A great little restaurant

We found this little place whilst walking around the city and were impressed by the price fixe. We booked a table for that evening and had a wonderful meal. I had the steak and frites, which were served in their own little basket. It was a bit noisy at first due to a party sitting opposite but... read more

Booked this restaurant on the strength of other reviews. It is located just off the grand place and is small but nicely finished and feels quite intimate. I had cabbage ravioli followed by red mullet; the ravioli case was a little too hard and did not deliver on taste but the red mullet was Michelin star quality. My friend had... More

We arrived in Brussels on good Friday and we had booked a table in Abrussel in advance never having eaten there before. We had a look at the menu and booked the table through the restaurant website. We were very pleased with our choice as it was perfect for a quiet and relaxing meal. There was a nice choice of... More

I approached them at 6.30 to try and get a group of 10 in during the start of the holiday season. No problem if we were flexible and agreed to leave by 9 so we took it. We had a great meal, never felt rushed, when it got a bit close to deadline they pushed out some quick desserts and... More

The restaurant was recommended by my daughter and I must thanks her. We always try to find something simple, not too expensive. You can get a three course menu for only 26€, two course for 22€. We took the first. Some dishes are subject to a supplement up to 5€. The food was excellent, as starter I took the Chimay... More

Myself and my boyfriend went to Abrussel after finding it on trip adviser and what a find it was. The restaurant is small but full of character, the staff were attentive and friendly and the food was amazing. We both had the seafood gratin which was flavoursome and certainly not lacking in seafood. The main course and desserts were also... More

This TINY restaurant (we counted 19 seats), surrounded by louder touristy places off the grand square is very friendly and charming with excellent service, great value, and wonderful food. Our table gave us a good view of the kitchen and we watched much of our food being prepared. Drinks were modestly priced and poured just a few feet away from... More

We had a lovely meal here on Valentine's day with great service and a lovely atmosphere. We had one of their set menus including a special cocktail of the night, 2 glasses of wine each and 3 starters plus a delicious amuse bouche. It is a very small restaurant and the staff were very helpful with our lack of French,... More

Just visited them tonight. Booked via Trip Advisor and got a discount on the a la carte menu. Worth it. We arrived about 30 minutes earlier and they were expecting us. Very small on the ground floor but nice for atmosphere. I think it is bigger upstairs but we wanted to be where everyone is! We only had a main... More
