A great surprise

we were in Hasselt yesterday looking for the Arlechino restaurant. It happens that it was closed and guess what there is a brasserie in the same building and we took the risk. The menu looked good and we went for a main plus dessert.... Meat, scampi, lasagna.... All perfect with good sauce and... read more

In a previous review of this restaurant I rated Het Magazijn four stars. However, my most recent experience was not that good. Me and some friends decided to go in for a quick spaghetti, and after waiting for about 40 minutes - the place was definitely not bustling with activity though - we got served. Horrible spaghetti! We ate some... More

Het Magazijn is one of the best price/quality restaurants in Hasselt. They have a divers menu. And the many vegetarian options are indicated clearly. They have a big terras in the back where you can quietly enjoy you meal.

Be sure to make a reservation, certainly in the weekend, because it is often fully booked. The food is very good price/quality, and the staff is friendly. Nice place to be.

We ordered our food at 20.00h and at 21.00h we still had no food. All the tables on the terrace who were there before us also were not served. We had to cancel our order and go and eat a snack somewhere else. On previous occasions, the service was slow but not this bad. The food is ok (if you... More

I've been going here for about 10 years a few times/year and so I can confirm that nothing much ever really changes. At one time the menus and the interior decoration were updated, but in the end the people are the same, the food is the same and the atmosphere is the same. I love their penne with mozarella and...

It's a really good restaurant, next to the shopping street. It's a modern and light restaurant with a lot of different things to eat. There was a lunch card, with small things, and a part of the card were more dinner things. The staff was very friendy and correct. I had a chickenbreast with apple and a curry dressing. My... More

I have been to this restaurtant a couple of times, and I can't say I have ever been displeased. It's not the greatest cuisine, but simple, tasty traditional dishes are served here at very reasonable prices. The scampi in a creamy tomato sauce are real good, the steak is okay, the spaghetti with bacon and cream is a bit salty... More
