I have been going here for almost 40 years and the food hasn't changed, neither has the menu. The brick a l'oeuf is terrific, the couscous mouton munificent and the Sidi Brahim lovely. As I mellow with age my tolerance for over-priced tarted up food for tarted up foodies withers and dies.This place is the real deal and long may... More

I am quite difficult when it comes to eat couscous, but in Le Jugurtha, I have a total trust. Never enjoyed elsewhere such a perfect quality and art of the meat, with a special mention for lamb! The Parvis de Saint-Gilles is one of the lovelyest corners in the city with its bohemian atmosphere, and Le Jugurtha is the place... More

Really good service & the food was also pretty decent. Really good Tagine, menu isn't in English & staff don't speak much English so not easy if English is your only language. If your in the area & fancy something different it's worth a visit.

I live in Brussels for many years and I keep on looking for nice restaurants. When it comes to this type of cuisine, I keep coming back here. Still by far the best: a special mention for the quality of the meat. Always impeccable. Definitely a place to be recommended!

Nice food and good value. Menu in French and the waiters didn't speak much English but were friendly, and it was easy enough to guess at most of the menu as many of the dishes are based on cous cous, tagine, etc.

Friendly welcoming staff, delicious food - who could want anything more ?? A lovely part of town this restaurant offers great food at a good price. The kebabs on skewers were delicious - the beef was cooked to perfect & melted in my mouth. A perfect way to end the evening.

Been here numerous times. Over the years this place has continued to serve top notch food. For the couscous lovers or beginners alike this place is sure to deliver you with a taste to remember. My favourite are the merguez but the lamb brochettes are delicious & not to be missed. It's one of the rare couscous restaurants in Brussels... More
