I've had the pleasure of discovering this little gem today. The service is very good, attentive, professional and with good knowledge of food and beverage. We've had the 3-course lunch which was beautifully presented with balanced and interesting flavours. The fish was cooked to perfection and presented with delicious condiments, all seasonal. Although it is a set menu, they will... More

The atmosphere is very nice in this restaurant and the service is good. You can look into the open kitchen and the food they prepare there is excellent. The food tastes good and looks nice. On the down side, it is to expensive for what they serve. Also, the basic menu will leave you wanting something else to eat afterwards.... More

Went for the dinner with the whole family. First, the service was impeccable. Something that a lot of nominally good restaurants in Brussles fail to provide unfortunately. Second the food was amongst the best that Brussels can offer at the moment. Third the quality price ratio is fair. Last but not least the absence of a menu card and dressing... More

We opted for the five course dinner and the food was lovely. The service was with a smile and the room is very atmospheric. The one slight downer was the relatively long wait between courses but this should not hold anyone back from visiting Cecila. Its costly but the quality warrants the price. One bottle of wine between four plus... More

Very fresh products, very creative ideas in a plate and very professional service. Menu is always a surprise which for me was a bit scary since I am a pescatarian, but the chef adapted and everything was delicious. Don't hesitate to go :-)

We came for dinner around eight and the restaurant was already almost full. A very friendly and multilingual waiter informed us that the restaurant specialises in sea food and their surprise menu changes weekly. We had three options to choose from: 3, 5 or 7 course meal. We opted for the 3-course set and were asked if there was something... More
