Interesting decor, amazing food and great beer! Most incredible burger I've ever tasted! (The Australian!) and lovely dark Belgian beer to accompany it! Fantastic choice of desserts as well!

I met an old friend in Brussels and he had chosen Cospaia for dinner. It was the first day of the season for game, so game it had to be.. for me. My friend took Tuna, but I had Deer. Good glas of wine with it and all we had to do was enjoy it. And that we did. Good... More

Wow! What a nice find in the Toison D'Or area in the centre, nearly across the avenue from The Hotel. Very trendy with a young clientele. Wonderful outside patio seating area, great for a romantic evening or a warm summer night. Menu has a good number of choices. Food was EXCELLENT. I had a great meal. Good wine list. This... More

Although the decor is very nice and ample space inside, the food is a bit disappointing. We had a 3 course menu in which we could choose out of two options for each of the courses. For a vegan colleague there was not really a good alternative.

My companion and I were invited by friends. We passed in front on the discreet entrance... When we found it, we went upstairs and there was the (positive) shock: A terrace over one of the most active streets of Brussels, a wonderful atmosphere, outstanding and friendly service, great food at a decent price. We went to visit indoors and cant... More

We had a 3 course dinner + amuse bouche (a very tiny bit of salmon on a little coffee dish) using a Groupon voucher. The Groupon offer was 29,5 euro instead of 59 per person. However, on the restaurant website is written that the regular price for a 3 course menu is 42, not 59. And it cannot be the... More

The open air bar offers cocktail reception and pre-dinner drinks come with snacks. The room inside for restaurant can accommodate a party over 40. Good food and the environment is good. But the room does not have a door so it is not a private room facilities.

Beautiful location to have a lunch or spend a nice evening. (business or with friends). Parking available close to the restaurant. Nice bar where we had a delicious cocktail. In summer they have a terrace with a view! The menu's are very tempting and not expensive. We enjoyed it a lot. Wine was very nice and service perfect for us!... More

On Tuesday I was invited by a Dutch group to give a speech at Cospaia and later join them there for dinner. The staff was simply amazing with helping me set everything up for the presentation. My beamer failed and I forgot a white scree, but the staff simply took care of everything for me. The dinner was amazing. Great... More
