Nothing outstanding, but the food and the service were quite ok. Typically eastern-European grilled meat.

Nice service and good balkanic food, specially meat. Try cevapcici to feel like if you are back in the old Yugoslavia

The second time I have eaten here, the last time around a year ago. The recent meal was excellent. While two of the people with whom I was dining had grilled meats...succulent liver and the tenderest steak, I opted for a selection of appetisers, and this was perfect for me. The chef kindly prepared the mushrooms for me without bread... More

Menu sometimes depend on... More

If you like continental food prepared on traditional way from South-East Europe this is the place you should come and enjoy. Very well prepared and not expensive the mix grill dish is delicious.

If Balcan food (mostly grilled meat) is your thing than Folklor will not let you down. Don't expect gastronomy or artistic presentation bus since Folklor is always very crowded with locals as well as people of Balkan origin you can rest assured that you'll be served authentic dishes. The selection of grilled meat and brochettes are very tasty. My favourites... More

This is a very nice place. The staff is very very friendly (even when you don't speak French). We tried the mixed grill (super!) and also Sarmale (cabbage rollls - super good). Price and quality go together. It's not that expensive and you will get try something else!

A Balkan restaurant serving varieties of grilled meats, sausages, liver, beef, pork, chicken etc. as well as mezze style appetizers/starters. Wine from Balkan countries is also on the wine list including Vranac (although a Pro Corda was not on the wine list). The starters with a selection of cured meats and cheeses was extremely good and all the meat extremely... More

Brussels is well known for its food, but if you are not into french or belgian this is the place you must try. Excellent meat specialties from the former Yugoslavia in an enjoyable family atmosphere. Good wine and good quality food at very down to earth prices.

This restaurant specializes in large servings of protein, simply and well prepared. At first the proprietor was kind of cold to us (language barrier?), but by the end of the evening, he was bringing us schnapps to drink. Fun time.
