Rue Des Bouchers is a street in the Quartier De I'Ilot Sacre that in my opinion is a street that your probably better just walking through fast and ignore the "wonderful " meal deals that the restaurant hawkers will harangue you with as you pass. The street looks pretty and both sides are lined with "authentic " restaurants but most... More

This is the butcher street of Brussels where so many restaurants are located. You can have great meal here. So many great restaurants, not enough time to enjoy them all.

Go this street to visit it is nice all restaurants together looks pretty But please do not eat in any of the restaurants, overprised, bad quality, staff is only interested in selling you expensive over prized food just avoid this street if you looking for a restaurant for dinner or lunch you will be dissapointed

Lots of restaurant with many kinds of food types but be careful with pick pocketers as it gets cramped the alley and small to walk side by side. We went to restaurant called Shanghai restaurant, not nice staff but the chinese staff are nice. Food taste are ok but little salty.

A crazy area with tons and tons of restaurants and cafes and lots of people. Great place to sit somewhere and people watch. Be careful with pick pocketers. I found it fun to walk through and experience this area.

Walk through the street to soak in the atmosphere but eat elsewhere. Only aux armes de Bruxelles serves good food (not coincidently the only restaurant where no one will drag you inside), all the other restaurants are not worth trying. This has nothing to do with Belgium. It's one giant tourist trap. But then again, some tourists just like this... More

Feels like a red-light district without the attractions, curb side totes, menus without prices and unbelievable deals. Stay away, 2xKids meals water and a beer set us back 35 euro, luckily we realised it was a scam and did not order adult mains. Waiters became rude and pushy, kids food took 30mins to appear, worst experience ever. The whole street... More

It is one of the most touristy streets of Brussels. It is full of restaurants, well actually I think it's all there on the street, restaurants of all kinds, and all the Belgian specialties (mussels, potatoes ...) along with pizza, spaghetti and others. I can not comment on the food because I was quite overwhelmed and did not eat there... More

The Rue des Bouchers is a terrible idea, whether you're looking for a pleasant walk in the medieval town centre (unless you like being heckled and aggressively cat called) or if you're looking for dinner (unless you enjoy over priced, distasteful and fake belgian cuisine). To be avoided.
