Good food, good price

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... read 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.

This place is mythical and a legend in Beiijng. I went to this restaurant for the first time around 10 years ago and I loved it. Now it´s the same great taste and excellent quality of the ingredients. A place to eat authentic Belgian food with very good prices. Everything in the menu it´s so good and the service is... More

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

When I was lost, tired and hungry didn't fancy an overpriced trendy western eatery in a glitzy shopping mall I fell in to this place and it was a bit of comfort food after one or two bowls of noodles too many ( don't get me wrong I love beijing food but I was sick as well as being tired... More

I have been to Morel's several times and have never been disappointed. The key food attractions for me are the Morel's salad, the soup of the day, and the mussels. And, of course, the Trappist beer selection! Morel's carries every Trappist beer, except Westvleteren (which is only sold at the abbey store). Always make a reservation because it can fill... More

Nice and cozy place. A bit sparse in the interior but that can in Beijing be seen as an advantage. But the interior can be a bit noisy. The mussels is as stated in other reviews one of the key attractions here, and usually it is fresh and perfect - but a single time the mussels were not fresh (getting... More

I have been living in Beijing for 12 years and have dined at Morel's probably twice a year. One thing is for sure: it has gone down a lot since it's beginnings. There is 1 dish which keeps the place alive - mussles, for those who like it and who dare to eat it in China. The rest is very... More

Excellent Belgian restaurant with a wide selection of imported beer. Can warmly recommend the sausage with mashed potaoes for cold winter days in Beijing
