Enjoy Brussels like the Emperor

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... read 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...

Good for taste Belgian food and see a beautiful landscape of Bruxelles. Carbonade and frites are really suggested. The service is a little bit formal but needed for a business lunch. Bill not expansive.

We really liked this place! Food was great, service too. Very stylish and different. The only negative remark is that it was really cold inside, not very comfortable. Will just have to bring a sweater the next time.

The restaurant is very stylish, it has a great view of brussels and the grand place. The food did not take very long to arrive, and was great. But there were some issues with the cooking of the beef but the steak tartare was great. The plates were well presented and the service was great. the dessert are very good... More
