We had a weekend trip to Brussels for our wedding anniversary this year and were looking for somewhere nice to have a nice meal together. There are a few fine dining places we found but all fully booked for a Saturday evening and my wife isn't keen on places that have people outside trying to persuade you inside. We found... More

Went out on a date, was looking to have lunch somewhere in center and came across Raphael restaurant. Menu looked interesting so we went in. Great ambiance, good atmosphere, good food. We both enjoyed our meals. If you in Brussels I highly recommend it.

A charming little restaurant, conveniently located near the Grande Place, where I have to say I had, against all expectations, one of the best fillet steaks I've ever eaten. Try it!

We went for a walk along Grote Markt and just down the lane was this place. It was warm inside the quirky little building. It was full on New Years eve at 1pm when we arrived. Food was good, service was good. Yes it was slow, but it was PACKED. Well worth going in for a meal, you won't be... More

I went on Jan 1, 2017 with my wife. Place is small but nice, however we had a very bad experience and we were surprised the waitress didnt care or not even call the manager or at least offer a discount, which at least you would expect for the "level" of the restaurant. MYy wife's main plate came with a... More

A lovely restaurant near grand place. Excellent food including beef stew and grilled salmon although the service was slow we had t ask for the second main course,and the house wine was warm. The salmon and stew were delicious.

Near the grote markt and the station. One of the few places we didn't get harassed to go into. Very cute waitress, always a bonus. Not very attentive though. She spoke good English. Food was reasonably priced and good, I had the steak with mushroom sauce and fries. Very tasty. 4*

Last day in Brussels and dropped in for an early evening meal. Warm welcome and were quickly seated. Ordered steak and baked potato which was lovely and the Belgium beef stew (sorry forgot the name!) which was also melt in the mouth. Quirky place as the toilets are on an upper floor and you just seem to go round and... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal in this rather quirky restaurant whilst staying in Brussels. It is on the main street and we were fortunate enough to have a table at the window so we could watch the world go by. The food was excellent and the service first class. Not too expensive and well worth a visit. Would return.

Thank snawba
