The Comics Cafe is an incredible 200 seats Brasserie-type restaurant where one can enjoy tasty Belgium and American Cuisine up to midnight. In a warm Comic-like atmosphere, you will discover the "COMICS Burger", the "CARBONNADE FLAMMANDE", the delicious strawberry Cheese cake and a lot more. Nice "Terrasse" on Grand Sablon, historic center of Brussel. Famous "TINTIN" statue at the entrance.

My experience is good!

Somewhat surprised by the poor recent reviews. I've regularly travel to Brussels and have been to the Comics Café four or five times and have never been disappointed. The service has always been fine, even when a large party were in. Of course they specialise in Burgers, and there are... read more

We were strolling about on a Saturday looking for somewhere to have lunch and were drawn to the restaurant by the name and decor: the place is decorated with comic illustrations which is fun.. We thought we would give it a go as it looked different. It's a bit cramped upstairs but the service was fine, the food came quickly... More

Dropped in for quick lunch purely by accident. Was not expecting much ,, seated quickly, served quickly and food turned up quickly. The menu has burgers only. I went for the Obama , husband had a chicken burger. Mine was amazing.. Overindulgent but wow was it good. Husband chicken pretty uninspiring in comparison. I would say at 20 euro that's... More

Came with 20 people. Sat at 3 tables. 2 tables were finished eating before the last got fed. Burgers were boring with supermarket buns. Overpriced. Who cares if they have some comics on the wall when food and service are so bad?

We were really looking forward to visit that place, as sounds different from other places in the area, (even though looks a bit pricey). We've tried to get in the place, on the upper floor, when a lady came and told us that the cafe is full, and only available for food orders. We didn't even have the chance to... More

We were really looking forward to this meal as our son is a Tintin fan. We waited for 20 mins for anyone to take our order, amd then after a further forty minutes only one meal of the four arrived. We had asked a couple of times what had happened to our food but no one had an explanation or... More

I went to the Comics Cafe for the first with a 30% discount which seemed to be a great deal " the best burger in town". Not only the place doesn't seem nice at all, it is greatly overpriced (9 to 18€ for a burger, fries NOT included). My main issue is not even the overpricing, it is the fact... More

This place was right next to my hotel and right up my street. If you love comics you'll love this place. Tintin canvases jostle with superhero prints for wall-space and there are comics everywhere. It's part library, with a little reading area where you can pick up anything from Asterix to the latest graphic novels, and part diner, serving a... More
