We had dinner here - the Stoemp (sausage, mashed potato with vegies mized through, covered in a delicious jus) and the Carbonnade (beef and beer stew, with broccoli and mash potato). Both were excellent, and washed down with a delicious beer from their good selection. We came on a Sunday night and had no problems getting a table for two... More

My last visit was in 2010 before I moved to Asia. Upon my return to Brussels last month, I was keen to get back to one of my staple restos to see if it was still as good...I wasn't disappointed! I had the Carbonnade and it was as good now as it was 5 years ago. The service is always... More

If you are in Brussels, passing by as tourist, or whether you live in the city... "Fin de Siecle" is a obligatory stop to live a truly trendy Belgian experience.

Of course the menus are in French. Stop moaning and learn some of the language. Any way you must come here, it is massively busy, but the food once ordered it will arrive very quickly. We had been previously informed the the service in Brussels can be a bit hit and miss, bare that in mind and you won't go... More

Following many reviews about this place, we went to try. They do not accept reservations, therefore you must go and hope to get quickly your seats. That's what fortunately happened to us this evening at 9.45 p.m. We got a table after less than 10 minutes wait, and the food within 15 minutes from ordering. We had the Stoamp soucisses... More

Excellent food, decent prices. The maitre isn't the kindest person, but he is effective. It gets crowded.

Have just got back from a lovely meal at 'Fin de Siècle'. It a was a wonderful experience. I read other reviews and it sounded like the perfect place. The menu was in French but the waitress explained what everything was as my French is not great. My wife had the chilli and I had the rabbit on the recommendation... More

Traditional Belgian restaurant with wooden tables, crowded in the evening (the staff seemed to be a bit stressed). There's no menu on the table, you can read it on posters on the wall (only in French, but the staff is willing to explain). Good food (not memorable, but good), average price.
