I guess I had some idea that it might be like this or even more French influenced but in this restaurant it's decidedly more Flemish. We liked it. My wife had some sort of stew and I had sausages on potatoes. They use various Belgian beers in the preparation so that adds another local element. We had a nice house... More

Eight of us when to Fin de Siecle for an early dinner on Saturday, and the experience couldn't have been better. Great food and great variety - and also great prices! The only downside is that you MUST arrive early to secure a table...

The food here was very good and the service very friendly. We had a party of 5 and ordered the Stoemp, spareribs, pasta, and some type of steak. The menu is on a blackboard, but the staff is more than happy to help you if you don't know what something is. I read the reviews before we left for Brussels... More

This was one of our favourite restaurants to go to when we lived in Brussels. It is located within walking distance from the Bourse. I really love the setting. The restaurant is typically Belgian (large front windows, made of dark wood, high ceilings). It serves typical Belgian dishes and is reasonably priced. Food is well presented and tasty! It is...

Quite a relaxed place that served great quality food. The staff were friendly. Good little find! Feels a little off the beaten track but worth coming to.

This informal brasserie is very crowded at certain times of the day but the food is worth the queue. If you like having your lunch at 1, it's agood and quiet time of the day. Food is freshly cooked and portions are generous and reasnably priced (e.g. A lovely salad with chevre chaud comes at about 13 euros). Interesting but... More

Great local food in the capital, right next to boeurs place, a must! The owner will tell you how many time to sit, fast service.

We had been told about this restaurant, but I was not at all enthusiastic about going because I wasn't sure I wanted to queue. However, having a young trendy couple visiting us, and there not being too long a queue when we arrived, queue we did. So you need to know: While queueing you need to read the blackboard and...

We went there with a couple of friends on a Wednesday evening. It was so crowded that I could not believe my eyes. Every single seat taken and huge crowd in the middle of the restaurant queueing for 30-45 min to get a table. There were more and more people coming in, it was loudly and not too comfortable but...

This restaurant was down the street from an apartment we rented in Brussels. The food was very good and the menu, local cuisine. We ate there a few times, selecting various entrees and drinks from a chalk board. (Take a photo for consideration at your table. as there are no printed menus.) Speaking of tables, they are often shared. Lines... More
