We stumbled upon Le Petit Boxeur one evening while strolling around Brussels and decided to try it out. It had a very cozy atmosphere and the gentleman in charge was very friendly. The foie gras was amazing as was the confit duck leg. All in all it was a very memorable meal and we would highly recommend this restaurant. Do... More

Went there with a friend and have been sending people over since. Typical belgian/french food of very good quality. A tiny bit pricey, but the quality of the products are worth it. Also very much in the centre of Brussels when you're visiting. Will go back lots of times!

Had lunch in the sunshine whilst passing through Brussels on the recommendation of a friend. Excellent food, good champagne! The place is small but lovely, very classic, exactly what we wabtes. The tuna tartare was outstanding and the carbonnade de boeuf was also delicious. The owner/maître'd was very friendly and gave us some great tips for Bruges. We will be... More

This place has been around for a long time. Why? Because it serves well-prepared good traditional French/Belgian food. Well proportioned portions, service with a smile and good champagne. Well worth a visit!

Myself and my wife went here before a concert in Ancienne Belgique. It's a perfect location in the centre of Brussels, and the restaurant has a lovely cosy atmosphere inside. The waiter was very welcoming and the service was very good. The little puff pastry before dinner and the bread and oil were nice. We ordered two glasses of red... More

We found this place through TripAdvisor. We went at night round 9 pm. It's a small and old place that is rather charming and cozy. The wine was excellent as advices by the restaurant owner. The carpaccio was very tasty and the lamb ribs were excellent. The deserts were good as well. All in all a very good experience. I... More

We walked around Brussels looking for a place to eat for around 45 minutes in the main square. Lots of choice and lots of places rammed with people. However we took the chance on one last corner and stumbled across this beautiful quaint restaurant. The lights dimmed creating a beautiful romantic ambience. This restaurant has great service and wonderful food... More

Went here 3 times last 5 years. First 2 times were very good experiences. A little more expensive, but very well spent at the time. Last visit was a disapointment. Setting was still what it is but service was a lot more distant and a bit unpleasant. No kind attention anymore for a decreasing food quality. Wouldn't recommand it as... More

The owner was patient in explaining the menu choices to my wife and I. That in itself was much welcome. This is a nice quiet place for a couple to enjoy a meal out without listening blaring music. Some music from the 40's softly playing in the background seemed appropriate given the ambiance. The food, portions, and personal service make... More
