We were in Mechelen for a business trip, and didnt eat much during our busy day so we were quite hungry when we sat down at 19:00h on the terrace in one of the tables right outside the door. We waited and waited... nobody took the order until another CUSTOMER that was already done eating started yelling that we were still not served. This was at 19:20 after 20 minutes of waiting. So we ordered, then did get our drinks quite quickly... which made us believe the food was going to follow any time now. At 20:20h (so a full hour after ordering and a few times of asking) still nothing so I walked inside and asked for the bill for the drinks and to cancel the food as we were about to pass out from the hungre. Fair thing to say they didnt let us pay for the drinks saying "its okay" so I guess they understood where we were coming from although they didnt apologize nor offered an alternative solution (snack on the house, prioritize orders). Luckily there was a fare on the square of the cathedral where there was a hamburger stand (named Christine) where we ate a delicious hamburger at a fraction of the price we were gonna pay at Ellis.

This was my second visit in the restaurant and I was again not disappointed. The fries were not my favorite but the burger (the more important part of the meal) was very tasty! This is a good place if you want to eat something of a better quality than the main stream fast "food".

... but to be honest, the day after we visited Il Cardinale, which we didn't knew before, and they score (in our opinion) a little bit better. But, you both were very close. No reason to be negative about the service, food and other stuff. You were great, the only thing that was a tiny little bit better was the gintonic @ il cardinale. The interior @ Ellis is more cosy. Proud to be able to choose two top burger-restaurants in my home town Mechelen. Great job to both of you. See you soon, again. We had a wonderfull evening (father with 2 daughters).
