Wow! I was taken to this restaurant by my Belgian friends and it's a gem of gastronomic activity. Favored by the locals themselves and not a tourist in sight, it's a wonderful place to sample some authentically good Belgian food. I had the beef stroganoff and the meat melted on the fork. Unpretentious, friendly and full of the ambiance of... More

My partner and I found this place by chance when we were hunting for a place to settle down for lunch. The moment we entered the restaurant we felt it was the right choice - the decor was warm and inviting against the cold winter outside. We jumped straight to mains - I had grilled fish dishes while my partner... More

I've been a patron of this place for many years now. Every time I am in Brussels, which is too often to my taste, I try to mitigate the experience by booking a table at l'Ogenblik. I've never been disappointed and I sincerely hope that I shall never be. Ambiance of this place is exceptional. It is very close (literally,... More

This is an amazing place for a special meal in Brussels. The decor is traditionally Flemish, the menu french style. The panier of scallops and langoustine is especially recommended

This is a very exceptional Flemish-looking restaurant, named "l ' Ogenblik" (a moment) is therefore well chosen. A short distance from the Grand Place, Manneken Pis and Jeanneke Pis and around many cozy streets. Price / quality top!

Bottom line - our experience was ruined by two servers who were rude and rushed us throughout. We cannot agree with other TA contributors. If this is the real Brussels/Belgium experience, this restaurant is a bad representation. It suffers terrible service and the food, although classic, is not all that. This restaurant is located inside the Galeries St. Hubert shopping... More

Luis managed to offer us a table for 2 even if the restaurant was crowded. And this made our evening - after spending time on the rue Boucher without finding a restaurant like this one! Charming location, lovely atmosphere and excellent food. Luis even managed to serve us a menu! The best dinner in Brussels ever. An evening I won't... More

Don't try this restaurant if you are watching your budget - this will be an expensive experience. But if you want to try a real Brussels / Belgium experience, then this is the place to go. Excellent dishes, slightly grumpy waiters, good wine - all in a traditional Brussels setting. Anyway, we loved it. Before we leave Brussels we will... More
