Restaurant Fier – as in French for proud rather than Dutch for four – is uncomplicated dining Belgian style.
The menu is simple. There are six choices on the menu, all tried and true comfort food favorites: Burger, chicken, hangar steak, pot roast and a daily fish and vegan special. Each is accompanied by a choice of different style of French fries, veggies or salad, and four sauces.
Most of the food is cooked in the Big Green Egg – an ever more popular combined grill, oven and smoker. It turned out lovely smokey chicken, juicy burger with lots of truffle sauce, and succulent rare, almost blue hangar steak.
The opening hours are convenient. Every day from 10am to 10pm for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks at the bar until late.
The service is quick and friendly, the tap water put on your table right away without having to ask for it, the wine list short but adequate, with all wines available per bottle or by the glass, and the beer options vast.
The decor is simple with bare brick walls, a semi-open kitchen, a long bar and also ample seating outside.
And prices are quite affordable at € 16,- for any of the main courses.
We dined quite comfortably and without any complications!
