Wonderful meal

We ate a delicious lunch of lobster risotto and mixed seafood for our last meal in Europe. The neighborhood is fascinating and a great place to people watch. Lovely waitstaff -- but why oh why does it take forever to get the check and pay in Europe??!!

For the medium-high end of the market Royal wants to be, some improvements could help its attractiveness. Sitting could be less cramped (bigger tables or more space between them). The menu could be shorter: the current sub-division between traditional Belgian fare and fusion or fresh fish gives too many options, and tends to make you feel cheap in case you... More

We came in at 7:25 and had to wait for 20 minutes before they waited on us (the restaurant was still empty, but there were quite some people eating on the terrace). For drinks, we ordered an orange juice, half a bottle of still water and half a bottle of red wine. The starter was very good (variety of 3... More

We had reservations for two at 8 pm on Sunday, 26 April. We had fun with our waitress, Betty, who tolerated our many questions concerning the menu that was written mostly in French. We ordered two Mesclun salads, Belgium beef stew with mashed potatoes and a tenderloin steak with peppercorn sauce and fries. The stew consisted of many large chunks... More

The worst restaurant experience in Brussels. We booked a table, we have been asked to wait at the bar, they gave tables to people that did not reserve the table. I asked why, and the people working there answered bitterly that everybody can make mistakes. After more than 30 minutes, I asked when the table would have been ready, and... More

Very friendly staff, we was served by the owner, a really nice guy with a lot of experience in horeca, a 68 years old men that looks 50. The beef tartar was AMAZING, among the beef teriaki and the sirloin steak. The dish name is three kind of beef and for 21 euro i can say that is the most... More

We found the greatest atmosphere in the neighbourhood, savoury dishes and a great host, thanks to Emile and David. It's the place to be when you are close to St. Katherine.

A friend that lives in Brussels recommended this restaurant and he was right! We had a lovely meal, fantastic value for money. We tried the Carbonnades with beer sauce and the Chicken vol-au-vent, both of them fantastic. The portions are great, but make sure to save some room for dessert - the White chocolate mousse is a must.

Delicious Food, so helpful staff. We enjoyed a late lunch to keep us going through the whole day, it did not disappoint. We ate local with our mains Beef Bouginion and Beef meatballs both prepared in local beer, with 2 different sauces, lots of fresh bread and frites. Washed down with some house wine. Argentina and extremely good. We shared... More

We visited this restaurant while in Brussels and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The staff (maybe proprietors?) were delightful. We started with a entree of 4 samples. I had a lovely beef Teriyaki and we shared a wonderful Rioja with our
