Belgium in the 70's

I thought entering a country side restaurant in Belgium a couple of decades ago when coming to Morel. Must say, the food is good. We had steak tartare, mussels, black pudding, etc and all delivered. Food is surprisingly authentic and service is ok.

While it may not be as good as it used to be I still love Morel's. Comfortable atmosphere and always good quality food make it a must every time I'm in Beijing. Pot of mussels and a bottle (or 2) of Rochefort and I'm a very happy traveler. Thanks!

Visited with some old Chinese friends and had a very good meal at a reasonable price. We started with mussels and fries followed by an excellent steak perfectly cooked washed with a good red house wine. This was followed by Belgium waffles and fruit could not fault a thing

For the quality, decently priced. A long established family business, the owner is a professional chef from Europe. Cosy atmosphere and friendly service.

Went to this place last year and just noticed it as an option to write a review on. It does what it says: good Belgian food in Beijing. I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. I don't think the lunch menu is extensive enough to go there regularly, but I enjoyed what I had (steak) and would order the same... More

Hubby loved the rabbit stew with a really great sauce. the beef bourgognon is authentic and delicious. food and wine very reasonably priced. Owners involved and very friendly. We've been coming back for 5 years whenever in Beijing and are always pleased.

Fantastic "Moules & Frites" , fantastic Peppersteak cooked the way I have ordered it, great selection of Premium Belgium Beers, French wines at reasonable prices, what more can one want? A traditional European / Belgium place to invite friends or business partners alike and you won't be disappointed! Great spot and close to nightlife spots in Sanlitun area.

An excellent range of Belgian beers, and food reminescent of Belgium too. As a long time worker and resident in Belgium, I have tried quite a few beers and restauarnts, so what a great surprise to find Morel's in Beijing. Don't know if it had outside seating or views, as it was a cold and dark January evening! We were... More
