I had ordered the rumsteak, which was amazing! It was cooked to perfection, and the grilled taste was exquisite, the pepper sauce and fries were also lovely. I would definitely visit again next time I'm in Brussels.

Despite many positive Tripadvisor reviews, Raphael Restaurant was a let down; location is the only positive. Starter arrived quickly; however, it was way too salty and inedible. My wife an I ordered salads for our main. They looked great, but looks can be deceiving. After one bite my wife and I discovered sand on the salad greens, implying the greens... More

The location is great, and we read great reviews on TripAdvisor so we stopped in on our last visit to Brussels. Our starters arrived quickly, but the calamari was extremely salty to the point that we did not finish it. The shrimp starter was not great, but fine. Then our salads arrived, and on the first bite I realized I... More

I was met at the door by Katie and believe you me there was no going back . Katie... More

Main course of chicken and lamb ok. Spoilt by very poor side salad - just lettuce with 1/6 of tomato, 1 slice of carrot and cucumber plus a fine slice of onion. Apple crumble appalling! Waitress apologetic and gave us free coffee. You can do a lot better within 100m.
