Decent steak frites in a fish restaurant

Ate here while in Brussels on business, and had a very pleasant evening. The service was attentive without being overbearing, and the overall atmosphere in the restaurant was very good. As a business destination the tables were perhaps a little close to discuss sensitive topics, but we didn't need... read more

In our 4 night trip to Brussels, this was our best meal there. We hadn't booked and was very lucky to get a lunch there. We both had steaks and shared a side salad which was plenty. It was one of the best steaks I've ever had, the blue cheese sauce was gorgeous, the salad was delicious, even the bread... More

Very nice fish food, well cooked. The service is fast (which is nice for a business lunch), but quite impersonal. The prices are on the higher end, but of course, you are in the center of Brussels. No intimacy on the tables: the place is very small and made to serve a maximum of people. Good place for a quick... More

I love the location inside the famous XIX century Galleries St Hubert, the classical deco bistrot / brasserie type is very warm and the staff is very professionnal. Wonderful tradionnal french and belgium cooking with old season recipe and very well done dessert. All discerning gourmet will love it.

Amazing and quiet restaurant, with an intimate decoration. Loved the risotto, the service and the restaurant placement (in the center of Brussels).

I just had dinner here with a large-ish group of colleagues and could not have been happier with my meal. Everyone else liked theirs as well. I had the smoked tuna tataki starter (three slices of perfectly seared smoked tuna with soy-based sauce and a small bunch of cucumbers and greens on the side) and the fish "en papillote" with...

This place has been a hit for over 3 decades, and never went down. Situated in the heart of old gastronomic Brussels, in the typical pedestrian area, at the entrance of one of the world's most beautiful old covered gallery, this typical brasserie serves the best of Belgian and french food the most" brasserie-way" you can imagine. The boys are... More

In the middle of Brussels Centre, in gallery de Princes, 24 of us stumbled into this lovely and very small restaurant. We had a reservation of course and the people told us we could eat a la carte, but seeing this large a group they decided to limit the carte to 3 options per course. All the plates of a... More

My friend who accompanied me eats there at least once a month and the staff was really friendly and helpful. The food was perfectly presented and prepared and the location is great. It was a full restaurant, so we were directed upstairs until a table opened up and we were seated as quickly as was practical. I really enjoyed the... More
