Recommended restaurant for their delicious mussels! Service was slow but friendly. It was brightly lit, not my favorite, but nice for a casual dinner.

This Belgian restaurant is located at "Galerie St. Hubert", a famous glazed shopping arcade in Brussels. This restaurant have good atmosphere, nice dishes and also their services are fine. アーケードの「ギャルリーサンチュベール」の中ほどにあるお店で、落ち着いたいい雰囲気です。家族で行きましたが、子供用メニュー(牛ステーキか鶏かサーモン)もありました。ベルギーのレストランにしては出てくるのが早かったです。舌平目のムニエルは、身が厚くいい材料を使っていておいしかったです。客層は、ベルギー人の年配の方が多かったです。

We were looking forward to having lunch at this Brussels classic but found it disappointing: dismissive service, mediocre food, and way too expensive for what we were served. Would not recommend.

I'm a Belgian living overseas and used to visit this restaurant almost religiously on each visit but NO more. The service received was terribly rude to the point that I had to leave the restaurant with my entire family. We endured up going to 'Les armes de Bruxelles' just a few steps away where we received first class service, the... More

Located in the marvellous 19th century Galerie de la Reine, this restaurant is one of the top favourites of both local people and tourists. We very much enjoyed their 'sole meunière' and 'steak tartare' and above all the friendly ambiance of the place. Do book your table in advance (02 5125751) it is a very busy taverne.

The area surrounding the Grande Place in Brussels is replete with restaurants (and their touts) catering to the tourist trade. I imagined this restaurant, located inside the upscale Galerie de la Reine, would be yet another overpriced touristy place but a look through the window at the patrons and a glance at the menu displayed thereon suggested otherwise. In fact,... More

This restaurant is an Art Deco delight in the heart of the European capitol of Brussels. The food is a good sampler of Belgian cuisine at reasonable prices. It's a popular place for local residents who are notoriously proud of their good taste in food. I give this two thumbs up for its fast, efficient and friendly service and great... More

If you are in Brussels for 24 hours this place is a good stop for lunch. All the specialties of the low lands are served here from filet Americaine to croquettes- it's not the best in Brussels but still good enough. Given its location between the "grande place" and the main train station this place is not cheap. Other posts... More

We looked forward to lunch here for months and were not disappointed. Moule Frites with Belgian ale was wonderful. My daughter enjoyed the veal chop and we had ice cream for dessert. Service was perfect and these were the best mussels i have ever enjoyed. I do not get the negative reviews. Our experience was peefect.
