Good food but too small portions, service could have been better, nice atmosphere, but what spoiled it was the high price. Went to the restaurant without reservation. The waiter was a little strange, perhaps a rookie? Food was fine, although a dish with 4 prawns, a little mozarella and two spoonfuls of salad for 24 Euros seems to be overly... More

Well positioned in the better part of the city Le Monde est Petit also attracts the better clients. They are welcomed in a cosy - even homey - bistro style interior. As the place is always packed (limited number of tables) and the kitchen is open the noise level is quite high. The seating is most comfortable in the back... More

A very nice an cozy neighbourhood restaurant. Great wether you want to go on a date, with friends/family or even with business contacts. The food was excellent, and the staff nice and friendly with good knowledge of what they served. One of my favourites in Brussels!

We planned an excellent anniversary dinner, called four days earlier, made a reservation for Saturday at 7:30, the hostess confirmed and had us spell our name. Showed up at 7:30 and a cook working in the back informed us that they were closed. They may have excellent food (we wouldn’t know) but their staff could certainly use some additional training.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with the restaurant. It was recommended to us by friends with an apartment in the neighborhood - and for good reason. The food was wonderful wonderful wonderful and the service and ambiance were perfect. If you have difficulty with French, note that they are on Facebook - you can access photos of their monthly specials... More

I've always been curious about this place and finally found the right opportunity to test it. I was not disappointed and the previous reviews provide an accurate description of the place and the food. The big strength of this place is the creative and great food. There's a limited offer but the dishes are intriguing and out of the beaten... More

Food is excellent, tasty and creative, nearly to perfection. We had half lobster and zucchini flower stuff with crab meat for starters. Presentation of the dish-zucchini flower was so colorful, delicate, refined that it was a pity to eat it. My main course was Pigeon. It was 2 pieces boneless, juicy and tasty pigeon meat accompanies with excellent choices of... More

The advantage of this restaurant is that it is easy for business lunches a little bit outside the center. The food is nice, very creative, but small portions for the price. The service is a little bit cold and not always fast enough.

I would describe this place as casually elegant with effortlessly great food. Went there on my own, for dinner, without reservation on Wednesday night - it seemed I got the last table. The service was impeccable, attentive and friendly. Food was very good, fresh and feeling healthy. I would go back.

Eaten here several times over the past year, usually on business lunches. The quality of the food is reasonable but the portions small and far from cheap. The staff are a mixed bag, some charming, others downright rude.
