything else can be, to put it mildly, gratly improved. Waiting times & service are way below standard. Even though Halle prides itself on being flemish half of staff doesn't even understand. God forbid anything you ordered is...More

We only came here for a quick break after trekking kilometers in the woods, it was a Sunday afternoon so only 't Groot was open (the neighboring cafés close at 18h). It's a larger café than expected based on the frontage alone, but we were...More

You have a large choice in Belgian food. Good location with in the summer a great terrace. Open whole day 7/7. Service average. Big rotation in personnel. Each time we came, other people that don't seem happy to work there.

We live here in Halle and eat at this restaurant quite often and we enjoy it! OK, the service isn't always top, but this place has its advantages. In addition to their standard menu, they have a menu of monthly specials as well as daily...More

The only two good things to be said about this cafe/restaurant are the location and the food. We arrived hoping for a simple Croque and a drink. After an interminable wait, we finally collared a waiter who took our orders for a glass of wine,...More

Excusseer mij meneer Frans V , maar u schrijfwijze is nu ook niet echt correct nederlands geschreven en bij mijn wete spreekt iedereen ( buiten 1 persoon ) nederlands. Frans en engels dus drietalig en ok het is soms even wachten maar als u ziet dat het vol zit dan moet u toch ook beseffen dat niet alles op 1 2 3 kan gebracht worden aangezien wij zo een groot oppervlakte hebben. Het personeel doet zn best om alles zo.snel en goed mogelijk te brengen en ik vind deze commentaar dus echt niet gepast. Maar ieder zijn mening natuurlijk. Ik wil zeggen iedereen welkom in groot café zo kan u met eigen ogen en smaakpapillen ervaren hoe lekker en goed het er wel is !
