When we lived in Brux - many years ago - this was a simply wonderful and eclectic restaurant to visit. We always took our visitors there - often in groups ogpf 20+. The whole atmosphere was stunning and the food was great (maybe not epic)....More

I was in Brussels on business, staying a few blocks away and decided to check out De Ultieme Hallucinatie by myself on Thursday evening around 9pm. The restaurant is in an old art nouveau townhouse and even the drainage grate on the sidewalk outside, and...More

I was in Belgium for business last month and was recommended to visit the Ultimate Hallucination. It's a little way out of the centre of Brussels but well worth the trip. A beautiful place, with the bar area entirely kitted out in green. I ordered...More
