Reliable, quick and always good quality

Mariadal is where I come when we want to be sure. Sure that the food is good, sure that the service is good, sure we get in and out in a reasonable time, sure we can stay longer if we want, sure it is a good solid experience. The menu is interesting and always with some nice specialities. I often... read more

We took our friends who love eating in beautiful restaurants to Mariadal in Zaventem. The welcome was courteous. Inside, we were immediately impressed by the beauty of the place. They kept some features of the old châteaux. Tables were neatly set with adequate space in between. Each of us took different starters; we had steak and fish for the main... More

Spent a rainy Belgian Saturday in this nice and elegant restaurant. Excellent food, well prepared and presented on the plates. The price for the Menù Chateau (starting at 37, wine and water excluded) is fantastic compared to the quality offered. They have also the branca on Saturady at 20 Euros, but I strongly suggest to spend more and get extra... More

The warmly lit up windows in the rainy and dark Zaventem park, already tipped my expectations to have a great dinner for our company of +/-50. The reception was friendly - you get a view of the kitchen and realize this is not a small operation. Initial drinks and tidbits were above average and plenty. Decoration underneath the high ceilings... More

I had a menu there at 37 EUR. I liked a lot risotto but the other two dishes were just ok and didn't surprise, especially providing price supplement for fish and cheese. The latter was really of minimal quantity. The restaurant has no parking and it might be not easy to park nearby in the evening. All on all it... More

We had a fantastic lunch here and ordered off of their fixed menu. All of the food we had was fantastic and the wine was nice. If it's raining there are less children here as there is a play area right outside of the restaurant. This can be a plus of minus depending on how you view it. We have... More

Classy brasserie located in a small castle adjacent to a small park. The menu offers a nice selection of upmarket brasserie food and some Belgian classic fare like vol-au-vent (chicken stew) and carbonnades (beef stew in beer). The interior is contemporary, atmosphere very pleasant and service was friendly, multilingual and attentive. I'd go there again without any hesitation.

in the month of September Mussels should be at their best in Belgum...not in this restaurant. Although Mussels are part of their "suggestions", it is probably the worst portion of mussels we ever had. Don't go there unless you want to spend loads of money for less then zero quality. We were not there alone...several people around our table also... More

For our last meal in Brussels after four years living here, we chose the Mariadal. It was also the first place where we dined. Nice setting, very busy (book a day or more in advance!), very attentive and pleasant service and of course great food and drink. We chose the Bruxelloises dishes beef carbonade and boulettes and they were very... More
