Great food and beer.

Had a fun time at this restaurant. Very busy and great value for money. Be prepared to line up on a busy night to wait for a table (we waiting about 20-30 min) but great atmosphere and generous servings. A good beer selection. Service was reasonable considering how busy the place was. Nice to see a... read more

This is one of the ideal choices for dinner in the center of Brussels. Even though it is crowded most if the day, the staff will try tofind a table for you as soon as they can. In the meantime you can drink a beer on the bar. The spaciality is the sausages with mashed potatoes but most of the... More

Good old fashioned grub in a typically Belgian ambiance. Take Cash and be ready to wait 5-15 minutes for a seat. I have been here many times and never disappointed. Some of dishes are pretty hearty so go hungry; the Jambonneau (ham hock) is my favorite.

Fin de Siecle was a good food experience in Brussels. I would certainly go here again, but remember to bring cash, as they do not accept credit cards. Except from that, the food could have bit more sting to it, but nevertheless, it is very good.

Great Belgian food and super friendly staff. The decoration is quit plain but the food totally worth it. You will have to wait to find a table especially at pick hours.

I tried to eat here last Saturday evening but the queue was already out on the street and we were told it would take at least an hour to get a table and so we changed destination. However on Sunday we were in the area at lunchtime and so we passed by to take a look (as we had read... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the tour guide we had for our Sandemans free walking tour of Brussels (also highly recommended!). And what a fantastic surprise it was. The seating arrangements are very relaxed, with tables often joined together. The menu is written on the wall only. Food is traditional & modern Belgian food. We had lamb, pork,... More

We went to this restaurant because a friend told us to do it. The result wouldn't be better. An incredible quality food, really pleasent staff and nice and comfortable atmosphere. Highly recommended. And last but not least, I have paid doublehere in other restaurant for less than half quality I got here.
