Great steak

The filet was fabulous, perfectly prepared and the fries are delicious. The cheese croquettes are also tasty. My only complaint was the only wine you could get by the glass was the house wine. For the price the house red was adequate, I just wished for more options.

Stumbled across this gem whilst walking through Brussels on a weekend away. Such a surprise when walking inside as this is a most unusual design.The service was excellent and the food was unbelievably tasty. Quite good value and very friendly I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Very well priced restaurant in such a central area. The lunch deal for 9.90euros was pretty good with its medium doneness rump steak with sides of salad and fries. Do try it if you are in Brussels!

Booked this on line and were greeted very warmly at the entrance and shown to our table. The inside is spread over a number of floors which in itself made it a unique experience! The food was spot on and excellent value for money. Our party had a mix of chicken which was succulent, salmon and steak all served with... More

We had a really great dinner at Raphael's. The spareribs and fries were great. At the end we ordered a "Bruxelles Special-drink" and the very nice waitress Sonja made as an Amaretto-cocktail, which we loved. The location is very interesting too. Thanks for having us. N&S

Good price. Good food and good service. No complaints at all. Right near the main square(s). Very nice building with nice toilets and route to them. You can dine on 3 floors inside. The portions are large too.

Headed inside and upstairs during a rain shower to grab lunch. Ordered two beers and nicosia salad and goat cheese salad. Both salads were decent size, crisp and tasty. The restaurant was very busy. Service was decent.

Its very difficult to find good restaurants open on a Sunday evening in Brussles, we had read some good reviews on Trip Advisor about Raphael's and decided to give it a try. The restaurant is in the city centre just off Grand Place and looks very ordinary from the outside - photographs of the food at the font in typical... More

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.
