Delicius

Is a small and simple place, 60' stile, decorated with a few horse pictures on the walls. The meat is really delicious: it was so tender that my knife was cutting butter. The prices are also good considering what you get. If you like horse meat, is a must

Sometimes we come here to have some great horse meat (not so easy to find in Brussels) and we're always satisfied. Small and old fashioned flemish place. A little creepy the pictures of horses on lawns hanging on the walls...but the meat is super!

One of the two best restaurants to go to if u enjoy a good horse steak. About a pound of steak on your plate, add to that a bowl of salad, a portion of french fries adn a good bottle of wine, what more could anyone that enjoys eating well desire? Prices are decent, figure about 30€ p.p. for a... More

If you want a great piece of meat you will love it here. There are no frills, you pay for high quality meat and no faff. Its not cheap by most restaurant standards but its really cheap for a big tenderloin (the only cut they serve). Horse meat for those who haven't had it I would describe as somewhere between... More

At first glance the restaurant looks bizarre. It probably hasn't been renovated since the 1960s. Inside there are beautiful paintings of Belgian Draft Horses and empty horse harnesses hanging from the wall. Previous clients must have eaten them. It is definitely a no frills place. But if you want a good horse steak and fries at a reasonable price, no... More

Meat is really good, luckily, because it's the only dish on their menu. Atmosphere is a bit weird: impersonal service, loud talking personnel and a yelling cook. Also a negative was the extra charges for e.g. Mayonnaise (€2!).

I just read the other 5 reviews and have nothing to add. 500 gr of horse meat, delicious fries, limited wine list, no frills, family run business., fun atmosphere.
