Visited on a 72 degree afternoon in February and were some of the first patrons to arrive shortly after 1100am. We sat on the patio to enjoy the lovely Florida weather. The beer list was solely Belgian (absolutely nothing else) -- Stella, Hoegaarden, and Leffe on tap with many nice Belgian beers in the bottle for reasonable prices. Menu appeared diverse and well-prepared. We had the moules in creamy garlic sauce with frites, Belgian Liege meatball baguette with apple pear reduction, and Vol-au-vent (chicken and mushrooms in a cream sauce with puff pastry). Meals came with excellent Belgian frites and homemade mayonnaise. Food was simply exceptional and enjoying it with fine Belgian ales was all the better. Really nice place -- hope they stay around for a while. Server did a few faux pas (mispronounced one of the beers, poured the sediment from my St. Bernardus Apt 12 in my glass, served my beer in a chilled glass) but nothing that should prevent people from enjoying this fine restaurant.
