Jan de volksschilder has a Very broad menu ranging from all sorts of meat dishes to fish to pasta... But you should really try the ribs, they are known for it, they are all you can eat and you have a variety of seasonings/Sauces you can get them made with. Not too expansive, young vibrant Staff.

Dip sauce; +€0,5 I paid almost €30 for mussels with 1 drink (Duvel). Maybe the reason why they don't publish prizes on their website? Staff is friendly and service is correct. Location is next...

Eat here once a year or so when visiting family in nearby Bonheiden. The mussels are always fresh and cooked to perfection.

I've heard from a lot of people/friends that the ribs are very good. Also the reviews said they were good. So i had to try it. But unfortunately it was a big disappointment. The ribs were big, but very dry. After 1/3 of the rib, we had enough of it. If you want to eat ribs, just go to Amadeus.... More

after a year or two, we went back to this restaurant ,years ago we came here more often,but now it was a bit longer. we fell a bit disappointed because, the spareribs were too dry, service was not bad but quality of the food was much less than before, sorry it will take another few years before we come back

Spareribs were good and plenty but lacked a bit of finesse in the taste. Lots of choice in the sauce to go with your ribs.
