We’re back and can’t wait to see you again. We’ve been busy in the background rearranging the restaurant and launching our new website in preparation for reopening.

We’re taking the situation very seriously, and that’s why we’ve put strict measures in place to make sure your stay is as relaxed as possible. For us to do this, all we ask is you reserve a table, choose your food and pay online prior to your visit.

Please note you do not need any booking for our Bar menu and are more than welcome to pop in just to enjoy a Nice drink on our terrace.

This is how it's going to work.

Reserve your table online – we have 4 seatings per day, Wednesday to Sunday: 12pm to 1.30pm, 2pm to 3.30pm, 6pm to 7.30pm and 8pm to 10pm.

Order your food and pay online* – choose from our small but high quality menu and pay online securely with Paypal.

*Drinks must be ordered and payed for at the restaurant.

People who haven’t pre-booked will be able to enjoy snacks, fish & chips and beer outside, where you can order at the window, pay and collect as normal.

They all love our food.

“If you didn’t know that Belgian beer can taste of fruit; the national dish is mussels and chips; and Tintin hails from its capital, Brussels, you will once you’ve experienced this popular cafe near the pier. Fifty types of mussel dishes and the same number of Belgian ales are available, including the cafe’s very own Beer Me craft beer.” — Lonely Planet
