On last visit two years ago we were disappointed by the food, the service and prices. But we were pleasantly surprised when our group of seven was there recently. The food was excellent, the prices reasonable and the service attentive. And a very good beer...More

The chateaubriand still as tender and juicy as I remember. The most delicious steak you'll eat. Hands down. Worth coming all the way from London for. Will be back next year.

We happen to find this restaurant/cafe. They do have a large Belgium beer selection. We came in towards closing time so they were a bit pushy but who wouldn't be when they want to go home. I would return but maybe with more time.

Nice little place just off the main streets. Outside seating but it was way too cold for that in December! Various local dishes and a great range of beers. Staff weren't particularly friendly but that may just have been a language thing (we were speaking...More

As a solo traveller and non Belgian I was made to feel a little awkward like it was weird I was alone. The food was ok and service ok. Toilets were quite dirty and needed a clean.

Offers a shady spot for lunch on a no-cars part of Brussels' attractive and lively St Catherine's district. But we found the food a bit disappointing: the pâté de volaille wasn't very nice and the servings were too big. The salmon tartare was a bit...More

Had a steak and vol au vent here. The food is quite tasty. No sauce comes with fries and that is thoughtless of the owners not to foresee. The service is quite friendly and great for Belgian standards. If you sit outside you get a...More

In the Fashion & Design district of Brussels, the famous Rue Dansaert, 2 minutes away from Grand'Place, discover an oasis of decontraction and culinary exception. On cool days, around an old furnace, or as soon as the sun shines, on our terrace under the platanes, offer yourself the charming atmosphere of a brasserie-restaurant where local artists and inhabitants like to stop the time for one of the 52 beers, a drink, a grilled meat, a specialty or a dessert. Modernity and tradition.
