We went there for dinner on a Monday evening around 6, so it was nice and calm. Johhny Cash was playing in the background and there was a relaxed atmosphere. The waitress was very friendly and professional. The food was good, nicely seasoned, decent portions and for a reasonable price. Will return for sure!

the band playing there was simply amazing. One can not help but have the time of his life there. Musicians full of talent, the entire place was enjoying it! a jazz experience to be remembered for sure!

a couple of colleagues and I had a quick lunch here and despite the lack of warmth from the staff, the food was really good. the menu was not particularly inspiring, but what was served was good honest food.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. Great ambiance. Very good but not exceptional food. Would definitely come back for a nice relaxing dinner.

Nice ambiance and big room for groups. Absolutely well located close to Bourse. Perfect place to have some drinks before going to the disco. Bad point are waiters do not come to get client's order, either you have to ask for the order or do not drink anything

People there are friendly. The atmosphere is nice but it has nothing posh at all and food is good and afordable. Pretty good "Crisis spaghetti" for 5?, also try the chili.

I found by chance this restaurant during a bussiness journey. Very nice atmosphere. Nice music, yound people, no tourists (despite being near the burse). The food very good and big dishes. Good priced. The staff not only is nice but also helpful and they would do their best to make you enjoy.

Recently discovered this bar near the Bourse and enjoy going there for a quiet drink on my own or with a group of friends. Live music on Sunday evenings often with a Cuban flavour. Good cocktails, great value during happy hour. Snacks and hot food served but haven't tried them yet.

The first Sunday of every month El Metteko put on a live band and the place comes alive. I was in Brussels last week and only by chance while sitting in O'Riellys bar did we notice that a swing band was playing across the road in a bar called El Metteko ! We said we'd go take a look and... More
