Food was great as was the service. The fried cheese appetizer was not related in any way shape or form - to mozzarella sticks. Creamy goodness and not nearly as heavy.. No dipping sauce needed. I don't want to know how to make them because I'd eat too many. Husband said it was some of the best escargot he's had.... More

All the menu items are of great interest. I dined with 10 others and no one was unhappy with any item. I love the mussels so I always eat those. A friend got the salad with sushi and smoked salmon that was every bite as good as my favorite meal in France last spring. I was told the pork was... More

I previously reviewed this place as great but was disappointed tonight, not because the food was bad but because I wasn't able to have any! Restaurant shows on it's front door that it closes at 10 PM but at 9:25 PM on Saturday night, 12 April 2014, several patrons were surrounding the bar but the exterior doors were locked tight...

I really enjoyed this restaurant for the authentic Belgian food and very attentive staff. I opted to test the water so to speak and ordered the curried mussel pot. It was very good and I look forward to trying the garlic and white wine pot. I started the meal with a tomato basil soup that was one of the best... More

We discovered Belle Vie when my daughter was living in Belgium. We read about the Belgian style of cooking and wasted no time going there. We have never given up on Belle Vie. They even serve the best "frites" ever and, true to the Belgian style, are served with mayo. It is very European in style and flavor (the owners... More

Enjoyed lunch - food was excellent for all. I had the soup which was excellent. Believe server was new - didn't ask for drink order first, very shy - didn't follow normal procedure for giving special- offering suggestions - bringing wine etc. Very nice and polite but not trained.

The mussels are incredible. The whole meal was incredible. We were a table of five and everyone loved their meal. Rack of lamb, an unbelievable burger, appetizers, mussels and dessert. Highly recommend.

Decided to take my girlfriend out for a European style restaurant experience, Service was excellent, the decor and layout was very well done. However it did feel rather noisy at times and we were struggling to hear each other. The food was of a high standard, although not quite up there with some of the best I've eaten in London.... More
