A beautifully decorated place, with amazing teas to chose from, and fantastic books to read. Definitely a lovely place to stop at after seeing the Manneken Pis, and taking so many pictures! (And also all that chocolate you ate!) Staff is very lovely and helpful as well. Everything is very clean: tables, bathrooms, etc. When back to Brussels, I'll definitely... More

This is a nice restaurant with good well presented food at a good value. Seven of us had lunch there and all of us enjoyed our meal. The service was also good, helpful and friendly when we were there. This seems a more local restaurant with more locals and fewer tourist and with a menu that was more contemporary and... More

We ate there on a Friday evening. We didn't want a full bottle of wine so opted for the house. That's usually a safe bet in Brussels, but this red wine was probably the worst I have had here. The food was nice, but the wine spoiled it. And the service was poor. One of the waitresses in particular had... More

The idea is great (food from all around the world) but the quality of the food was inconsistent across the different dishes we tried. The "coucou" was good, but I found the mechoui overpriced. The place however looks great, perfect for a dinner with friends, and I've heard they organise concerts and theatre events.

In the center of touristic brussels, this is a nice space, with a interesting concept and decor.. However I expected more of the food and the service.. As a restaurent is not a good value for money... Maybe better as a bar...

I went to this place for an aperitivo the first time, and I found it great! The kir was delicious, and they also brought some peanuts, which is not very common in Bruxelles. The location is lovely, with wonderful Chesterfield armchairs, and for aperitivo/dinner time there is live music (some days a week), that night there was a lady playing... More

Great, inviting and friendly place with a different touch in decoration and food. Short but sufficient menu, with a touch of middle-east in the spices. Simple but very nicely spiced food. Service was very friendly. The place is popular, so if you don't have a reservation, go early. Definitely a must, and not a touristy place at all.

Excellent food. Nothing special but all dishes came with a nice twist of unexpected spices. The service was good despite a busy evening. Definitely recommended.

I've been here a couple of times and I love it. Since your get to the door (great atmosphere) to the great service to the very interesting menu. She dishes look so great that you often see patrons asking others what they ordered. Go for the salmon with sesame seeds if you like fish. Desserts are fantastic too (speculos cheesecake!).... More
