You can do much better in Brussels

One of the hazards of eating is Brussels is that there are so many tourists, so there are many tourist traps (places that sound good, but served average to below-average meals). Ok, so now you've had your fill of chocolate (check our Darcis ... so so good, even in a city full of good chocolate... read more

Our local guide recommended this restaurant. After we were seated, 2 very large tour groups arrived. Unfortunately the chef prepared our meal after theirs so we waited a very long time. Once we did get our meals, the mussels were great. It was just the long wait that was upsetting.

In this area of Brussels most restaurants can be considered tourist traps so I didn't expect too much. However, in contrast to the experience of some of the other customers, I found the place reasonable. The moules marinière were very good, the second time I went there I had duck which was average (but still OK). The service was good,... More

Food was good and prices high as everywhere here, atmosphere was like an ordinary restaurant, cold and not special, beers were too expensive, I liked canard. Unfortunately it is not recommended, I expected something better. Service was fast and kind anyway.

Good option close to the Grand Place. Doesn't have a grand opinion of itself and the interior is a bit non-descript - but pleasant and large, with lots of tables in two adjoining rooms, so it would be unusual not to secure a table.My Zeeland oysters were big and very good, and at €15 for 6, not expensive by Brussels...

When you go to Belgium you expect chocolate, beer, waffle, fries and mussels: the first four were true to form but the last one, at this establishment, was a big disappointment. Despite the reasonable price, the quality of the mussels and the service were below expectations. Don't be deceived by its location.

Great staff, great and simple food. Scallops my favourites. And reasonable prices 50 m from grand Place. One of those places I visit with pleasure every year when I am in Brussels.

I have been going to Brussels for years and this place is my favorite for mussels. It's just off the Grand Palace Square. The restaurant is rather large for Brussels but quite simple. The only reason I go here is to get my favorite - a bucket of mussels with fries and a serving of tasty bread for 21 euros.... More
