Our name is Belgian, our ambience international and our setting spectacular. You’ll find us on the quayside of Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, where the Atlantic ocean meets the mother city. Here gulls swoop, seals bask in the sun, and passing yachts enhance the view.

Take an umbrella shaded table on our terrace, at the African Queen bar, or in our streamlined interior, where wall-to-wall windows make the most of the picture- postcard backdrop of Table Mountain.

Described by restaurant critics as ‘one of the Waterfront’s most popular pioneers’ we’re now celebrating our 25th anniversary, proud of the accolades for food and mood we’ve received over the last decade! Enjoy the friendly ambience … our serving staff (judged tops in the Waterfront) is attentive and smiling.

Menus revolve round fresh, seasonal dishes with specialities ranging from generous pots of mussels and frites to traditional South African fare; gourmet temptations from foie gras brulee to velvet-smooth chocolate mousse.

Our beer is Belgian – both top brands and best-selling Anker Brew, brewed exclusively for us, are served on tap. We Recently walked away with the Trendiest Beer Pub award with Cape Town Experiences Magazine

Come relax an unwind with us …
