This is the typical touristic street where the waitresses or hostesses try to get you inside the restaurant at any cost, so they just start shouting at you or walking next to you and that make your walking a bit difficult... Also we were told that it's quite expensive! Delirium and Janneken pis are close by to visit them❗️

It's a pedestrian street in the old section of Brussels, starting from from the Grétry street and going up cutting Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert in two. All the streets around Grand Place have the names of various guilds that had their markets there once upon a time. Rue des Bouchers (Street of the Butchers)despite its name is mostly dedicated to...

The food on the street in general is run in the mill unless you are willing to really pay out. Would recommend a walk down for the atmosphere if it weren't for the pestering men and women at the front of house. Its a numbers game, I felt, with both food and service showing it.

Sorry we walked through this place every restaurant we past they begged us to eat there. Went to Brueghel restaurant and got ripped off big style, it's a tourist trap, even the waiter in our hotel said the locals will not eat there and is run like Mafia style! Only interested in ripping tourist's!

Not the first time I get lost in Brussels before a concert and you need food. Too early for the best Resto there l'ogenblick so settle for a tourist trapper. Ordered onion soup. Can not be too difficult no? I think they either p in it or filled it with vinegar. Terrible. Never had any worse soup. Waiter offered alternative... More

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

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 "

I don't remember the name of the restaurant we were in and since we paid with cash, I don't have a credit card receipt to check. Since our hotel was nearby, we decided to eat here. Because it started to rain, we decided to go into a restaurant that was coaxed by staff member on the street. What appeared advertised... More
