The second evening with my friend in Brussels we had had a long walk, I had a cold and we wanted dinner fast. I wish I would have checked TripAdvisor or Foursquare before ordering. My order was ok, but there was a problem with my friends’ order. The waitress reacted very rude. She took the plate... read more

I usually don't add my review to places that already have thousands of them. But I felt compelled to here because I just can't believe there are so many negative reviews. We went for dinner here and quite enjoyed it. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, and made several good suggestions about the food and wine choices. The food... More

We went here for breakfast and I ordered an omelette while my husband and two children had croissants. The croissants and drinks were served and consumed. It was at least half an hour later and after prompting that I was brought my omelette. We considered giving up but waited it out. There was no apology nor were there any smiles... More

We found this place while walking in the Grand Sablon area. The outdoor tables were nice on a sunny, warm day and the mussels were excellent. Leffe beer on tap was very good also! Friendly wait staff and mid range prices. $50 euro for a filling lunch for two with one beer and two waters.

The place is unfortunately as good as the leffe beers. First, not all the different leffe beers are available in the Bar (and the ones available are more expensive than any other place in Brussels). The place is tiny and you will fill squeezed in there. The waiter push the costumers to order something to eat as soon as they... More

We stopped here several times for a beer (Leffe Blonde is hard to beat.) and finally decided to eat, given their house specialties. The stew was terrific according to my partner, and my entrecôte was perfect. The waiter had advised on those, and I couldn't have been happier. The waiters are very busy, but good and considerate. If you sit... More
