This restaurant was recommended to be by a local, and I went back for the second time this week. It's small and quirky, with lovely, friendly service and interesting art works on the walls. Its burgers are outstanding - I had the Houtsiplou, which was delicious. Not necessarily the place for a romantic dinner for two, but great value and... More

We came here on our first night after being let down by another restaurant. There was a lovely atmosphere here and the decor is quite fun and unique. Staff were very friendly too. We both had burgers which were huge and cooked really well. The highlight was the fries though - if we weren't so full, we could have eaten... More

We were staying in the Sandton Pilows Hotel, right opposite. This seemed to be a very popular place, despite looking more of a younger persons bar cafe. Very good food - gourmet burgers, omelettes, steak etc. and very good value for money, around 35 euros for two, including drinks. (My wife says the omelette was super). The young staff are... More

At busy times this two floor - atmospheric restaurant can drive you mad - in a nice way though.....! Great food ( mostly ) served with a smile by enthusiastic staff but do check your bill ! Can be over or under ! If you are in a party or have extras it's best to check the detail. Lle bendigedig... More

Good atmosphere, reasonable food, but boy, what slow service. We enjoyed our meal - no doubt about it - but we were kept waiting ages between courses, to such an extent that we gave up on dessert or coffee, paid and left.

came across this quant little brasserie in Place Rouppe. Great atmosphere and artwork was certainly different. Food order came out promptly and was excellent. Good quality ingredients, price was fair. Large portions and polite staff.

the food there was excellent. Our hotel was very close to the restaurant so that was great for us. We had the croquettes aux crevettes grises, a Belgium dish. We really enjoyed it. A bit pricy compared to other local restaurants.

we already had a dinner in this hidden gem, opposite of Brussels 3-star restaurant "comme chez soi" . The interior is originally painted , and it has the most famous figurines of Belgium on its canvas. the food has Belgian/French specialities like "Americain préparé" ( raw minced meat with mayo, ketchup, raw egg, tabasco, Worcester sauce amongst others) that you...
