If you like tapas, or always wish you had ordered what your neighbour had, or find it hard to make up your mind, then this is the place for you. The owners once worked for one of Brussels' best party caterers, and they have brought this philosophy into the restaurant. You don't get big servings of one dish, but have... More

My best friend who lives in Brussels took me to lunch here when I last visited. You pick either two or three dishes and they are all served at the same time. I started with Gravadlax, then a pasta dish and finally a chicken in a soya sauce. Small portions but perfectly sufficient for lunch. The restaurant staff left us... More

For all those that are desperately searching for creativity in the Brussels cuisine. Only a few restaurants in Brussels can claim to be able to surprise its guests. This restaurant is not very well known and is additionally not very visible from the street. The interior is very tasteful and modern and you feel immediately comfortable. The menu is presented...

Point bar is a must visit restaurant. I have been there a few times and each one was great. The environment is great; nice lightning and homy and elegant decoration at the same time. I always ask for a table close to the street as the space is even nicer and its not so close from the kitchen. Personnel is... More

The restaurant is located in a small street not far away from the Toison d'Or. The experience starts with the colorful menu and the way you can choose your courses. The food is gorgeous and served in a very original way : in small glasses and pots. Make sure to reserve as from Thursday it can get very busy!

Well worth seeking out this unobtrusive 'restobar'. It has an unusual approach to dining - you choose three dishes and they all come at the same time, in a wide variety of glasses. The quality of the food was a little variable - from excellent to slightly odd. Service was very good, and the surroundings are very chic.

We visited this attractive restaurant on a particularly bleak November evening looking for something different after a week of institutional food and brasserie fare. We were not dissapointed. We had a warm welcome at Point Bar and found the ambience just right; comfortable and conducive to good conversation. The food is extremely intersting and enjoyable, with new combinations of flavours,... More

Dit restaurant werd ons aangeraden door een collega die ons vergezelde. Ik had nog nooit van dit restaurant gehoord en zou er waarschijnlijk ook zo voorbij gelopen zijn indien het me niet was aangeduid. We hebben gekozen voor de drie gerechtjes voor € 18 euro. Ik had de bisque de scampi, pasta parmesan pancetta en walabi pepper. Alles was heerlijk... More

This is an achingly modern place designed to challenge diners as well as provide them with delicious, light healthy food You will need to have the concept explained to you while you read the menu - in the form of a perspex column. You choose three options from this which then turn up exquisitely prepared in glass dishes - so... More

The food was great, the concept is great. I really enjoyed the dishes. The price is a little high, but I see why it could be justified given the level of attention to detail for each micro dish. Starters 10 euro, mains 27 euro, desserts about 8ish. Wines start at 17 for house and average about 24 for a bottle.... More
