The food was tasty and nicely presented. The service was professional and friendly. It is small but nicely decorated. It is in a central location.

Went with a large group colleagues from an EU scientific programme meeting. We were sat upstairs which was ok for a large group but the downstairs area was nicer. We had made our choices in advance from a set menu and the food was very good and reasonably priced (30 euros for three courses including some wine/beer. My steak and... More

We found this restaurant after avoiding the more obvious tourist places in the centre of town. We only had mains and drinks and it came to 93 Euro for four of us which I thought wasn't too bad for a central location. I had a reasonably good moules and frites but my wife thought her cabbage curry (not something I... More

As restaurants around Grand Place go, this is relatively inexpensive but then the price reflects the incredible ordinariness of the food. Not bad, but not good either. And for true local flavor, the service is terrible -- waiting staff that would rather talk to each other than respond to customers, and the wine selection is the most unremarkable.

The menu of the restaurant looks nice and offers some refreshing options, with a vegetarian (not vegan) offering that surpasses the ubiquitous salads. The basic menu consisting of starter, mains and desert starts at 24 EUR, some options attract a supplement but the vegetarian menu was offered at this price. Unfortunately I found the food lacking in taste/quality. The starter... More

Wandering in search of a restaurant our last night in Brussels, away from the busy touristy places, we stumbled upon Abrussel. It was just a short walk from our hotel, the Marriott, central Brussels, as well as the Brussels City Museum. We had such a lovely evening. The waiter was attentive and so nice. The chef took time to provide... More

Stumbled upon this place whilst searching for a reasturant in the heart of tourist area. And what a find. Great staff, awesome food and nicely priced. Added this to my top 5 list and will take some beating

Both the setting and food were wonderful. We sat outside down the street from the Grand Place. Price was average for Brussels. Lots of couples having dinner and strolling by.

At last we can eat great Belgian food. Two steps from the Grand place, a nice little restaurant, not expensive with a good service and choice.
