Good food let down by very long wait between courses

Our evening here (first time) was disappointing. This is a large restaurant, with no ambiance whatsoever. We felt as if we were in a large hotel restaurant - very bright lighting, no music, dull plain decor, very old fashioned well used tableware. On the plus side, the food was good - truly delicious foie gras, tender magret de canard. But it was obvious from the beginning that it was going to be a slow evening. The waiting staff - friendly, smiling, efficient ladies, were excellent (and apologetic) but the delay seemed to be coming from the kitchen. We arrived at 7.3opm (we had reserved) but it was near 9pm by the time we got our mains, and we had a very long wait between courses...we waited 45 minutes for an Irish coffee and one dessert (Sabayon - wonderful) which made us wish we hadn't bothered with it. So, all in all, a mixed evening, but not a restaurant we would rush back to, in spite of the delicious food.

Good food, pleasant ambiance

We enjoyed a very pleasant evening meal here. The restaurant is quite large, modern subdued decor, but manages to have an intimate feel to it. We had a set 3 course menu, which was delicious and well presented and very good value for €28 (a Resto bookings special offer). The service was attentive and professional, so all in all, a nice place for a quiet couples dinner. It lacked "wow" factor, but we will certainly go again.

What impressed us about this restaurant was the very friendly, attentive and professional service. We chose from the game dishes and they were all delicious, nicely presented on very hot plates, and very tasty, although rather large portions - we could barely manage starters and main course. The restaurant itself is traditional in decor, with the tables nicely set with white tablecloths and flowers. It was busy on the night we were there and so it became rather warm and stuffy by the time we had eaten our meal - make sure you do not get a seat by the fire (which was not lit the night we were there!) if you don't like to be warm. We would certainly go again and try other dishes, and this is a place to experience a traditional Belgian restaurant..

I ate lunch here with my family, and the seven of us had a superb meal. We could not fault the ambiance and decor, but it was the food that gave us the greatest pleasure. Each plate was a work of art, and truly delicious. We all had the lunch menu - incredible value. We will be returning here very soon.
