during our short stay in BXL we went there twice. The food was so good and service so great we had to come back a second time. For a dinner with desserts and a bottle of wine 70€, great value for money! We'll definitely go back to see Francois, the best waiter ever!

The manager Francois a charismatic and loving person, whose goal is to make sure you have a wonderful experience. 10 out of 10 for sure! I had a perfectly grilled steak and my girlfriend really...

After reading through TripAdvisor my girlfriend and I decided to visit this cosy restaurant. It didn't disappoint. Absolutely fantastic... Great service, superb ambience and excellent food as well as being reasonably good value. Would recommend to anyone.

I visit Publico regularly with friends and family and it's an excellent place to chill out and enjoy very nice food. You can try the typical Belgian dishes (delicious stoofvlees and vol au vent!) but also very nice meet, duck, tuna, salmon, pasta...you name it. They have a perfect choice for everyone. The ambiance is superbe, so friendly and warm.... More

Publico is the one restaurant you should go to if you only have one night in Brussels. It's a cozy place, that feels very comfortable and nice to spend some time in. The food is absolutely delicious, and even though it's not too cheap (mains between €13 and €20) it's definitely worth it price. The service is very friendly &... More

Followed the suggestion of our hotel staff and had dinner with a group of 6. The host was great and very accommodating. Sitting upstairs is a little tight for a large group and can be quite loud. Would sit on the main floor next time. Nice local dishes with an Italian twist. Not filled with tourists- seems to be a... More

It's one of those places, that look like many others but it's definietly worth it to give it a try. The food is delicious (I can truly recommend their tuna steak), and the service is rather good (waitress forgot to order my boyfriend's main course, but it was ready in less than 10 min so it's ok). So if you... More

Excellent service. The food is really good too. You can go there in the evening for a friends/couple dinner or for a business lunch, there's always something good. Very friendly staff!

I've been to Publico couple of times in last 4 months and I was always very satisfied. The food is great (try ravioli publico!), prices are resonable and the most important thing - the staff is super friendly!!! I always feel great in Publico!
