Large log cabin located in an island, in a park's pond, which results in a great setting. The park is beautiful as well. Food was good and service friendly, a bit slow though: the place was packed (guess it's usual). Walking around the park is also a great added value. We repeated the experience.

I visited this restaurant for the first time yesterday and it was a pleasant discovery for me. We were invited to a wedding that was organized in this restaurant. The location is a very pleasant surprise and we had a lovely time. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. I would definitely consider to go back with friends or... More

The setting could not be better, right in the middle of a pond. You can access only by boat. But the service was so unpleasant each time we visited that we changed our mind and did not stay for dinner so that I just have nothing really positive to tell about this place.

When I came to Brussels 20 years ago the restaurant at this location had just been destroyed in a fire, and it took like 15 years to have it rebuilt. To access it you embark on a 20 meter barge ride as the restaurant is on an island in the lake. Entering the place I liked the central bar area... More

Le Chalet Robinson is everything you could want on a quiet romantic evening. We went at dusk to the Chalet which is accessed by a quaint barge on a pulley of sorts (for €1). The fairy lights against the dark night really do give this place a wonderful atmosphere. We ate the truffle croquettes which were heaven. Only downside was... More

Delicious food but service should be improved - we were waiting for around 45 min to order a dish (after 3 reminders) and then 1 hour for a waiter who brought us the wrong meal. All in all, beautiful ambient to enjoy sunny day in Brussels!

We went on a Sunday when it was very busy. On boarding the ferry to cross to the island, the 'Captain' politely advised us that we might have to wait for a table but on arrival we were given one for 4+infant immediately. The waiter took our order within a few minutes and the food arrived shortly afterwards. The dishes... More

After many months of not coming here because of the bad service experience on pervious occasions I thought I'd give it another go. The setting of this place is amazing in the middle if an island in a lake within a huge park in brussels. The food is also good from past experience but the service has to be the... More

I come to Belgium for holidays about 2-3 times a year and I always come to this restaurant. I always have the same meal, meatballs and fries and it's so nice to enjoy with family on a nice sunny day outside on the terrace on a private island

The surprising thing is that this fantastic restaurant doesn't rate amongst the best Brussels restaurants among Tripadvisor reviewers. The location is absolutely charming, on a little island in the heart of the Bois de la Cambre, full of great ancient trees elegantly interspersed with wide areas of lawn. On a sunny day - or, one hears, in winter - it's... More
