We walked through Rue De Bouchers from St.Huberts mall. The street is lined with restaurants and bars. There are people outside each restaurant asking you to eat at their restaurant. We were there in the evening time so they were not that aggressive. We had a couple of drinks at one of the bars. Just sitting on the street with... More

It infuriates me to read that people still get ripped off in this horrible street, local authorities should close these places down!!! To anyone visiting Brussels, Rue des Bouchers & Petite Rue des Bouchers are to be avoided at all cost, for your own health and wallet! ! ! These restaurants rip you off, they know you'll never come back... More

The street is beautiful, near the Galeries Saint-Hubert, BUT don't go there during lunch or dinner time if you already ate or just want to wander : the waiters harass you and almost force you to choose their restaurant, it's crazy!!

Really really typical street, it is nice, romantic and charming to have a walk in Rue des Bouchers. But when the moment to eat come, please choose somewhere else...here you won't eat to much but you will pay a lot! Turistic!

Really a very nice place. This is the way of restaurants, characteristic full of lights, colors and fragrances. The many restaurants on both sides of the road. A mix of ethnic groups, in short food from around the world. It is well worth to come here in the evening to see this picturesque side of the city.

The food isn't good.....and this in almost every restaurant in this street. There are only 3 restaurants left where the owner really are Belgian. For the rest all these tourist traps are opened by strangers who come to this place to rip off tourists. When you order something......they mostly propose something else that's there speciallity......but you will perhaps get 1... More

Set in a tiny little road just off the Grand Place this is an interesting experience to walk through. Going past the many little seafood speciality places but be aware some of them are real tourist traps so choose carefully.

A walk trough the Rue des Bouchers and the adjoining Petite Rue des Bouchers is definitely worthy of a visit. Even if you simply stroll through the streets and check out the amazing displays of seafood in the front of many of the restaurants. It can be hard to refuse the constant calls from the restaurant staff to visit their... More

Small road leading from the Grand Place in Brussels with many interesting restaurants, especally for mussels when in season.

I just walked into this street by mistake from the Galerie St.Hubert. It's a crazy place full of restaurants and tourists. It is very busy in the evening. I wasn't so bothered by the waiters because I knew I wasn't going to eat there. I thought it was so interesting to see though. It takes only 5 minutes to cross... More
