Underwhelmed

This restaurant is visually really nice with a really interesting modern look, slightly spoiled by a broken window above the entrance. I came as part of a large group so we were given a slightly limited menu so I can speak for the entirety of the choice available. To start I had the Tuna... read more

We saw this place in the New York Times 36 hours in Brussels and we're hoping for a pleasant afternoon lunch. When we arrived the wait staff ignored us and everyone else wait it also. The waitress was in a bad mood and throwing things behind the bar. The waiter told us there is no one here to serve you.... More

although the location and the food was very nice, for some reason the service wasn't. They didn't want to give us a table at the window so we could have a view even though there where 3 tables unoccupied, they messed up our orders 2 times but smiled even less.

Five centuries ago emperor Charles V had one of his palaces on this location. This is reflected in the name of the restaurant "Kwint" which is derived from the latin word Quintus, meaning: five. This "Kwint" is a very nice place offering the most beautiful panoramic sight on Brussels. The service is friendly, the food excellent and the prices are... More

The reception was warm and we felt immediately welcome. Extensive selection of aperitives and gin tonics in particular. Good food and excellent service by Humberto Coreia and his team. All of this in a pleasant setting with exceptional view on Brussels.

Kwint is located on the Kunstberg (Mont des Arts) surrounded by many cultural institutions, and also close to city centre. The food was very good (in particular the carpaccio). Service was not bad, but there was a reception at the same time and it seemed the staff were a bit overwhelmed and did not spend too much attention to other... More

The place clearly is quite attractive: stylish interior, great sight on the 'Kunstberg', impressive sculpture filling the room. Friendly and efficient service. Food rather disappointing: I had very simply prepared salmon, with one little piece of chicory, some potatoes and a unspecified sauce. As desert I had cheese, which was not properly ripened and coming straight out of the fridge.... More

We recently organized a dinner for an international group. The comments about the service and the food were “very good to excellent”. A few members of our group needed some dietary requirements and the KWINT staff organized special plates meeting the needs of our guests. I am sure that for another occasions we will come back to your restaurant and... More

Stylish-dessign place and convenient location. Food was OK for such a frame. There were some serious issues regarding the quality of service: we were one of three groups that virtually filled the place that evening; our group's menu and size had been pre-arranged, so it's to be assumed that the other two had been as well, which gave management the...
