Outstanding menu! Just great the hospitality and the food with braised beef cheeks. There was even a second helping of world class mashed potatoes with truffles. All in all a great evening and worth every penny!

Very nice ambience, friendly service, food was very tasty, drinks too. Super dessert, in short, everything was great. Concert in a small cozy setting. Overall a great evening.

It was an experience of a special kind and will never be forgotten. The menu was a gourmet delight. We'll definitely be back. Likewise the excellent service.

The ambience can hardly be improved. The dinner is not Steenekuche but it was delicious. The concert was an experience. Is absolutely recommended.

I didn’t think I would enjoy the music ( not a fan) but it was wonderful and entertaining .
