We had a great late-night dinner there. I highly recommend going on half-price mussel Wednesday :-) The mussels were excellent, as was the grilled calamari.

And the mussels were excellent with perfectly adequate fries, we also liked the oven baked brussel sprouts which were replete with bacon flavour and crispy but not dry inside, we also enjoyed the branzino.

Visited yesterday, nice decor, good selection of wine, food was very tasty. We ordered the mussels with wine and garlic which was delicious although the mussels weren’t as juicy as I was expecting them to be. Servers were polite and friendly albeit slightly inattentive.

We go there for birthday dinners and it never disappoints! We also only go there for the mussels- other items look great but we gather for the mussels. It is sometimes a little loud as there is not fabric to catch any of the noise - but that is not an obstacle to going. We enjoy it every time.

This place is fun. Parking is easy. They always seem to have room for one more. The food is good, and oh, the beer......... hard to explain why it is so much fun. The staff is good, but very cheerful and they seem to really want everyone to share in their cheer. The food is true to its Belgian roots, and each dish is pretty special. The chef stopped by to apologize for not being able to use Tarbais beans in his cassoulet. Well I never saw the allure in Tarbais beans anyhow — but I was sure interested in how he cooked the duck, and it was dang good. But I am fussy about my beer, and they have some of the best anywhere.
