They have changed owner but they are still one of my favorites. But reservations are needed if eating after 1900

Despite being the last customer of the evening, I received friendly service and great food. The 3-course prix-fixe dinner for 25 Euros was very reasonably priced. I chose the mussels cooked in white wine, which were fresh and clean, and the steak au poivre, which as done exactly the way I liked it, rare. Both came out piping hot, and... More

The food is excellent but they don't have free water. For the water, you have to pay an additionnal crazy price of 4€ an half litre. It impose you to pay a lot just to have basic drikes. After, the dessert are also expensive (from 7€ to 10€). Except this, it was really sympaticle Good food, excellent saucage, a little... More

This place used to be a historical one, with the best Dover Soles in town. I learned it closed down and was for sale for a year and now there is a new property. The Dover sole has gone as well as the former atmosphere. Low prices, adapted to the cuisine level.

I don't often give 5 star ratings, and this is the first time I have given 5 to a restaurant that is not an upmarket fine dining experience. Everything about our evening here was perfect, and reinforced our opinion that Belgium is the friendliest and foodiest country in Europe. Jacques is a fairly modest, rustic restaurant, frequented by locals, but... More

We stopped for lunch whilst visiting the Christmas market. What an amazing find. We had the set lunch for €18. Amazing value three course meal. I upgraded to the lobster. Terrific. The whole bill was just €80 for three of us including wine. Loved it!

I did not find the restaurant special. The salade nicoise for example had canned tuna fish poured into it and the baked salmon was served with French fries. Possibly you have to stick with the specialties. I think the tourist should stay away and let the locals have the place to themselves. I do not think this would bother the... More
