Lunch on a day of no service?

This restaurant is usually thought of as guest friendly. We must have come on a bad day. My lunch partner accidentally spilled her soft drink onto my lap, the table and the floor. I went into the service area to ask for a fabric napkin or a tea towel so I could go and wash the big brown sticky... read more

Good brasserie food but nothing special beside that. Good pastas and meals, big portions and cheap for quantity you get. Setting is nice, can be very busy and noisy as it's a famous place in Brussels. Ideal to hang out with friends, to full you belly quickly and enjoy a few drinks.

This typical belgian brasserie does not oversell itself so you can't be disappointed. It is intended to be a nice hangout for the locals. If you're looking for this kind of ambiance it's about the only option in the neighberhood. I would even go as far as writing that the quality is quite good compared to the price paid. A... More

This is a typical Brussels cafe extended into a fairly large eatery. The atmosphere is great but the quality of the food is low. As a local my advice would be not to try this place if you want to have a real taste of Belgian food. Portions are not very large and you feel like you are having some... More

The one I visit is near to Montgomery ; it is a nice decorated typical brussels brasserie. Simple and fresh food at very reasonable prices. Good portions too.

I have been there more than once -I happen to stay very close and I had meat balls with tomato sauce, burger, spaghetti bolonnaise and there were all really good! The... More

Spent a wonderful leisurely lunch here a few days ago. Food was excellent and service was spot on. Everyone was very friendly and so nice. Overall, good value for the meal provided.

I live in Brussels and dine out regularly. There are currenly four Schievelavabo restaurants, and this review is for the one near Montgomery Circle on Rue du Collège Saint Michel. The restaurant is easilly accessable by Metro and tram. The restaurant seats 60+ in the main room and has seating downstairs for another 20 or so. The decoration is very... More
