We stopped here on the recommendation of the hotel desk where we stayed across the street and Ended up eating here at least three times - a dinner, a sweet dessert with wine, another wine stop with people watching and breakfast. Diane (a friendly English speaking waitress with a beautiful smile and french accent) waited on us three times! She... More

Stopped there on a warm summer night. Lots of outdoor seating, funky indoor dining space (on 2 floors). A mix of tourists and locals. Had a tartine and liked it a lot. It was fresh and tasty. Good portion of fries. Would recommend.

After a bad experience the previous night (Le Plattesteen -absolutely avoid!), we were a little bit wary but needn't have worried. Very popular place, a good sign, but we were seated almost immediately. Service was quick and staff happy to answer any menu queries.Delicious looking burgers and a very tasty meatloaf, some interesting menu options for the more adventurous. Lovely... More

This was a really good spot for a nice outdoor dinner - the area is busy but not too crowded and the restaurant has lots of outdoor seating. We received great service and the food was delicious - the waitress was at first a bit confused by my husband asking for a burger without cheese, she said she needed to... More

We decided to pop in here for dinner as close to our hotel and our teenager fancied a burger (not macdonalds!). The place was busy, usually a good sign in my books and there were locals too, another plus. We ordered our meals then drinks and then waited....and waited....and waited. After watching three tables who had arrived at either the... More

Having come from America on two missed flights, we checked into a Brussels hotel and found this gem at the end of our street. We had delicious lamb with vegetables and potatoes that was superb and only 16Euros! My husband had a salmon with something else? That was also wonderful. Our daughter fell ill and they graciously packed this up... More

There's nothing wrong with Houtsiplou. Just visited the restaurant (I had a burger and my girlfriend had the daily fish which was salmon today). I tested the burger as many had said that they are great. Well it wasn't bad but best in Brussels - hard to believe that. The best was the places own lemonade (maybe little bit too... More
