Book now


In a stylish and contemporary setting -- provided by the woody style of the restaurant we offer you a delicious and classic cuisine made with fresh products from the market. The restaurant has two different spaces of different heights, which gives a pleasant and intimate atmosphere.

After working several years for the former management, Olivier, the second, and Frederick, the restaurant manager took over the restaurant to continue the excellent work that was started by Pascal and Tinne. The restaurant features a fairly short menu with many suggestions that change based on the day and seasons. We always try to surprise you while keeping an excellent value for money. The wine list is quite extensive, so you will always find the vintage of your taste and budget!

The team is always available for any additional information and makes sure you have an unforgettable lunch or dinner!
