Mesa Luna: “Nice place, average food”

We had lunch at Mesa Luna on a lovely summer day. We really enjoyed the terrace. Eating outside is always a plus for me. Staff was friendly and the food was ok.

My smoked pulled pork sandwich was fine, although I didn’t like the bun that came with the porc. I have to say I was disappointed by the three leaves of salad and the four slices of pickle on the side. The fries that came with my boyfriend’s bacon cheddar burger were way too salty. The duck that my friend ordered looked nice, though.

Really loved the glass of Charles and Charles rosé I ordered. A lovely drink on a hot summer’s day.

The restaurant is family friendly. It was no problem at all to bring a kids’ chair.

The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum: “Great place to visit with children”

To be honest I didn’t know what to expect from this museum. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Really interesting museum with lots of information. Really childfriendly also. Loved the little raincoats for the children playing in the water section. The huge insects were very impressive. And of course the butterflies were dreamy.
