Super fun environment. Lackluster food. Annoying servers.

We had a blast walking through this bustling lively street chock full of cafes. It was really colorful and peppy. So quintessential! Our meal was a kinda crappy experience... read more

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

I know that lots of people can't stand the annoying servers that keep pull tourists into their restaurants, but as a foreigner living here for 2 years, I think that walking through this street is quite a funny experience, though. The food here is in fact not so expensive as others, I believe it is because many tourists stop here... More

We got hooked on the tip. The server insisted too wasn't included which was a lie and wouldn't let us leave until we put in a service tip for him.... More

How these restaurant owners figure that they can succeed with such an appauling approach is amazing. It is like the carnival callers trying to drag you into their place. The rudeness is beyond acceptable and I think this street gives Brussels a black eye.

Next to amazing Grand Place Square. Narrow street full of restaurants, but there are much more interesting and cheaper places, if you just walk through and go on. Whole street is made for tourists only.
