I only could imagine a recently arrived tourist eating here. Someone with deep pockets willing to pay 50% or more for a normal service. Prices here are scandalous high. Burgers do not come with fries and you need to pay more for them. The prices of soft drinks are even higher than some fancy pants restaurants in Brussels. I have... More

The tag line is best burger in Brussels, and that is quite possibly correct. The burgers were thick and juicy and cooked just right. A nice setting full of comic memorabilia with friendly staff. Could be seen as a bit on the pricey side which is the only drawback.

We had a pitstop here on our walk around the Sablon area. Really nice tribute to Tintin, and you can read any of the comics that they have in their collection. The house wine is great. Service is a little slow though...

And too expensive for the quality. I cannot suggest it. We waited for two hamburgers and 1 fried potatoes 1 hour . OK the hamburger is good and chips too, but it doesn't deserve 40 euros (including two coke) for them.

This was a great find. Not cheap but that is the only disadvantage. The steak was well done (no pink in the middle) yet not burnt on the outside and was so tender it did not need a steak knife. big fries portions, great beers and service that is friendly, if a little slow. Recommended.

Honest food, friendly staff, interesting location, but quote expensive. Six euro for a chips? Premium prices for (any) drinks?

French fries were additionally added to the bill without asking if I needed them and more over they were in the menue withy the dish ordered. Disappointing treatment of a... More

This is a very good place to have a light lunch when visiting Place du Grand Sablon. We ordered 2 American style burgers, portions were very good and taste good too. Nothing with a woow factor but its not expensive either. The place is decorated with comics related items. We had a young guy serving us, what bothered me was... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. I have to say it was just OK. Our food was actually pretty good...good basic cheeseburgers and the sausage dish was yummy. However, as others have said, the prices are quite ridiculous and I did not appreciate the waitress having her thong hang out of the back of her jeans...tacky... More

I simply say that asking 25 euros for an hamburger is insane... and at the end the decoration of the place is not even so special... to avoid at all costs!
