Just had a lovely dinner in publico. Really nice and friendly staff. I'm at bit of a picky eater but they accommodated me perfectly. I will be definitely visiting again when I come back to Brussels. Delighted with the service and the food was nice too.

Our journey started with an exquisite house wine... the taste had unimaginable character that left the palette in a state of excitement, drowning for the feeling of more. The main arrived with steam glistening from the charred surface like mist on a summers lake as dawn peaked from the horizon. Last but by no means least the staff at Publico... More

Had a fab tuna steak meal with a lovely glass of cava to start! Attentive, really friendly staff who made you feel very welcome and helped create a great, buzzy atmosphere. Highly recommend. Also its in a really fun part of town, loads of bars etc.

Great atmosphere but unfortunately that was not matched by the flavor of the food. Fairly small and cozy with attentive service. The food just seemed to lack proper balance of flavor - wanted to like it but just fell short.

We came to the restaurant to eat and drink. The food was really tasty; we had the beef steak, chicken and pasta (ravioli publico - good taste). The staff was nice, they were helpful.
