Located in the heart of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, this Belgian eatery occupies a cavernous space with a high ceiling, exposed wooden beams, and wall-to-wall windows overlooking the harbor and Table Mountain. Seating is also available at the bar, beneath a suspended wooden rowboat, and outside on the umbrella-shaded patio, just a few steps from the water. Specialties like the moules marinières (mariner's mussels, cooked in beer) are paired with imported Belgian brews such as Kwak, which is served in a glass so expensive that the bartender demands a "shoe deposit" until the glass is returned.
