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 stopped in for lunch after a morning visiting Vimy. The Brussels Cafe in in one of the old Flemish squares in the town centre. The food was great. We had local dishes and tasty rudy beer. The food was done perfectly. It was served quickly and cheerfully. The atmosphere inside the cafe is casual and welcoming. The whole experience... More

Wandered past here while having a look around the Grand Place in Arras on Sunday. Weather was nice an the place was packed including all the outside seating and seemed to consist of plenty of locals so seemed a good bet. It turned out to be so a great spot for a burger and some salad in the sunshine. Service... More

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 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
