I only had a delicious croque Monsieur, but I am convinced that all the traditional dishes where just as delicious

Even if it's in a highly commercial area the restaurant seems as if it's coming out from another era. The clientele looks very local, and that is certainly a good sign.

Few years ago I did note the impoliteness of waiters....I have them a chance yesterday and...they did confirm they behaviour, therefore: never again!Their arrogance is probably due to the fact that many tourists stop by, therefore they are not really interested in returning customers. In any case, they need good manners training!

Had fried red mullet. Really creamy and tender. The waiter served me was nice : ) I asked the staff in the hotel I stayed for recommendations for local food and she suggested this restaurant. It was quite local. Atmosphere definitely didn't feel like tourist-y.

I went for a "steak tartare" (ask to prepare it yourself) with french fries in this typical old fashioned Brussels style brasserie. Older waiters (not always 100% attentive ;-)), but a good meal. Café Liegeois for desert (yummie !) . Avoid the house red as it is not the best quality ...

Daniel, our waiter, did an exceptional job in making recommendations for our dinner. We had the chicken with tarragon, and cod. Both were terrific. We made reservations for the next night while still finishing our meal. Great food, great service, and great experience

Bistro restaurant, extensive menu, well prepared Belgian cuisine. Fabulous beer choices. Taken there by a Belgian friend for the authenticity of the Belgian food. Would be happy to visit again.

A great, traditional Belgian brasserie serving good food and traditional beers. Highly recommend the prawn starters and the Jambonneau.

Great Frites and beer. Old school waiters who seem a bit stern but are really excellent at their job.

I just came for a good Belgian beer and I still received the best service from a gentleman. The atmosphere is really nice and authentic. Although it was late in the evening guests kept comimg bogholder toeat and drink.

Even though located on a busy tourist street (Waterloo) The Trappist maintains the comfortable ambiance of a neighborhood bistro. Most of the tables are occupied by resident Belgians, and the menu is sprinkled with local specialties,,,mussels, vol de vent, meat balls, etc. Excellent beer menu as well.
