We liked the look of Arcadi when we walked by in the afternoon, and came back for dinner. Hard to overstate just how helpful every person on the staff was, in an understated way. Lovely Christmas beer; terrific food -- and the feel of the place meant that we found ourselves talking to a nearby diner. We only had one... More

We stopped for dinner on a Saturday evening here meal. It was busy and we were rather packed in, which I didn't mind, but whilst our food arrived very quickly the service thereafter was extremely slow - for example, our plates waited a very long time to be cleared. The waiter who tool our payment was very abrupt. The food... More

We visited Arcadi at various times during our visit to Brussels. Good value, great service. Freshly made Apple and almond tart was amazing. Polite staff and chilled atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit for a relaxing lunch or beer stop.

We chose this place for breakfast for its quietness, flexible service and adequate prices. I wanted only something simple as bread and butter or jam, which was not on the menu but the waiter had no trouble in providing for me. My boyfriend had a mozzarela and omato sandwich which came with fresh basil on top and smelled absolutely lovely.... More

After some recommendations decided to give this busy restaurant a go. I had pasta but it was a bit over cooked however my friend had the quiche which she said was the best she had tasted. They don't have any English menus here but we managed with the French translation. Service wasn't bad but the tables are tiny and far... More

I ate here 3 times and had a great experience each time. I sampled the 'national dishes' in the evening and a lunch. The service was efficient, the waiters spoke some English and were helpful with translation of the menu if required. The service was unobtrusive. It was a wee bit cramped though and the tables a bit small. I... More

Meeting place for the locals. Only drawback is it is very crowded at times and the tables are tiny. To some this only adds to... More

Arcadi is hard to describe. You go there, you see locals, but you also see travelers. You see travelers from other parts of Belgium. It is a real Belgian place, no tourist attraction. Their menu is varied and yet nicely executed. You can taste many Belgian specialties, along with other things. Prices are good, they have good beers. They have... More

Food is ok but definitely overpriced compared with it's neighbors. The horrible thing is the waiter. Several of them just ignore you no matter how many times you wave. No wifi code provided until you order. When you check with them about the menu in French , two of the waiters get impatient. Very impatient and told he he had... More
