Got dragged into one of the many restaurants on the rue des Bouchers. The waiter was surly, verging rude. We realised we'd made a mistake as soon as we placed our order. However, as service became worse, we walked out. We politely explained to the owner, who was still outside his restaurant touting business, that if he concentrated on the... More

If you love fish then its here you go to have your fill. Ofcourse its touristy and therefore rates are high. But you do it just once or like me maybe twice. Its not often that I can eat mussels so thats what I had 2 days in a row. The restaurants are cheek by jowl and everyone has their... More

You've been warned! Luckily our host warned us prior to visiting this area. He informed us of the aggressive nature of the hostess/ hostesses. You have to walk through this area due to some local attractions ( DELIRIUM CAFE, highly recommend ) The food looked/ smelled awful. Our host informed us that almost any tourist who eats there.. doesn't feel... More

The best way to visit Brussels , is walking through the old center of the capital of Europe. This street, known for the typical tourist-restaurants, has to be on your traject when walking to the " grand place "

They will hold out a lunch time menu showing a 12 euro meal and once you've sat down they remove that menu and replace it with a much more expensive one, this is a con. They then tell you that the other menu was a much smaller portion just for lunch and that the dinner menu is larger portions. So... More

A beautiful, romantic street near the Galeries Saint-Hubert, to have a walk .I was eager to visit it and eat there as from many it’s called the stomach of Brussels. There are many restaurants on both sides of the road –a multicultural taste park-but unfortunately the food there, was boring ,typically tourist and overpriced!!

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
