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

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.
