Chalet Robinson in Bois de la Cambre, Brussels, Belgium

One of the intriguing inclusions into the Bois de la Cambre parklands on the South of Brussels is the "Chalet Robinson," a fancy restaurant dominating a small island in the most algae-clogged lake that I have ever seen.  On the far side, semi-automated boats sail placidly back and forth.  It looks like a nice enough place, but the whole thing just feels like a knock-off of Le Chalet des Iles in the Bois du Buologne in Paris.
