"Le Bugatti" is a Belgian restaurant in Ixelles, in a calm street not so far frm Flagey Square (less than 1km). The decor is inspired from the beginning of the XXth century - very Art Nouveau. The menu proposes a broad choice of Belgian courses: Snails from Namur, croquets, tartare steak, black pudding from Brussels, stoemp... Everything was excellent, very... More

The Art Déco atmosphere is what attracted me the most when I find this restaurant. The wooden bar, the wide and colourful decorated glass wall, the red leather and wooden chairs, and the many paintings and prints on the walls give a wonderful retró atmosphere. Perhaps the owner pushed it too far sometimes, for example by covering every inch of... More

This place is amazing. Belgian food executed excellently - the rabbit, croquettes and carbonnades are all delicious. Great selection of wine and beers too. The interior is cosy and unique. I've been several times and service has been good every time (sometimes a little slow but always professional). Would recommend booking though as it's quite small and often closes during... More

We have been there with a group of friends at the end of November. The restaurant is very nice and well decorated. The atmosphere is cozy and warm. They also have a nice selection of beer to taste with a plate of typical Belgian cuisine. I had the lapin à la kriek which is sort of a stew of rabbit... More

Every dish we ordered was too salty, including the salad! I ordered some croquette aux crevettes and l regretted it. There is no taste of shrimps in it and felt like it was frozen for years before frying it. Horrible... I stopped eating croquettes since then. My boyfriend had entrecôte which was so dry chewy (and of course salty!) that... More

Hello Mr or i should say Mrs Bluemarie from Brussels Belgique or from New York. We saw your nice comment also on Yelp. I don't understand why, between your starter and your main course, you didn't say that it was too salty, since we always ask if everything is alright and we accept any critic in order to improve our...

We were there for dinner last Thursday and the food was excellent, service was very good as well and the price are reasonable. Lapin a la Kriek was superb and the Carbonade very tasty. We had a bottle of Pinot Grism superb. We will be back.

The place is fabulous... It's quite hidden so when you enter, it's a discovery. Menu is quite short, typical from Belgium and Brussels and the food is excellent. Service is perfect! Really! You'd better book because the place is quite small.

Good plain cooking with typical dishes from Belgium since 1988: Stew beef with cheek of ox in trappist dark beer, rabbit stew (boned) with Kriek, tomatoes stuffed with grey shrimps, homemade shrimps and cheese croquettes, veal blanquette, Zeeland mussels, sole meunière, saddle of hare, veal kidneys liegeoise way...; still a family restaurant, in an authentic and atypical frame: private old garage in a 19th century house Art Nouveau and Horta with a stained-glass window
