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.

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.

A very typical French/Belgian brasserie. Not to everyone’s liking, but it is true to what it claims to be. The service is fabulous if you know how to engage a middle-aged French man waiting tables—try to have a bit of fun, speak some French or profess a desire to lean, and don’t expect to sit down, eat, and leave in...

Ate with work colleague and enjoyed moule with chips and a glass of lager. Rather hurried staff and tricky to get the bill however food was reasonable. 40euro for two so probabaly not bad for Eurocrats.
