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

A small and cosy Belgian-themed restaurant situated across the road from the North Gate of the Workers' Stadium. The menu is well sized with a good variety and there is a very good selection of beers and wines. The steaks are delicious and very reasonably priced. The interior design conjures up memories of sitting in French bistros. The service was... More

Average food, over priced, but mainly spoiled by the disgruntled, resentful service. Only one other table at the time, but service ws still slow, almost like we were forgotten. In the back a group of lumpy westerners were shouting at the staff, scolding them for accepting dirty money. I took it that these were the owners and teh staff did... More

Staying at nearby Swissotel and usually ate out near wherever we were visiting each day. One evening when back earlier than usual, we found this on a stroll, and were delighted. I had a nice, tasty beef in beer casserole, and John had eels in green sauce, which he enjoyed greatly. From London, he used to eat eels a lot,... More
