Nice decor in the bar/restaurant, close to the Basilique

A very nice atmosphere will await you in this classic that has been around for about four decades now. The bar and the restaurant offer good value for money. I cannot comment on the rooms though, not having stayed overnight.

Came here for a small meeting with a business partner, who picked this place. Had a "hot chocolate", which was lukewarm at best. The taste was comparable to the powder one can buy in a supermarket, mixed with water. In a long-standing Brasserie, I believe it's legitimate to expect something much better. Very disappointing experience.

Good choice of brasserie dishes! Quality follows and service is really efficient and respectful to the customers. A nice and convenient place to have an enjoyable lunch, business or between friends. Try the house wine, you will not be disappointed.

We had been visiting the Koekelberg Basilica and chanced upon this place. They say they're open from 7 in the morning until 2 in the morning, but when we had lunch the average age of the clients must have been in the 60's, presumbably at night the age drops. The restaurant is one of those classic places that the locals... More

Hi, me and my husband stayed in this hotel for couple nights during our visit in Brussels. I must say I was pleasantly surprized with a hotel I booked. The room wasn't big though but it was clean, warm,no bad smell or anything. The bathroom was nice with a shower. The location was perfect: few min from metro. The food... More

I have been to this place with a girlfriend some days ago to eat some crepes. This pub has also a kitchen because in the upper floor there is an hotel and so they provide the breakfast for the hotel. The environment is quite mixed there are a lot of different people I noticed there (students, workers, etc.). The crepes... More
