Restaurant near Grand Palace

Only in Brussels for one night staying beside Grand Palace, any recommendations for a good meal near by as we will be arriving late in Belgium. Many thanks.

1. Re: Restaurant near Grand Palace

There is no Grand PALACE in Brussels - there is a Royal Palace (indeed, 2), and a Grand' PLACE (Grote Markt, Market Square). Assuming that this is what you mean, what do you mean by "near" (which side? It makes a difference!), what you mean by "late", and what sort of food do you want to eat?

In the Galeries St. Hubert (between rue du Marché aux Herbes and rue de l'Ecuyer), the kitchen of La Taverne du Passage is open till midnight: www.taverne-du-passage.be/fr/bienvenue/ (for the menu, click on "à la carte", not "menu" - the latter meaning SET menu).

In the Grand' Place itself, La Rose Blanche is open till 1 a.m. - as are La Brouette and Le Roy d'Espagne but for eating I think the first mentioned would be your best bet: diningcity.com/restaurants/…index.html

Otherwise, loads of places around the Bourse and Place St. Géry are open.

sorry typo - we actually staying in Rue Auguste Orts just off Grand Place and plan to eat around 9.00 p.m onwards so didn't want to walk very far or travel on the metro. Thank you for your reply.

21:00 hrs is not late for dining in Brussels. But anyway Rue A. Orts is opposite the Bourse, and as I mentioned, there are loads of places around there that are open late, including all those around Place St. Géry. In the opposite direction from the Bourse, rue A. Orts becomes A. Dansaert, and while I still don't know what sort of food you want to eat, in rue Dansaert you will find the Moroccan La Kasbah (http://www.lakasbahresto.com/fr/carte) and French/Mediterranean Bonsoir Clara (http://www.bonsoirclara.com/fr/carte). In nearby rue St. Catherine you have loads of Asian restaurants.

In rue Orts itself, at no. 19, you have the cheap and cheerful (not gourmet) restaurant "La Bourse", which is open till 23:30. See tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g188644-d1…

It would take you 5-10 minutes to walk to the GP, a little further to the Galeries St. Hubert for traditional Belgian cuisine (La Taverne du Passage).

Thank you, we like French/Belgium & seafood the best. Is the best way to get to Bourse from Gare du Midi by taking the metro?

Yes, at Midi follow M signs to the metro, which will bring you to the ticket office, and then signs for (underground) trams 3 and 4 in the direction Gare du Nord. It's 3 stops to Bourse.

For seafood, you are also not far from the St. Catherine area (e.g. Eb en Vloed, behind the church - …quintagroup.com/eb_en_vloed3/…index_html zoom out a little to see Bourse at bottom edge of map) or you can of course get Belgian mussel dishes at the Bourse restaurant already mentioned: http://www.deltaweb.be/restaurant-Restaurant-de-la-Bourse+4043+e

Hi actually now arriving in Brussels earlier than expected so will be eating about 8.00 p.m. Is Mer du Nord open at night time as it looks fun from the reviews? Also as eating earlier any other recommendations near by? Thanks

No it isn't, as it's really a shop rather than a restaurant. One hour earlier makes no difference whatsoever to recommendations already given and having already mentioned 6 restaurants, just how many more do you want? You might as well browse www.resto.be for yourself!
