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 had the pleasure of spending 8 hours in Bruxelles (On a stopover from Berlin to Barcelona) on 25/08 and while walking around the town centre and avoiding the typical tourist traps offering frites and moules I came across Raphael Restaurant. 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.

The beers were cold and the food was nice. The service was very good too! The staff could explain what kind of beer or wine you might like.

Love the decor, not unreasonably priced for the central area, staff's English wasn't brilliant but they were incredibly pleasant and really helpful. Sadly they'd run out of Moules Mariniere! Steak, chips and salad, good portions, cooked as requested. Thanks You

Just behind Grand Place, this restaurant offers great food and great service without the high price tag. Waiter was very friendly, even taking some group photos for us...would definitely return.

It was just horrible and durty. The salad was not fresh with rotten tomatoes. We could just eat some grilled rabbit, at least it was safe to eat as it was cooked. The interior design is cute, but all smog of the kitchen goes up and there was no air conditioner, so better not to seat at the upper floors... More
