Perfect place for a laidback date night with a variety of great mussels and my favorite - steak tartar. The fries are great too, as is the beer selection. They often have Tripel Karmeliet on draft, the best beer in the world.

Our party of 8 enjoyed a great dinner at this very comfortable Belgian Bistro. Some of enjoyed the Prix Fixe dinner specials, others had the Moules Frites. All was delicious and our time there passed quickly and was quite fun.

We were fortunate to stumble on this little San Antonio gem of a restaurant. We called reservations and made sure they were able to seat us. The restaurant is small and separated into 2-3 little rooms. Our whole room only had one waitstaff. While she...More
