A great, vivid place for all ages and all times of day, hidden in the alleys of “centre ville”. Interesting delicious local dishes at reasonable prices. Nice friendly environment and equally nice service. A place that makes you feel relaxed and cozy while enjoying great food. Highly recommended!

Great authentic Belgian food. Menu is on the large chalkboard so slightly harder for the non-French/Dutch folks. All food was great, service was attentive, casual atmosphere with lots of conversation. Please know its cash only.

Fin de Siecle was recommended by our tour guide on a recent bicycle trip through Belgium. After reading the reviews here we decided to give it a try and we we not disappointed. The restaurant is a short walk from the Grand Place. There is indoor and outdoor seating though the outdoor is somewhat limited (5-6 tables). The staff was... More

This isn't the place for a romantic dinner; it's noisy and the environment is basic. That said, the food is very good and the prices are decent.

This is such a popular place people wait outside for tables. Limited outside seating which is like social seating, you will almost be dining with strangers on long benches. First time we visited we were very impressed but a week later one of our group did not receive his main course with the waiter saying it had been given to... More

There's so many restaurant in Brussels city centre but only a few serve real Belgian food. This is one of them. The food tasted home made, everything we had was tasty and pretty cheap: the portions are huge. The place is unique, seems it remained exactly as it was in la Belle Époque. I would definitely go back.

We were on a business trip stopping at the Marriot so just wanted a good eatery within walking distance after a disappointing meal in London the previous night. A quick trip advisor showed up the Fin de Siecle offering good belgian food. It was a bit difficult to track down as it's just off an intersection down a side street... More

Good typical Belgian food. And good quantity. If you don't want to wait a long time, go for the lunch after 02h30 PM.

The meat was really good. Good price quality rate! Try the Carbonade Flamande, it was one of the best dishes I had in Brussels.

This is Belgian food like they serve you at home in Belgium. I am originally from Belgium and these are the kind of meals that my mom would could when I still lived at home. It looks like an old fashioned restaurant but it has a great atmosphere. We went here with some friends of ours when visiting Brussels. One... More
