A group of 4 visited Les Brassins on a Monday night, it was absolutely pouring down outside. We found Les Brassins up a small side street near Louisa. We arrived at about 20:30 & had to wait for a table as the restaurant was full, however they let us have a drink whilst we waited & found us a table... More

Good local restaurant that not many tourists know about! My daughter lived in Brussels for almost 2 years and found this gem! It is small so reservations are a must to get a table. The Beef Carbonade is a good staple there, as well as the mussels when in season. Quaint and popular with the locals. Down the street is... More

Walked in following a friend's advice and found exactly what recommended: very nice and cozy atmosphere, great food, great beer and excellent friendly service. I chose my dinner from the daily specials (onion soup with toast and cheese + chicken breast with mozzarella with basil sauce and mashed potatoes with broccoli). I also enjoyed a bottled amber beer which was... More

Certainly not a fancy place, but serves good Belgian traditional favorites at a fair price. The refusal to take credit cards will be a disadvantage for tourists, which will likely mean that this place continues to draw primarily for habitues and the initiated Ixelles' patrons. Just down the street from the Audrey Hepburn birthplace.

When we asked our hotel receptionist (Made in Louise) to recommend a good local spot to eat mussels, she immediately mentioned the one favored by her mother (a very good cook): Les Brassins. We have not yet tasted her mother's cooking, but the this restaurant was spot on! Out of the beaten path and next to the place where Audrey... More

Food was great. I had the fish dish, and was satisfied. They also have a good beer selection. Only thing is that it can be a bit chaotic with the service as it seems to always be at its full capacity. I recommend booking in advance!

It's in a hidden street near to the underground station Port de Namur, very close to the house were Audrey Hepburn was born. Do not be scared in the evening by the darkness, because it's a quiet area. I visited this restaurant a few times for both lunch and dinner. I strongly suggest to reserve a table because it's always... More

Went here for lunch as soon as I arrived in Brussels because of the opinions read online and because it was not far from my hotel, and it was a really nice surprise. I had been warned that food in Belgium was not especially good, but I definitely cannot say so in this place. I got the day special (duck... More

Hearty food, and good value. Big plates, you will not walk away hungry, and the food is tasty (not particularly creative, but classic Belgian fare, great for meat-lovers). Good beer selection.

The slightly formulaic menu offers a range of hearty Belgian classics, accompanied by chips or stoemp (mashed potatoes and leeks) and a variety of sauces. It will please meat lovers with a large appetite but not those watching their cholesterol intake. There are a few lighter and more imaginative dishes available from the blackboard as daily specials. The atmosphere is... More
