One would think that a place where they have had two servings for years, at 19.30 and 21.30, would be organised in a away to be able to serve all people who obviously come at the same time to dine. Well, not in this place! The food was nice. However, a very rude weiter who would not apologise for not... More

There's something about walking into a restaurant and being instantly told off that really spoils the pleasure of dining out. We'd long wanted to try this place and arrived admittedly late for the first service at 7:30pm. But there are ways to let diners know that they will have slightly less time for their supper than by being told off... More

It is a nice restaurant with a good atmosphere, although a bit crowded. The place is known for the organ meat, but we ate vol-au-vent. The portion was just big enough, but the taste was nice, freshly prepared and with good chicken pieces. We got some fresh mayo and fresh french fries (with a bit special taste). The wine that...

I went there with my wife the first weekend in September 2014. It was a warm evening and we got a table in the back yard, which was just perfect. The food was very Belgian and very good. My choice was lambs tongue for starter, mash with sausages for main course and both were excellent. The service was really good,... More

This restaurant is amazing! One of the best meal I never add. If you like offal, this is THE place to try. And if by any chance your dates are not offal ‘’amateur’’ (which is more than probable) no worries, they will find something to their satisfaction on the menu. My husband had the wagyu steak and it was to... More

A group of 4 us visited Viva M'Boma, we had looked in advance & knew the orientation of the menu. However, 2 of us had Onglet Beef Steaks 1 had Horse Steak & another Chicken Vol au Vent. Mains were reasonably priced & were good portions. The steak was one of the best i've ever had, cooked medium rare. (Not... More

I don't know what it is with the service in Brussels but this one was exceptionally bad. So bad so that I remember it enough to write a review. I visited this place back in 2010. I don't know who they thought they were but they treated us like lower quality people, looked down on us. I won't return there... More

If you're looking for a restaurant with both traditional Belgian cuisine and some more adventurous selections on the menu this is your place! It's turned into one of our favorite restaurants in the city and is in a delightfully walkable neighborhood.

A quick dinner before the theatre. We had pot au feu and américaine with the house rosé. Very kind waiter that took his time presenting and chatting even though the terrace was getting full. The food is great though it should be said that the plates are in Michelin guide style meaning that you should not expect the huge portions... More

A place to discover. If you like stakes or offal specialties (brains, kidneys, sweet brains) this is a place to eat at one of the most popular area of Brussels. I have been at this restaurant over 5 times and have always been very satisfied from the food, but again I like this kind of specialties. However one can also... More
