Neat and unassuming restaurant with good food and friendly service

I had an unusual starter - sort of lightly poached egg in a creamy mushroom soup with entrecôte as main course. I asked for 'bleu' and it was prepared perfectly. The food is not too fancy but well presented and the service very friendly and attentive. I had arrived late in the evening and ended up... read more

A friend took me to L'ivre.. yesterday night and the experience was good, but not fantastic. They have ambitions for the food, but it does not go all the way. I'm well aware that competition in BXL is fierce and that the general quality is good compared to other cities of the same size. However, I think that in this... More

We've been going to this restaurant a few times before and always enjoyed it: great food and great service, price a bit above average but not excessive so good value for money. Our last trial was less successful. Service was extremely friendly - readily accommodating a few special wishes - but we did find wait time above normal. Alas, the... More

I have been going to this restaurant for several years now and always enjoyed it for its good food, in particular its "boeuf marbré de foie gras". So I was a little apprehensive to return there since I had learned of the change of ownership which is announced on their website. My favourite dish was still on the website but... More

We - party of five - arrived as the first guests and received excellent service from beginning to end. Great, varied menu. In addition they readily offered to cook something special for our two year old son. Meals were great and restaurant was charming. Will be back.

This restaurant was in the list of restos recommended by friends so off we went last night to try it. But before making the reservation, I checked reviews from different sites and so far, all the reviews were very encouraging. And lo & behold, there was a lot of truth in what people say about this resto's quality in both... More

L'Ivre de cuisine provides you with quality seasonal products in a classic way. You have to choose between a few meals on a blackboard changing with the fresh market. The codfish was excellent as the sauce and the vegetables, it was a warm summer day and the terrace is a real plus, located under the trees of a quiet street... More

The place is nice , a small restaurant with a few tables . In terms of service , a nice and efficient young lady runs all over the place to serve some more than 20 clients. She is obviously overworked . The restaurant offers a menu with 5 or six starters and five or six entrees . They look original... More

Very pleasant ambiance and decor in a side street of a pleasant residential area. The waitress was attractive and efficient. First courses of lobster ravioli and beef carpaccio with salad, both excellent. Main course of sweetbreads, a delicacy I have encountered too infrequently in recent years. Altogether an excellent experience
