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.

Very good burgers and friendly service

We went here early evening and had a great meal. I had the bacon cheeseburger, my boyfriend the bacon bagle. The burger really was the best one i ever had. My boyfriend liked his bagle but didnt love it. Its a bit pricey but id go there again to try another burger! As others have said, burgers and... read more

This is a fun cafe, decorated with Tintin posters, some signed by Herge himself. There is also a life sized bronze statue of Tintin upstairs which is great for photos. The food was very tasty and reasonable priced. I would definitely return, given the opportunity.

We are a family of 5 adults and 3kids whom chanced upon this cafe while sightseeing in the area. We were one of the first customers at 12pm so the friendly waitress brought my son around the whole cafe for a visit. We ordered 5 main courses ( beef stew which was yummy, caesar salad which was too dry, croquette... More

Perfectly located in an area full of posh restaurants and chocolate shops - an actual taste if Brussels pop-culture :-) The restaurant is built into a set if old buildings connected through walls, with different floor and ceiling levels, one of them a former gothic (?) chappel... You get an unique blend of styles and tastes with the stone and... More

Claim to have the best burgers in town but not bothered to serve me mid evening. So went to skievelat as long restaurant down the road that probably had the second best burgers in Brussels.

Many comics memorabilia including statues, although the meals didn't have comic themes they were still tasty, prices are similar to other places in Belgium.

We stopped here for lunch while in Grand Sablon and wasn't disappointed. We had the chicken burger - very good - and the salad - also very good. The decor was cool especially if you are into Tin Tin! Stop by you won't go wrong.

Relaxed atmosphere- menu written on chalkboard, can grab a few comocs to read. Nice food - all the basics are there. Some surprisingly good fare- pizzas are great, I love the Dutch croquettens. The service is pleasant and fast. Great for a lazy brunch.

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 alternatives but the rest of the menu is rather limited.... 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
