Very disappointing when isn't who do not speak French receive different service from those who do. When asked for the complementary entre served to everyone, waiter pretended not to understand. 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!

The bread on my hamburger had mold on it and I asked for a well done burger, but they served me an almost uncooked burger. The restrooms were also terrible and the cooks had horrible body odor. I would skip this restaurant, especially with the overpriced food.

This place is on the tourist drag and so get bombed on a sunny day with the seating outside. The burger meat itself is not bad but drowning in mayonnaise and with a really awful bun. In a country such as Belgium with a fantastic bread culture, serving this kind of rubbish is completely inexcusable. As others have said, the... More

Stopped by at the last day, right after the checkout. Surprised to get a very good burgers - regular and Salmon for both of us. The food was great, reasonable price and welcoming service although the waitress didn't understand English.

We had been to the Comics Cafe before and had had a nice meal, so went back on a sunny day and the place was very busy - the outside tables all taken and nearly full inside. This proved disastrous, as staff cannot cope with such a busy place - it took ages before they came to take our order,... More

Comics cafe was quite good, but we waited the food for about 15 minutes. We ordered roast chicken and a fish burger. The roast chicken was a bit rough though. When we went upstairs to the toilet, we saw 1-2 comic figure statues. They were pretty cool, though.
