Great resto specialising in Belgian dishes especially good for the fresh fish. Can be difficult to get a table so needs booking in advance

Dinner for eight, no problem. Belgian cuisine at it's best and a good wine list to complement it. Lovely Art Noveau surroundings and warm friendly welcome and service. One of the best!

a traditional Belgian restaurant - with excellent service and probably one of the best steaks that I have had the pleasure to consume in Brussels! converted from a personal garage - the theme of cars is very prominent. both members of staff were exceptionally friendly, efficient & spoke in multiple languages. My husband had the sausages & stoemp and thoroughly... More

Good food, bad service. Unfriendly staff. The wine bottle was brought to the table already opened. We commented the fact between us, immediately the employee came to the table and in a threatening tone said that she understood Portuguese.......very unfriendly employee. Obviously no tip was left.....

Wonderful steaks; the best we had in Belgium. 3 or the 4 in our party had the chateaubriand. They each tried a different sauce; mushroom, Roquefort and tarragon. All were very good. This is a former garage that has been renovated in a very upscale style. We ate upstairs. The service was efficient and friendly.

We loved this place♡ Casual +fun...good food in a warm & friendly space. A little more attention to table presentation would certainly add to ambience. ..some finer touches in the dining areas would be lovely :) Fabulous area of Brussels...will return for sure!

A great place for a drink and a lively atmosphere, enjoy the excitement and sit at a community table if going at a busy time. Go at a quieter time (midweek, midday) and get a flight and enjoy the atmosphere of this 100 yr old pub.

Fun and unusual place with a relaxed, romantic atmosphere. The mussels with white wine and cream were good, though not the best I've had, and the beef carbonnade was a little heavy on the vinegar in my opinion, though the sauce worked well with their excellent chips. Worth a visit, though maybe not a long trip out of the way.
