Myself and my partner got seated by waiter all seemed fine. Then we looked at the menu and made our choices. I eyed the waiter three times for his attention for him to look at me and walk past me before seeing to someone else each time! We got up and left without even ordering a drink!

I quite like the Trappiste but the food can be a bit hit and miss. Sometimes it's fine, other times, like this weekend, it's almost a chore to eat it. I ordered the vol au vent; there was plenty of chicken, unfortunately it was completely overwhelmed by the huge amount of sauce it was served with and even more unfortunately... More

Been here twice. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We had one of the best mussels and scampi. Also they provide a wide variety of Belgium beers. I totally recommend it and will return for sure when in Brussels again.

The place has an outstanding atmosphere and a good selection of Belgian beers. I enjoyed the place; young and old clientele, perfect noise level and a couple of trappiste beers in their unique glass.
