Great food - ignore the decor.

We visited on a 'bad' night - the extreme heat caused the a/c to break and the lighting circuit broke too. DESPITE this we had top notch food. The staff were great and the pizza and calzone were truly tasty. So, so glad we went int!

Nice place, good service, reasonable prices. Rather exceptional for this area, where customers (tourists) rarely come again.

Had lunch here on our last day, the Gorgonzola and spicy salami, fantastic very tasty, reasonably priced! The other options of foods around us didn't look so great, definitely have a pizza! Sat outside in the beautiful sunshine!

A nice cosy restaurant that works for couples or larger groups. They do a good pizza. Given it is very close to Grand Place prices are reasonable. The service was really nice actually, which isn't always the case in Brussels.

just off the Grand Place. This is the second time I have used this with a party of 10+, but it is suitable for single travellers and couples. Large menu with something for all. Service very good. Steak and mushrooms were excellent.

We ended up eating here twice as the first time was so good. On each visit we tried pasta and pizza. Tasty food using fresh ingredients. Friendly service. Not far from Grand Place so nice and central.

Near the Grand Place. Good and cheap. For example la pizza quatro formaggio € 11,80. It's a good alternative for dinner or lunch may be.

We had a lovely lunch here. The food and service were both excellent. My pizza fruits de mer was packed with seafood and was delicious but very filling. The calamari starter we shared was also excellent. House dry white wine was better than many. We would certainly return.
