We had a nice meal at Raphael. The service was excellent and the food was very good. This restaurant is located near the Grand Place and we were surprised to find that we could be served dinner at 7:00 p.m. The steak was good, the frites, were good, and the cod fish was very good. Don't forget to order the Belgium Chimay Blue beer.

Well what a find. We were wandering around feeling a little hungry and decided to stop in Rhaphaels.
We had had a drink earlier in the sister establishment Brussels grill.
The decor in Raphael is fantastic we got a lovely seat in the window where we could watch the world go by. A nice wine and a well cooked (rare) steak. A lovely way to spend an evening. For the first time in a long time a waiter who was willing to discuss which wine went well with what. The

The decor is interesting and the service is friendly. We ordered grilled meat and it took time. When it came is was almost raw and we needed to wait for it to get grilled. The flavor was good, but after waiting so long, almost all tastes good. The beer variation was great, the music good but loud. Do not come back.

Very friendly service, food, and quirky surroundings. Made a request for vegetarian and had no issues.

This place stands alone with no other restaurants nearby vying for the customers - Especially relevant in a place where ushers with pasted plastic smiles and pushy messages dot your path all around the Grand Place.
The staff are very energetic, helpful and cheerful and do their best to allow you to order exactly what you will love. We had to convince them first that despite being Indians we were not vegetarians and were indeed fond of beef!! A decent choice of wines exodus but the stuff we loved most were the Flemish Beef Stew (the spices and gravy reminded of similar stuff back home at Kerala), garlic prawns, fried squids and creme brule. Hadn't it been for the quantity we would have gone for an encore!!
The opportunity to watch passers-by from across the globe is another bonus, if you manage one of the 8 seats outside!
Highly recommended for a leisurely meal here if you have the time, once done with the Grand Palace.
