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

I really don't know why you have to visit this Comics Café. The food it too expensive and you only get a hamburger. The cheapest hamburger is €9. For the French fries (almost invisible) you pay €6 extra. I visit lots of restaurants and it was long time ago I had a disappointed meal like this. The hamburger was ok,... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner as it looked quiet, welcoming and not at all busy. A man at the entrance told us to go upstairs so we found a table and waited. 15 minutes later I went to find my own menus, 10 minutes after that I went to drag someone over to take our order. The waiter was... More

Nice restaurant in a comics spirit. You can read comics while eating. The food is good and they make really nice hamburgers even vegetarian. Fries are excellent and staff is nice. They also have a nice organic beer that you may taste!

Try their special everyday hamburger! With FRITES. Great meat! Take your time. We sat on the terrace and enjoyed watching everyone go by. Everyone seems to enjoy watching others go by. Make sure you order everything in one go. Waiters are usually busy.

I had an excellent 'naked' cheeseburger here (no bun) with Belgian frites which were out of this world. Pricey at €25 for a burger, frites, drink and coffee but worth it for the location in the Sablon area which I personally prefer over the overcrowded Grand Place. It was delightful to be able to sit outside in the unusually warm... More

Whenever I´m in Brussels I make it a point to have dinner at the Comics Cafe. They have excellent hamburgers and it´s in a really nice area of the city. The staff are all very pleasant. If you want a great burger when in Brussels, definitely come to the Comics Cafe.

This is a burgers and bagels place. Fine burgers (beef, chicken, fish) served with really excellent fries, coleslaw and salad (with a surprisingly nice vinaigrette). We took the beef and chicken burgers, with the additional slaw, salad and fries (you have to order them separately). We both really enjoyed it, helped by pleasant service. But the price! My cheese burger... More

The place is really nice. I love all the comics stuff on the walls, and the atmosphere. But food is expensive (a normal hamburger is 9€ and it's without fries on the side!), and the meat is not that good. My friend took the chicken burger, and the meat was reeally dry. And the water is too expensive too.
