We never got any bread and the service was slow. We waited about 40 minutes for food. The dishes and ambiance and location are good. As we payed the waiter explained that they were currently understaffed.

If you like grilled meats, then this is your kind of restaurant. My wife had a Brochette and I had a Mixed Grill. Plenty of food, very well prepared and tasty. This is Belgian style at its best. Great Value.

We were lucky enough to get a table for two, last minute by calling up on the evening we went. This place is popular and for good reason, so I would suggest you booked well in advance! My prawn main was a good sized portion...More
