A small but pretty bistro in the heart of de Waterkant. Great food, great service. Open kitchen with regular chef. Probably the best steak I've ever had - Wagyu. My wife is still raving about the cheese stuffed jalapeño peppers and beef bruschetta she had.

The place had great reviews and looks very cosy. The food was disappointing. The croissants are moist and all the food was way too fat. Stay away from all the cheese and bacon. Service unfortunately didn't make up for it.
