Good restourant

Generally, it is an acceptable restaurant.. Even if it is located in the city centre, it was not as expensive as expected. The food is nice

The restaurant's building is very old. Instead of stairs, ramps are used to go up floors. This was the way to go up floors with horses years ago. Anyway, ambience is fantastic, decoration as well. Music in the background is peaceful. Service is very fast. Prices are moderate. Taste is good. Grills are said Belgium grills. I suggest this place... More

Found this little place by accident (was looking for the puppet theatre) checked trip advisor and thought 'steak' yummy. Staff were attentive, friendly .... The food was gorgeous. Steak and carbonnades flamondes... Both excellently cooked and very generous portions. Definitely recommend

This was our second time to Raphael, but this time there was something missing which made it different from our first visit there and the reason for returning. The service was okay and so was the food, but the atmosphere has changed. They did nothing wrong, but we will not return again in future, but everything was just okay, nothing... More

On our first night in Brussels we were after something nice and convenient. This fitted the bill. Service was good, and food very nice. Both of us had a a lovely steak. Only criticism was we left absolutely stuffed - practically had to roll us to the hotel!

I Was in Brussels for Business looking for a nice Place to eat a good steak. I've found this clean and elegant restaurant with friendly and efficient staff speaking french, english and italian. I had the filet steak served with sauce (separate), potatoes and salad. The filet was great quality and served quickly. I would love to come back.

We were tired after a lot of travelling and fell into this restaurant. I got the feeling it's a bit touristy like Aberdeen Angus Steak Houses in London. However, the building was quaint with tables on all different levels of the restaurant. Staff were friendly and efficient, speaking French and a bit of English. We had the fillet steak, greek...
