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

We went to the Brussel's for lunch. Casual and enjoyable; good variety of of foods available from very light to salads to more substantial fare. Portions were extraordinarily large.

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

We did a bit of research before going to Arras and this place seemed to come high up on a few other sites. How badly can reviews go wrong?! My word this place was bad. Very shabby, poor service, waiters with BO that would stun a heifer at 50 yards, dirty, full of flies. Beer was average, but the food... More

Very good value, quick service and tasty meal on our first night in Arras. Being Easter Monday, most restaurants were closed, but The Brussels Cafe was welcoming and we were glad to be able to have a meal here. Great value and brasserie type atmosphere.

nice for a drink on the terrace in the sun. don't go for the food. fishsoup has little taste and the fish is boiled to death. the rouille is also a pimped kind of mustard... also the waitress was not polite. very expensive also: 8 euros for the poor soup???

What looked a promising place in a lovely setting proved a disappointment. It not being that busy should have given a clue. The waiter got the simple order wrong, and forgot to serve one drink. That's a 20% failure rate ! The Enfants meal (steak burger) disintegrated on touch, and was completely bland in flavour - no wonder he only... More

The restaurant was recommended to us so we decide to try it out. It was a typical brasserie with rather quaint decoration but pleasing to the eye. It was very well situated on the Grand Place. however as it was raining the evening we visited it we had to sit indoors. that was no loss as there were roadworks on... More
