We just had a light lunch of a warm goat cheese salad and the smoked salmon plate, as well as a couple of beers. The service was just average, but the food was better than we expected based upon the reviews. Of course, the beer was excellent. It may have been a bit overpriced, but it was a good experience...

We just went for the beer and thoroughly enjoyed it after a long walk in the capital. Nice interiors!

In spite of all these bad reviews, we had a nice experience. Everything we ordered was good. Yes, it's not that cheap, but not that expensive either, compared with all the other restaurants in Brussels.

Not the best intro I know but I am torn between poor and average. It is overpriced but I have found service to be standard for restaurants in Belgium. That is to say not great but not horrible. The food is quite nice and portions are large, particularly the Vol au vent and the Moules Frites. They were fine with... More

Caffe Leffe looks great from the outside and inside is quite nice. However, it's overpriced, customer service sucks (as one of the reviews highlighted the attitude of the man who served us could be described like 'I'd rather die than serve you')as well as wifi does not work. Highly disappointed.

My partner and I stopped there for a quick lunch on a Sunday. The first impression was that no one was running the service. very male staff seemed to think they were and had a very different opinion from each other on how to do it while poor waitresses were made to run around like headless chickens. They were only... More

Unfortunately we stopped here for lunch. The food is not bad, but anyway pretty expensive for what you get. 13 Euros for two little pieces (2cm x 2 cm) of fried cheese, and when you go to the toilet you have to pay 30 cents... Bruxelles is much better than this!
