Nice dinner in a warm terrace

We booked in advance cause we were 9 and they gave us a warm place in the terrace. All dishes at the table seemed delicious but I highly recommend saumon béa and magret, these dishes were really tasty. 25€ per person (including wine and beverages). Good value for money. Service was nice until the... read more

Make Gou a part of your day. We usually spend a little more than two hours at lunch while eating at Gou. My favorite place to sit is in the sunroom even on a cold rainy day. The food presentation is excellent and the flavors don’t disappoint. My favorite thing to order is their business lunch, which changes frequently. The... More

Poor standard of food at a high price. In leafy ex-pat Stockel area Woluwe St. Pierre. Informal but prosperous clientele. Scampi tomato stew-soup starter which which was hard to eat as they hadn't been properly shelled - no finger wipes provided. followed by an utterly tasteless filet steak served in two bits with greasy chips. My partner had smoked quail... More

The trendy decor and the sunny terrasse in the summer make the restaurant an enjoyable place for lunch. Good and tasty food, friendly service at a reasonable price.

I was invited there by a friend: really delicious foie gras , just sour enough , not too soft served with spicy salt, then a delicious pheasant with great cooked vegetables. Staff friendly and very polite. Good prices . I will return there

The friendly service and very good food are making the Gou our favorite place around Place Dumont. We highly recommend to try their Moules frites (not on the menu but always available during the season).

For a family celebration - 6 adults and 2 children- I booked this restaurant for dinner on a Saturday. The restaurant has three different areas, we were seated in the bar area, which was fine but is a passageway between the other two parts of the restaurant, so you may choose not to sit there. Service was a highlight, really... More

Gou has fast, friendly service and a nice menu with some "standard" Belgian items (steak/frites, fish) and a modern twist to the cooking and decor. I'm sure the locals will be aghast, but Gou reminds me of some of the trendy (but reliable) bistro's in the U.S...much more so than the typical restaurant in Brussels. In our party folks had...
