I love food and well prepared, tasty frites typically gravitate to the top of my list. Sadly what I received when there was neither well prepared or tasty. The texture was not to my liking and the frites tasted like the establishment needed to change their frying oil. A rancid, off-taste is not desirable, texture notwithstanding. Mercifully the line was... More

Saw the big queues and recommendations for this place so decided to give it a try. We were very disappointed as the fries really were nothing special and definitely not worth the hype. The hot dog was very hard and not very nice. We won't be going back here again.

Every time I visit Brussels, I must past by Maison Antoine for their delicious fries and some other salty food. Never seizes to amaze me. I always get it with Sauce Samurai and it's super delicious. Recommended to everyone who wants to taste some Belgian fries. Expect to wait in line for a few minutes though if you're around lunch... More

Got take away frittes with assorted sauces and enjoyed them across the way at a bar where you're allowed to carry in. They were the only ones we had, so without comparison, all I can say is that they were fresh and hot. Just wish they would have been salted with a heavier hand.

We spent 30 minutes in line to eat these famous fries. This is not a restaurant, by the way. It is a food kiosk that has been here for 60 years. There are no tables, so get your food and find a place to sit in this square. The fries are good, but not amazing.

Delicious twice-cooked fries, served piping hot and crispy with a choice of condiments--most excellent with a good Belgian beer! We went back for seconds!

Same frites that you can find everywhere and even cheaper. Not worth to wait for long time in the queue.

Line at this place was almost nonstop all day and night long. We were intrigued. Everything deep fried so not the healthiest option of our trip but wow, amazing. We tried several items and loved them all. You order your food and then go to one of the bars adjacent to this place and order your drinks. The bars do... More

Poor service, average fries and sauces, absolutely overcrowded by tourists and locals, it was a once in a lifetime experience to me. Please don´t waste your time: Brussels is packed of better friteries, so go somewhere else and enjoy on sightseeing the time you will be gaining. If there´s a "must try" in Belgium, I go for the mussels.
