This is a Brussels icon and the food, especially the beef, is genuinely very good. Service too, but it has been caught in the tourist trap and the temptation to milk its fame. The prices have gone up a lot in recent years and it is now really overpriced. It is not fine-dining but you would think so from the... More

Vincent is a highlight of the gastronomic tourist route, in Brussel centre. We have been there many times, in the past, but not recently. The main attraction are the walls, covered with large pictures, made of old tiles. The North Sea ones by far the best. We went there a week ago, for a special New Year treat. Well, it... More

Vincent was recommended to us by locals and four of us ate there on the Saturday night before Christmas. We are experienced travellers and are generally not put off by the service but on this night Vincent could not meet even our low standards. The restaurant was only half full. Our waiter from the outset seemed far too busy to... More

Great food and wine and the restaurant itself is intriguing. You have to walk through the kitchen to get to the seating area and the decor is inspiring. The only negative comment I would give is that our waiter was quite unprofessional. However, half way through the night we got a new waiter and everything was great.

Having been recommended this restaurant by our hotel, we booked for the Saturday night. There are only two sittings available, 7pm and 9pm. We arrived at 8.50 and were told brusquely that we would have to wait as we were 10 minutes early although we could see lots of empty tables. Despite some comments on here, our waiter was very...

I had visited Vincents around 5 years ago and now wanted to have the experience once again. The table was booked some days in advance just to be sure we have the evening set. The experience started already from the entrance of the restaurant - it is through the kitchen. My friend was even unsure if we had entered the... More

This was our first visit to Brussels for 11 years and our return to Vincent's did not disappoint. We were looking forward to the traditional food and excellent service. The meal, especially the beef, was beautiful and our waiter attentive and helpful.

This is a typical restaurant that falls in the category of tourist traps. You're being treated like you've been here 3 times, i.e. the 1st time, the last time and the only time. Don't bother, there are much better and friendlier places also near the Grand Place.

Expensive, always full, but the place is worth trying to get in. The decor alone is worth the attempt. If you get in, bon appétit! You won't regret it.

For me it is the best restaurant in Brussels . Especially for ita meat. The wine is alai fantastic. You Must book otherwise you can not find a place . The food is prepared in the middle of the restaurant with a ritual. The meat is delicious so does the wine. Service is ok.
