Absolutely worth visiting, good food and good prices

Our son brought us here. We didn´t expect anything special but this restaurant was surprisingly good. Now I understand why he eats here regularly. The food was good, especially desserts were fantastic. And prices were the lowest we saw in Brussels.

On arrival this was not as I expected. It is small with ordinary wooden floor, more café type, staff are dressed quite informal. I was also told it was a Jazz Restaurant, no idea why! Food was good, not fantastic but I think it is dependant on your order, my husband enjoyed steak, staff were extremely good when he decided... More

My favorite place for traditional Belgian food and beers in the most relaxed, casual atmosphere. Go! They only take cash.

We visited this restaurant as it was recommended by our helpful hotel receptionist. She booked a table for us and we arrived earlier than our booking. We were seated straight away and within about 20 minutes, the restaurant was packed. The food is typically Belgium and was very reasonably priced. Virtually everybody in the restaurant were locals which is always... More

I was looking for somewhere that we can eat pancakes ( it was a pancake day lol) with my 6 years old daughter so we find les brassins :) We enjoyed the indoor seating. The pancakes (Dutch-not US pancakes) are like crepes and delicious. They also have huge range of beers as well :) We can recommend this place for... More

It seems like the chef has changed here... Been bere few months back and loved everything but now went with friends and most of us hated the food Shrimp in garlic and onion soup are fine but the carbonade was way to sweet and just off You are in Belgium so things that are typically Belgian should be up to...

Going here often, I was not at all surprised by the superb dinner I had yesterday! The boeuf simple face is always garantee of great beef in its own special way - the meat is cooked only on one side and the other is marinated with mustard, onions and persil - savoury and original. The beer list is an amazing... More

I've been in this restaurant (estaminet) several times and it always satisfied my expectations. The restaurant is small, simple but cozy. In my opinion the carbonnade and stoemp are "superbe". I tried also sausages, hamburger, tuna, tarte tatin, tiramisù (with speculoos)...everything good as well. The beer list also needs a mention. Prices are absolutely good... (cards are not accepted, only... More
