This is a beautiful cafe, part of the hotel Metropole, located in the place de Brouckere in the very heart of the city. It has an art-deco inside seating area, as well as a beautiful outside patio, very good to take a coffee watching the people passing. Service, however, is very slow and it needs improvement.

This is a stunning and beautiful cafe attached to the Hotel Metropole. Tables and heaters are located outside should you prefer being outdoors. The cafe is ornate in golds and coppers all over the walls and ceiling. Art novueau design, mirrors and sparkly chandeliers enhance its elegance. This is a great place to meet with friends or have romance. Everything... More

We came across the café / bar on our last evening in Brussels and had already planned to eat elsewhere we did however have a beer here. The interior is gorgeous and is like stepping back in time. We were disappointed we hadn't found it earlier and would have loved to try lunch or dinner - perhaps another time.

We looked for a late, light supper in an area that didn't appear to have many possibilities. This place was perfect for our needs. My husband ordered the paté with a glass of red wine. I had a French vodka with a generous plate of smoked salmon. The salmon was superb. The paté was fairly coarse and mild in flavor.... More

Typical old fashioned brasserie. Very stylish. The food and drinks are excellent. The service however is very slow and chaotic, but also very friendly. It is not the cheapest place. But sometimes one has to step over this.

Nice restaurant in a great old hotel in city center. The hotel is one of the oldest in Europe and exudes charm from yesterday. The menu reflects that.

At first you think it is touristy but as the charm grows on you, the realization is that locals would come here, the waiters know their menu and about brussels and the food is very good as well. The beer selection is also good. I would recommend this place, especially to try some traditional Brussels food and to see some... More
