The service was very, very bad. The problem was not the waiters - they were all working really hard and practically running in the restaurant. The problem is that there weren't enough of them, nor it seemed enough cooks in the kitchen, to handle so many people. The restaurant was packed - every table full and they couldn't keep up.... More

This place is very nice: good location and very nice interiors, very good quality of the food and also big portions. It is a bit pricey (aroudn 50 euros per person for three services and a glass of wine), but it is absolutely worth, especially for important events!

I read a few reviews and decided to go anyway since I had a friend visting from Spain and wanted to impress her with the decor. Frankly, I don't know how it got bad rap for the food; we had a great seafood dinner with excellent white wine. We ate a couple of delicious starters and the curry lobster, which... More

I was reading the previous reviews and i understand it would not appeal to everyone. We came here whilst on holidays and it was good to go out of tourist areas. the staff was nice enough not as warm as northern England but nice. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great (i guess being able to listen and... More

Second time I have visited this restaurant, and it does not disappoint. Four of us sat at at the top of the stairs behind the clock in a tiny little room with just one table in it, looking out over the restaurant - great fun! It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was hopping. Fish and seafood very good,... More

Couples get to sit at intimate little balcony tables next to the old tool boxes; food is locally-sourced and meticulously prepared. Very attentive service; no compromise despite the remarkable decor

I was in Brussels for a week and this was the best meal while we were there. You have to go if you like oysters and the desserts are wonderful so save room. Highly recommend the lobster soup too.

Brasserie La Quincaillerie is situated in an old hardware store in Ixelles and has kept most of the old wooden drawers in the cupboards along the walls. There is a huge cast iron clock on the wall and the restaurant boasts turned cast iron stairs. The atmosphere is very nice and the young and bright staff particularly helpful. Unfortunately, what...

My team of 11, from all over the globe, met last week in Brussels and for our dinner out went to La Quincaillerie upon recommendations from friends. I absolutely love the décor and look and feel but was astonished by the service. It took almost 30 minutes to take a drink order, then another 20 to bring any of the... More
