Belgian bistro with specialities

Appearance inside was bringing a bit higher hopes - the food was ok, but nothing really special. Friendly staff, good service.

Good atmosphere, especially upstairs in the library bistro. Menu is varied and food was tasty. It is expensive, but then you are in the centre of a capital city. Nice variety of beer with recommended pairings for the food (a bit gimmicky but not a bad idea at all).

This bistro style restaurant is good if you want to have good time with group of friends or colleagues while enjoying beer but the food is not important...but if a restaurant serves food then I always consider its food quality while writing review. .. First of all the service is too slow..even on a busy day only couple of waiters... More

Belge's kitchen is open until 23 (?) p.m. Stylish and romantic dining. Instead of McDonald's burgers, choose Belge's Club Sandwich. Not a fan, but this was probably the best I've ever eaten. Highly recommend if you want to spend a quiet, romantic dinner with your friend or by yourself. Nice.

We visited Belge on a Friday evening. The restaurant was quite full, luckily we had a reservation, but we had to wait for a few minutes, after our reserved time, before we were finally taken to our table. Belge has a very long list of courses in their menu (which was brought between Tintin covers) plus a few special menus.... More

This restaurant is most famous for its mussel dishes and Belgian beer. We had an excellent dinner on my birthday Feb 19. I had a slow cooked lamb shank and My wife had a mussel and Spanish sausage preparation. The food was well prepared and the taste were very good. The service could have been better but the food makes... More

A nice bottle of champagne on offer and great Moules frites with cosy upstairs restaurant. Grand. What we were left wanting was the service that was unorganised at best. Definition of great service for me is that one does not need to find waiting staff they should find you. Still positive visit.

The restaurant is separated in two or actually three floors, where the up most is for dinning. Down stair bar close to the entrance and in the middle floor a bar with a stage for live music. The music is not played to laud and is not disturbing the nice atmosphere when you’re enjoying your meal. The restaurant is built... More

Belge belongs to a chain of restaurants owned by a large finnish cooperative company. That is probably the reason why there is something missing from the concept. The food is ok, I suppose, but while there is a belgian theme, there is no real connection to Belgium whatsoever on a more personal level. There are mussels and fries, and belgian... More
