Great hamburger (with maroilles cheese)!

Reasonably priced and large helpings at this "standard" brasserie. Quick and friendly service. Try the hamburger with this northern French cheese and the mussels were good too. They had a Rose Cidre which was very good too.

We had the provincial specialty of the house, braised beef, Turkey in cheese sauce and welsh ( welsh cheese and ham in pot). Very different to what we thought, but delicious. Sometimes it pays to go with something unknown. Staff were very good and with our limited French and their English we managed to have a lovely meal and drinks.... More

We visited at lunchtime and though they were busy we didn't haveto wait long for service. We were pleased with the portion size and quality of the food..

We picked Brussels when we saw several groups of office workers head in for lunch, which is always a good sign. We were seated in a semi private circular alcove near the bar from where we could see the customers coming and going. We ordered the "menu gourmand" which is a choice of one of several dishes of the day... More

We stopped off in Arras on a circulation around Nord Pas de Calais. We have been here before in a group but this time just two of us. We both had the burger and chips. Neither of us are burger eaters as a rule but these are like homemade rather than Quick or Mac. Both cooked medium rare and both... More

Brussel's Café is one we use whenever in Arras. It is situated in the right hand corner of Grand Place. The staff are always efficient & friendly & speak English. I recommend the Flemish Beef Stew!

Our family of four adults arrived at this restaurant on Sunday, March 16, 2014, just as they were closing for lunch. The English speaking hostess who greeted us said they were about to close for lunch and asked us to wait while she finds out if it's too late to be served. Hostess came back after a couple of minutes... More

dinner for 2 on a Saturday night, so busy but no great problem just a longer wait for food. My wife's dish of kidney in Madeira sauce was fine, however a simple omelette and chips was beyond the cooks competence. Omelette burnt and chips must have been in the fryer 3 or 4 times they were so grossly inedible.I left... More
