The food is finger-licking good and it's potentiated by the beautiful art-nouveau interior. But, at the sight of turists (I assume), the waiters become inpatient and rude. With the regulars, on the other hand, they were nice and joyful.

I had lunch here the first day I got to Brussels, I was heading to Avenue Louise and this seemed a good place to have a quick lunch, even if seemed a little touristic. The food was very good at the end, and I enjoyed the place. The staff is the kind that are used to have full place all... More

I often go there when I am on my own, but also sometimes with friends. Good Flemish cooking, good prices, very Belgian waiters with good sense of humour and you never have to wait long for your food.

A great place for a Belgian experience. The setting is that of a Fin de Siecle brasserie, it opened in 1899. The service was great, our waiter was attentive without being intrusive and a real guide to the menu. Our meals were excellent.

This is clearly a historic place, amazing fin de siecle decoration. Very polite and efficient waiters. Long list to eat, lots of moules and biers, as well as other plates just to nibble or to eat regularly. Ambiance and very good service, conveniently located in porte-de-namur. Good after the nearby movies. Apparently always full with locals. Good for everyday and... More

This is a place with good mussels and a selection of Trappist beers. The locals also eat here which makes it an interesting place. Since it is open long hours, the waiters can be tired at times but they make up with being friendly.

Went in thinking it was a tourist trap--I was completely off. The mussels were fantastic, with a good selection of beers. Service was efficient. Good safe bet for a good lunch--surrounded by locals!

Great service also. We tried the chicon gratin. Very good and tasty. The croquettes duo was good but not outstanding. Recommended.
