A fine restaurant, not the best value for money though

The atmosphere was overall good and professional with many high-quality details, but also a few mistakes - not grave, but noticable. The meals were very good as expected, but only some hit the absolute highs, even after having added the truffles, which are at considerable extra cost. And, contrary... read more

Visited already for business and this time for fun. As the name suggests perfect for truffle lovers. It is classy but also homy, a feeling that - in our experience - just few starred restaurants are able to give out. Food is excellent and staff great.

The dishes are mostly worked around the possible combination with truffles, mostly black. Food is fine quality, wine cellar also. A place to go if you like this type of food and you are not in Italy.

I have been passing by "La truffe noire" many times and one evening I decided to eat my diner there. I was expecting classic recipes with premium products. I got decent food in a pretentious environment with snooty staff and high prices. I ordered pasta in creamy sauce with truffles, coffee/chocolate creamy desert, wine and coffee. The pasta was ok,...

We had a special offer through "Dining with Stars". We went for the lunch. The restaurant has valet service ( needed in Brussels), and the inetrior is very nice, classy. The menu was great and the service impeccable. Maybe a bit too "classical" kitchen and slightly expensive.

Our son loves truffles and so we decided to try La Truffe Noire while we were visiting Brussels for the weekend. It was highly recommended on many food sites, not just Tripadvisor. In terms of best dishes, the tasting menu is the only way to go. This menu is imaginative and, most importantly, delicious. We also did the wine pairing,... More

Table-side preparation of the carpaccio by the manager and owner Luigi, everything by etiquette, kind an welcoming personnel, amazing food with excellent wines to accompany the menu... A surprising fumoir on the first floor with a small but quality collection of cigars. Great whiskey and cognacs. Cosy terrace... I would definitely recommend La Truffe Noir for any type of dinner,...

We visited this restaurant with a voucher I got from my former colleagues as a goodbye gift (Bongo). The menu for this voucher was superb, especially the ravioli with poached egg and truffles was my favourite (see picture). There was an option to add truffles (+€10 for the starter; €20 for the main course), which I did while my partner... More

We hesitated for a long time to come here and now I ask myself why! This restaurant has been an amazing culinary trip through Truffe land. Friendly service, amazing food and the price not even over the top. We will come back as soon as possible!

Everything is so nice here. My friend tried the signature dish menu and I went a la carte. To start with, the carpaccio for beef and shrimp were both superb. Luigi would prepare the beef carpaccio and it was a very spectacular performance! Simple things like scrambled eggs are also very tasty. My main course, the pigeon was beyond imagination.... More
