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 21st 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 like just-caught crayfish or herring flown in from Europe. Specialities range from generous pots of mussels and frites to traditional South African fare; gourmet temptations from foie gras brulee to velvet-smooth chocolates from a top Belgian chocolatier.


Our beer is Belgian - both top brands and best-selling Anker beer, brewed exclusively for us, are served on tap. Our winelist won gold in the '06 Diners Club International Winelist of the Year Awards, and our house wine is from an award-winning local winery.

Come relax an unwind with us. There's no pressure, no rush. We care.




From Muizenberg take the M3 freeway & Eastern Boulevard into town. Exit Eastern Boulevard into Buitengracht Street. Take the first right turn into the Waterfront and follow Port Road into Breakwater Boulevard. Proceed to Victoria Wharf.
