    A lovely little intimate setting for a Valentine's dinner. Food was very good and fresh, staff were helpful, friendly and attentive but not obtrusive.

    Great quality food. It was very delicious Belgium cuisine. The portions are generous. Reasonably priced for what you get. The service is just top notch!! We are very impressed by the thoughtfulness and attentiveness of the waiters. Make sure to book a table since it was full house on the day we went. Highly recommend!

    Everything was excellent. The welcome, the service, the food and drink recommendation and finally the food itself. Sensational, we will return.

    We ordered an order of mussels “to share.” They brought two and charged us for two. It was way too much food, a lot of it wasted and seems like a strange 25 euro upsell.

    Dear Miss or Misses Wood, Thank you for your review on the Fork portal. I believe there must have been a missunderstanding in regards to your order. I believe you took a brie salade to share as a starter and then you chose the mussels of the house. In our culture we are not used to tables ordering main dishes to share, so our waiter must have presumed that you both wanted a portion. Although we are not used to this, we don't make it a problem. We certainly didn't want to give you the impression to sell you something you didn't ask for, therefore we would like to refund you the 24 euro cost of the extra plate. We hope you enjoyed the rest of the experience and the mussels in particular. If you could send us your bank information to our e-mailadress info@ernestbistro.be , we will make the transfer as soon as possible. Kind regards, Tamara and Bjorn, Bistro Ernest

    Staff were extremely friendly and thoroughly explained the menu. The food was exceptionally good, the fried squid starter dish was one of the best I’ve had. Overall food quality was excellent. Not very expensive either. Great choice for a home style Belgian dinner!

    A friendly place with decent Belgian food at reasonable prices. The staff were very helpful and happy to translate the menu for me. Just try to avoid being seated on the raised area at the back of the restaurant, as if you’re the only one there there’s a risk they’ll forget about you!

    Our dinner was wonderful. The food was delightful. We weren’t in a rush which was great, but if you are looking for a quick dinner this place isn’t for you. We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere though.

    The food was great and Waiter was kindness. I prefer Beef steak and Salmon steak. It’s delicious! About Belgian dish, Stouflee, It’s OK but I prefer other dish.
