We shared a delightful meal with another couple and were very pleased with each of our meals. The waiter was attentive, the food served timely and delicious. There was a good selection of meals. We will be returning to Istas!

Just outside the Brussels ring, easy to reach 1km after the Carrefour Léonard and a private free parking. Large variety of food and drinks at affordables prices, in the restaurant or on a large terrace
