Fodor's Review

Originally a bouillon—one of the Parisian soup restaurants popular at the turn of the 20th century—this two-story restaurant is now a lushly renovated Belle Époque haven with a casual setting downstairs and a lavish room upstairs. The menu changes seasonally: lamb knuckle with licorice, wild boar parmentier (like a shepherd's pie, with mashed potatoes on top and meat underneath), and roast suckling pig are warming winter dishes. For dessert, dig into crème brûlée with maple syrup or the café liégois (coffee-flavored custard topped with whipped cream), which comes in a jug. If you're on a budget, try the set menus ranging from €30.90 to €41.90. This is a good place to keep in mind for a late lunch or an early dinner, since it serves nonstop from noon until 11 pm. You can also drop in for a Belgian waffle and hot chocolate in the afternoon.

Worthy of trying

We have dined here many times over the years and have always been well served and pleased with our meals. The menue does vary but there are always some basics for those who are less adventurous. The wines have been OK and the Belgian beers on tap refreshing. When I'v had oysters, they have been fresh and reasonably priced.
