We had dinner with some friends over here since we were looking for nice food in a restaurant with a terrace. I have to say that the terrace is not really nice since arranged in the walking area just few steps from the road. We had starter and main course: the croquette with shrimps are really tasteful and I can... More

For a local neighbourhood restaurant I wasn't expecting much and it lived up to being OK. I will say this, the manager does not seem to be able to stop himself from pulling faces behind customers backs. There is something arrogant about him. If you go in the evening like we did, it is better to reserve a table beforehand,... More

Le Toucan has been around forever and is a reliable place to dine with friends or family. The food is consistently good and the service is fast and attentive. There are very few options for vegetarians (vegans abstain!) but those they have are excellent - try the ricotta and spinach pasta with lemon and sage sauce, it's delicious! It is... More

We've been to the Toucan on a number of occasions - both the Brasserie and the seafood restaurant Toucan Sur Mer - and enjoyed our visits. The Brasserie serves traditional Brussels dishes and although not the best in the city they are nevertheless perfectly adequate. The pricing is reasonable but the service can be patchy dependent on when you go... More

Had lunch in this outstanding brasserie serving excellent Belgian and French food as well fresh seafood prepared by the écaillier (branch @ Toucan sur Mer). Service by the young ladies is efficient and with the smile. If you join by car, they offer valet parking. Nice and cosy decoration.

The wine we chose was off (can happen in any restaurant). 2 of 4 of us wanted an item on the menu, it was announced it was out of season. We... More

The Toucan brasserie is almost part of the landscape in Brussels' Ixelles quarter. It serves typical Belgian food, as well as a few more international dishes. We enjoyed the shrimp croquettes (a favourite of mine whne in Belgium) followed by the duck, and the chipirones followed by the chicken. Prices are fine, though portions are not huge - but the...
