Enjoy typical Belgian food served in perfect brasserie style

The "garnaalkroketten" ou "croquettes de crevettes" (Belgian speciality with North sea schrimp) as a starter are a MUST.

This was an iconic styled French/Belgian style 1940's type restaurant. Well appointed and bustling with waiters and patrons. we were a small group efficiently shown to a table, great linen and silver service. Other groups had booked, and local businessmen appear to use this, always a good sign. We chose local beers and of course in this instance mussels. The... More

Avoid. I started with their speciality, " la Poutargue sur toast", apparently Bottarga (salted, cured fish roe) on toast which was tasteless and followed with a veal escalope, also totally tasteless, that had been beaten so thin a piece of newspaper would have been thicker! We were there Saturday 16 January 2016 for dinner around 8pm and arrived to what... More

Enjoyed a Sunday lunch here...all rooms filled with people clearly relaxed, enjoying the warm cosy ambience of a reliable quality capital city restaurant. Good food and gently paced service - eg rich sumptuous juniper sauce to accompany veal kidneys and plenty of frites. The wine list is extensive and the prices are good. A great place to meet eat and... More

We came to eat here with friends on Christmas Day in the evening and we had a lovely meal. My mussels were to die for and what a huge portion, I couldn't finish my fab fries as I was totally full with my molluscs, oh and the great bread they serve too! My husband and i shared the mushrooms on... More

Having dined here a few years ago and having had a good meal, I was expecting it to be good and was not disappointed. Good food and reasonable service at an affordable price, couldn't ask for much more.

Elegant brasserie and dining room in Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, inimitable and seemingly immutable, offering the best of Belgian and French cuisine. Beautiful art deco interior, elaborated food, and most certainly mussels in season.

Expensive, but with quality, though not fantastic. Easy to find a table for dinner as it is quite big

For you finns out there, this reminds me of Kosmos in Helsinki. For your others, it's tastily old fashioned place with decent food. Had the snails for starters, they usein pastis to that which it was not to my taste. My näin, rabbits saddle was to the spot. Excellent. Extra points for serving Le Colonel for dessert - that one...
