The decor and beer are the best!

What a truly unique and fun place. The mussels were awesome, the beer was cold, and the decor was outstanding. The trek to the bathroom was like walking through a house of mirrors in a chandelier factory. Please don't miss this place!

I had quite a nice dinner here. I ordered the Rib Eye steak and it was cooked to my liking. The staff was attentive and helpful. The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice as well. The outside was quite crowded but the inside had lots of open space.

Delicious traditional Belgium food, the taste of the steak has this really particular flavor that makes u want to eat more and more.

We dropped in here for a late lunch and had a steak and a hamburger - both were well prepared. The service was good with very friendly staff which added to the experience. It is difficult to decide where to eat in central Brussels as most placed look the same (but the food is often terrible!). This is one place... More

Like entering a cave! Triple levels add to intrigue & experience. A little different from the myriad of eateries in nearby lane ways, much quiter and better food and service . Beefsteak and Lamb chops with Fries, delicious!

The furniture is really charming and we had high hopes for this place and its offer "9.50 euro for steak and fries". The result was quite different from our expectations. The steaks we ordered were overcooked, dry and chewy, pretty much the same results I had when as a young teenager I first started grilling meat. Fries were ok but... More

My boyfriend and I went here before seeing a comedian at the royal circus. It's easy to get to from the central station and you get to see the grand place on your way. We went here especially for the meat and were not disappointed. The waitress gave us a warm welcome and seated us near the window. The inside... More

We found Le Raphael on tripadvisor. It's a very small restaurant with just a few tables spread out over several floors. Quite an interesting setup. Sadly we were placed in a little corner which had very bad chairs. The other chairs and benches in the restaurant looked comfortable, so we were just a bit unlucky I guess. The service by... More

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.
