A very good eatery in an atmospheric arcade in the heart of Brussels. Quick, friendly service and I had an excellent lunch of salad and crevettes. A very family friendly atmosphere. I give it a thumbs up!

Great waffles, in a great setting. Can sit outside even when the weather is poor as it's in a gorgeous arcade (with many good chocolate shops). The waffles were light and fluffy, not the syrupy kind you see in the street vendors or chocolate shops. Downside is they were very busy and the seating was cramped outside. Service still quick...

Dropped in for a business coffee - nice vibe inside, but too noisy for a normal talk, so we've moved outside. Service was really slow. We've had coffee and tee, so I can't comment on the food (saw a lot of people taking orders and enjoying themselves). Nice central location though.

We arrived late after traveling all day and needed some food. The kitchen was closing but the waiter suggested we could have spaghetti Bolognese. It was delicious and the meat was of very high quality.

Located in the Galleries Royals St. Hubert mall area, this restaurant is a good lunch or snack spot; the people watching is good. I had the traditional shrimp stuffed tomato. I was expecting baby shrimp but these were a little unnerving at first... They look like shrimp larva! But the dish is served with fries and mayo.. How can it... More

Today I had a very bad experience a horrible one actually & for the 1st time in my life I face such situation. Today I decided to drink coffee & have a dessert there; the waiter was passing beside me so I called him to show me where I could have a seat. He ignored me completely and in a... More

Atmosphere is noisy because of the echo from the Galeries. Service is mediocre. Food is very average, without a wow factor. Mokafe has no personality. I came here after hearing so much about its "authentic" waffles. I wasn't impressed.
