Just a stone's throw away from the buzz of Place du Chatelain. My favourite hideaway for tapas & class of delicious red wine with friends. Cosy, atmosphere with fab music and service.

Terrible service. I'm not sure how there are so many other great reviews? This place is maybe 8 tables max, with 1 server it should be fine. The menu is simple - tapas per gram (?). Meanwhile the server couldn't care less. We arrived first...More

Charming little place for wine and tapas, just around the corner from the Place du Chatelain. The tapas are great, really good value for money - a Spanish/Mediterranean set of olives/cheeses/charcuterie/jamon/grilled veg. Good wines by the glass or bottle. Super friendly service. Such a cozy...More

I went with some friends and we drunk a good wine and had some appetizers that were honest but nothing special, the fact is that a place like this should have a special atmosphere but the service is poor and there is none.

I can be short: the place looks nice, the wines and tapas are good, but man....Brussels service staff just isn't worthy of the name. A smile, a "good evening, how are you?" really ain't on the menu here....a shame, and unfortunately rather the rule in...More

We arrived quite late in evening but the lovely waitress kindly squeezed us in after clearing a little table displaying the menu. Then provided us with a free drink while we waited. The restaurant was really busy and I can see why. The food is...More
