Good food served piping hot by a really lovely waitress who was very attentive. Meal of veg soup, chicken and apple pie was decent value without being extraordinary. The restaurant itself provided a very quaint background for our evening meal.

This place has great atmosphere, and reasonably priced food for Brussels City Center. I had lamb chops, husband had the mixed grill, and friends had mussels. Everything was great! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because service was slow, which is pretty common in Europe. But would recommend!

Good location, you can sit outside in the summer. I ate a good fillet on green pepper sauce with the traditional belgian fries. They cook a good belgian chocolat soufflè too. So.. I recommend!

Me and my boyfriend decided to have lunch at around 14pm (the restaurants usually close at 15pm) and we found a great special offer there: steak + fries + salad for 9.90 €. We asked a starter, drank beer, the steak was awesome and the total price was 35€. Charming with great food, I recommend.

We visited this restaurant by chance last year & it was our first choice on a recent return visit to Brussels. Four of us chose different meals & we were all very pleased with what we had. It is not fancy food but if you like well cooked tasty plates of food then you will be well pleased, especially with... More

We were sat downstairs by the bar which was cosy but meant we didn't get to explore upstairs until we had to use the toilets- at which stage you got a better feel for the quirkiness of the venue. Staff were very polite and food was served quickly and were large portions (ideal if you're very hungry after wandering around... More

We stumbled across this place looking for dinner around GrandPlace. The food is from a set menu of pubs around Brussels. The quality is reasonably good, the service is good, the staff speaks a little english so that is useful. Decent beer selection too. Overall we did not regret stopping here.

Raphael's (aka Brussels Grill downtown) is one of those quirky places that invites exploration. Cosy tables inhabit odd nooks and crannies - and there are a lot of nooks and crannies here, beginning on the main floor and going up the ramps (not stairs) to the 4th (5th?) floor washrooms. Service was very good, we had the lunch special -steak... More
