    A marvelous restaurant in the middle of the Red Quarter. It looks like you Take your Lunch in your Garden. Plates are excellent and Staff are on Top.

    Nice setting with view on to the courtyard; short but refined menu, would recommend the octopus, scallops, veal and cod. Service attentive- just a bit long wait for the dessert and bill, even though at this point the place was already rather empty. But we will surely be back.

    Great again. I've been there before, while the service was smoother than I've previously experienced the staff were exceedingly friendly, polite and helpful. Food was also excellent. The Guinea fowl is highly recommended.

    Lovely atmosphere. Staff were excellent and welcoming. We had the vegetarian options: small plates so you need 3-4 for two. They were all delicious.

    The location is great and the food also very good, unfortunately I was not completely satisfied by the service and the portions of the food, they were indeed very very small!! We waited too much to get the food, the waitress brought our starters first to a couple sit next to us which cause a delay as that order was supposed to be for us. They took too much time anyway for the expectations I had from that place. Portions should we revised with the chef honestly.

    For Valentine Day they had a special menu with monkfish which was served as codfish. It was a mistake.... One menu, one fish dish, special day and one makes such a mistake. Quality of codfish was also poor and dish was served cold so had to swap to the veal which was fine. Next time we come for a drink and skip dinner.

    Good food, well presented. I'd say portions are medium. The food was clearly fresh and the waiter gave great advice regarding dishes that would compliment each other. Super friendly and made you feel welcome. We used the table for a while without anyone ushering us out. Decor is fantastic, would be a good place for dates. Entrance is hard to find though

    The food, atmosphere and drinks were excelente. Service was good, but the staff seemed rushed, as if they were too busy to come to the table or when they came had the impression we needed to place the order fast... however, they were very nice and friendly! So I believe this must be a higher management issue, such as hire more personnel to cope with the demand?

    Me and my friend had a great evening at the bistro, seated at the window at the charming inner courtyard. Food and wine were excellent, as was the service by Nick.

    Great food, very friendly and professional staff, nice location and way they decorated the restaurant, lots of plants and images of leaves and birds (orioles).

    Gezellige mooie sfeer. Prijs is zeer redelijk. Eten echt lekker. Apart vond ik dat een menu duurder was dan wanneer je de menu-items a la carte besteld. Slip of the pen?

    It is a nice and cosy place, with a view to a garden which is really nicely arranged. The service was really good, polite, attentive and helpful. The food was what we exactly expected, we had razor clams and ??? as starter and then we had guinea fowl and monkfish. The food was really good as well, so we can only recommend having a meal at this establishment. Finally we had also tiramisu and a platter of cheese to culminate our meal. The platter of cheeses was really good, a really nice and tasteful selection. The wine we had with the meal was good as well and we tried one of their cocktails as well (mint tea with whisky), we can only recommend it as well. All in all, especial thanks and congratulations for an extraordinary service.
