Randomly came across this restaurant whilst searching for somewhere different to go on a Saturday night and being wine lovers 'Les Foudres' really appealed. Lovely setting next to all the wine casks, excellent service and a great value menu for 35 euros. The food was excellent and the wine list equally as impressive. Would definitely recommend to friends and go... More

Lovely restaurant with a nice garden for summer evenings outside dining. We had the market menu (3-course meal) and a nice fresh Loire wine with the meal. Everything was freshly prepared and good value for money. Staff is very friendly. If you want to sit in the garden on summer evenings, you must definitely reserve a table.

First time at this place: warm welcome in this very interesting building (cellar), 3 courses lunch at 20 (twenty) EUR pp where the food quality truly exceeds this value. Pomerol Hospitalet de Gazin 2007 was priced half as much as in other places I've been. "Almost" perfectly served, as in my opinion vino speciale = bicchiere speciale and this one... More

I was invited by some friends for a dinner during a business trip in Brussels. We arrived very early as everything was still locked (around 7.05 PM). It stayed quiet all evening (only 2 more tables of 2 arrived). The house aperitif was not that great but the remaining of the dinner was just great! Ris de veau as a... More

I fell in love with this place the moment I walked into its unique door! It has such positive energy. The dining cellar is very elegant in a simple way I have not experienced in Brussels before. The food is so yummy. The service very sincere and friendly, which for me is always a rarity in Brussels. The garden is... More

Original decoration. Good quality and proffessional service, Menu out of standards, it gives you the chance to taste other possibilities. The outdoor seating seems to be very nice in the summer. Overall, a place to come back.

We ate here after a recommendation from some friends. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is in an old wine cellar. The wine barrels are still there behind a glass wall. There is a massive garden which is lovely for having a meal in the summertime. The food was also exquisite, however there could be a little more choice in... More

If you are relaxed you will have a nice evening, if you are more in a hurry you may want to ask for faster service
