Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 April 2016 via mobile

Au Relais is not the height of sophistication, but it does serve really good, hearty and wholesome Belgian food in large portions. I was back for the first time in seven years and was delighted to see that nothing much has changed. Located very close to Meiser tram stop in Schaerbeek.

OK, so in my other review of my trip to Brussels (see Hotel Plasky), I mentioned that the staff there remembered me. But, to go back to this place after five years and not only be remembered but also what was then my favourite meal after a similar absence does take some doing.
As I walked in, the waiter ( there is only one - not that they need any more) looked up, greeted me with 'Bon soir, Filet pur, sauce eschalottes?' (Filet of beef with onion sauce)
As I moved to a table, he followed with a bottle of the only thing I ever drank there, Chimay Bleu. 'Good to see you again, sir' My flabber was well and truly gasted.

Other diners - the place was over half full - were as approachable as ever, chatting or not, as I wanted. It is not often that I want to chat to complete strangers, especially overseas where language could be a problem, but this bistro just has to be the exception that proves the rule.

OK, so it is NOT 'fine dining' but it is superb in so many other ways.The food is great; the an wine adequate match. Or as I do, go Belgian and enjopy good beer!!

This unpretentious, family-run restaurant has been in business since the 1930s. I ate here several times and was never once disappointed. The salads in summer were absolutely superb. Located very close to tram routes 23, 24 and 25 at Place General Meiser.
