You may laugh, but the first thing I remarked were the white and clean tablecloths. So we remained there and decided to serve our dinner. The service is incredible: they recommend you food, wine to accompany it, they even opened me the toilet door and when I came back they apologized for not doing it again. The food was perfect:...

I suspect this place succeeds from it's position within the Royal Galleries. Yes it's a beautiful building, yes it looks attractive as you walk past, and the food was tasty, but those are the only real positives. Surly waiter despite our attempted French. French only menu (perhaps him being encouraging) at first, but when proferred the English laminated card version... More

The restaurant (recommended in the Michelin guide) is no where near anything resembling a michelin star or stardust for that matter. Everything from the extremely over priced starter, which could have easily been made at home by anyone to the main course, which was... Well terrible and again super expensive compared to what you get, was just a bad experience.... More

This restaurant is located within one of Brussels' premier tourist areas. It is, for instance, not far from the Grand Place. Its interior reflects its history as one of the city's premier restaurants, and the waiting staff's uniforms are also traditional and give the impression of fine-dining. Unfortunately, our dining experience did not reflect that history or outward impression. We... More

This tavern, located in a very tourisy place, actually has quite good service, very clean, and decent food. We wanted mussels and fries and some Belgian beer so we stopped here. We ordered two different types of mussels and they were pretty good! Fries were good too. Its not too memorable since I can't remember what type of museums we... More

Located at the Gallery St. Hubert near the Grand Place this is a bistro type restaurant which is also one of the oldest in Brussels and one of the preferred places of older locals. There is a very big selection of tasteful Belgian specialties in healthy portions and excellent affordable wine card. In summer they put tables outside at the... More

Half way down the Gallery, tables outside carefully laid out, waiter immaculate, you think it will be a fine restaurant, but really its a good brasserie. Great location, and we sat outside in the July heatwave for 3 - 4 hours one evening. Ok food, good choice of French wine, attentive but not overbearing service (it is Belgium) and a... More

Good service and food. Visited twice on a recent business trip, once with colleagues and once with an old friend on the basis of the first visit, which I really enjoyed. Wine a little pricey but overall not bad value for a location in the lovely 'Galerie de la Reine'.
