Stunning building with decor interior. Not read reviews before our visit and so glad we did not try the food! Ordered round of beers and waiter got that wrong, when we told him he indicated that it was 'tough luck' and that we could have the correct beer when we ordered another round!! As for the toilets OMG they were... More

We were drawn in by the music. The band played Philly soul, Motown, Reggae and terrific African tunes (Mali? Senegal?) What looked like regular followers of the band led the dancing. Great fun. I think we saw the place at its best. Drinks only. Had to chase the waiter to pay, but he was really busy. If you want a... More

My child has a severe allergy to peanut (traces not authorized) and we always have some difficulties to find places where we can eat when travelling. The chef de service could instantly reply to my question (which is rare.. many do not even understand what I am talking about and think it is sufficient to avoid dishes with peanuts in... More

I was trying to communicate with the waiter and pointed to sausage on the menu. When I received my food, it was pig's feet (trotters!) When I explained the wrong food was brought, they wouldn't replace it with the right item. Nice looking place in a good location, but unfriendly waiters make this place a no go.

Wonderful traditionally Belgian cafe bar. Beautiful original decor from early last century. Great ambience with a wide selection of typically Beligian food and drink including Trappist beers. Prompt waiter service at the price to be expected inthe centre of Brussels adjacent The Bourse

Falstaff is a monument! When in Brussels, you should check it out. Never mind the unfriendly waiters and the overpriced drinks, it's only worth visiting for the decor and it's historical importance. I sat there for almost three hours, had two expensive beers while reading my book and just soaking up the atmosphere and the architecture and LOVED it. There... More
