This was my second michelin star restaurant on this trip to Brussels and it was an experience not to be forgotten. First off, the restaurant is small and very intimate, and the decor, dishes etc. were amazingly beautiful. The meal I had there was the longest meal I have ever had! I had a reservation for 7:30pm and left the... More

Stressful service with continuous pressing to order water, aperitifs and drinks. Simple room, few tables, not very comfy chairs. Two degustation appetizers come in the beginning: tuna pieces marinated in soya sauce with sesame and wasabi and a beef tartar with a delicate salad and a lime froth. Both left you crying for some more flavor and taste although the... More

So, I came back to Alexandre after 14 months (I actually counted the months). First time I was there I had a lunch and I admit I was impressed. Second time howeverI was AMAZED. I took the Creative Degustation Menu and frankly I can say money can't buy such experience (well worth the 130 eur though). Now I admit I... More

I went to the restaurant Alexandre in Brussels during the week of June 16-20. I had great expectations as the restaurant is listed as having one star michelin and I had read good reviews. I reserved nearly three weeks in advance. I am sorry to say that the food was dissapointing.It tried to be very innovative but there was no... More

Well worth its Michelin star. Likely it will be an expensive meal, but well worth that money. The dining space is small - but I didn't find it crowded. Worth while booking. Very attentive and friendly staff. Care is indeed taken to talk you through your dishes to explain the tastes and ingredients. The sommelier was excellent - with two... More

A friend suggested I should try Alexandre, and I am so glad I did. Just the Grand Lunch plus a dessert, for 82 euro with a glass of wine Everything was delicious and bursting with flavour. The main course was meat, but a mystery as it sounded like they were serving Puma in a Spanish style. I suspect it was... More

Had dinner at Alexandra 4 weeks ago. I have to say the food was good although the service was slow. The layout of the restaurant is very poor. I was expecting a bit more from a Michelin star restaurant. Unisex toilet where the men’s urinal opposite the cubical – very poor decoration – tables so close to each other that... More

A very small restaurant with few tables which makes it very cosy with a personalised service. Do call well in advance to make a reservation, but it’s certainly worth waiting for. The food was great: from amuse bouches to dessert - a culinary discovery. Fresh food, nicely presented. Certainly worth its Michelin Star! Also the chef is very friendly and... More
