As an early review says - faultless food! But is this all that matters?!?

Part of the attempts to see more of what the Brussels area can offer in terms of high end gastronomy I took one offer from Restodays and had lunch with a friend at this place. Once there we went out of the Restodays offer and got the extended menu proposed and there is only appreciation to what we... read more

We had dinner at the Michel restaurant which actually was not the best one. Food was in general OK. Nice presentation, but I found a piece of a toothpick in my dessert... it should not happen at this level. The real problem though was the service. After a very good start and quite (too) quick of change from snacks to... More

Good value for money, original cuisine, excellent chef and service. A very good one Michelin star restaurant not far from Brussels. The must is the kindness and friendliness of the owners which shows all over the food, the drinks and the service. A place where to go, no risk of being disappointed.

Beautiful restaurant, family-friendly (we went with a little girl 11 months old and they've been very helpful), absolutely gorgeous food, well thought menu. If i am to be picky for that price, service was a bit of a let down - they were not at all proactive, we sat with empty glasses without anyone noticing few times... Had to ask... More

Visited this restaurant on a special occasion "week of the restaurent" and the food was really nothing special. The sitting area is nice but the service was not great also. Better food and service at restaurant " terborght" in Huizingen.

We frequent Michel from time to time, it always provides a high quality meal and friendly service. The ambiance is relaxed and it is a lovely place to bring friends, family and customers.

We had a 5-course diner. 2 starters, a main dish and 2 desserts. Both starters were nicely presented and original in taste. Also the mail dish was ok. Both desserts seemed a bit copu paste, both chocolate mousses with fruit. The quality of the food is very good. A pity that only one glas of white wine and one glass... More

The service is not that friendly but very Profesional... We are in the Flanders side so not much more to expect. The food is amazing! The best restaurant from the various I have been. Do not know how expensive since both times did not pay but it must be really expensive. Wine selection really good. If you have the money... More

What do you expect from a restaurant that receives a coveted Michelin star ?Of course faultless food. Excellent service. And, is it asking too much, even value for money. Michel just scrapes by. Negatives first. The attractive terrace is somewhat spoiled by the noise from the nearby motorway. The service,from some of the staff,can be somewhat "heavy " . You... More
