Excellent service. Rough and ready seating. Wonderful fish starters, averagely good bouillabaisse main course and disappointing dessert. Definitely one to revisit and take friends to for the atmosphere. Pricey - but then almost everything in Brussels is, so definitely competitive. Overall a nice experience.

The usual good food, superb service, which makes this plave our favourite one. But hope you are in good shape to climb the stairs to the restrooms....

Food here is good, but far from justifying it's price tag. The menu is quite extensive, which might contribute to overpricing and to the mediocracy of some dishes. And when you charge 5€ for a drink (a small, normal tap beer), you usually end up in my book as a tourist-trap (which is also how we've heard some locals refer... More

We loved the place! Nice Brasserie-atmosphere in the middle of Brussels. The food is not very special but of excellent quality and very well prepared. The shrimp croquettes were the best I had in Belgium for years! We had a very nice evening. Food and wine are rather expesive though (count on at least €50,- p.p for a full meal... More

Located in a historic building, the restaurant is full of atmosphere and offers a choice of high quality dishes, especially fish. Prices reflect quality though.

Boasting a quality kitchen, the service is also excellent. A little pricy but you will walk away with a smile. Small so reservations recommended, but try and you could be lucky like we were.

Brasserie style restaurant with a great atmosphere. Returned here after a couple of years in the knowledge that it serves the best steaks in Bruxelles. I was not disappointed on this occasion, although my companion got a piece of meat that was not "melting in your mouth" good. The desert was also not quite up to standard ( as I... More

So usually I pour over trip advisor to find the "right restaurant" for the occasion, but today in brussels we needed to sit down after a walk around the square. Impulsively at 1 pm the two of us asked for a table as the place looked lively and bustling on a Monday lunchtime. We did have to climb a few... More

My husband and I had a great meal in this hip brasserie. The entree was outstanding: fusion at its best. The "plat principal" was also very good and of a more traditional style. Nice wine list, hilarious waiters, good service. You do need to reserve a table in advance. If you're looking for a lively atmosphere, this is your place.

An excellent restaurant close to the Grand Place. It is important to reserve in advance as tables are limited and aways full. Meals are mainly fish-based. The presentation is excellent, and there is no skimping on size of portions. Whilst entrees are good, the deserts are even better.
