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

Been here five times. Service has never been great but their steaks are amazing! Read a lot of other comments and I can relate to a lot of them to be honest. Last twice we've been there there were only English speakers there. Obviously I would not try to speak French to the staff so would recommend English if you... More

Arrived without a reservation expecting to be turned away but...found a table for us. Apart from delivery of menus to us that was it for well over 20 minutes, yes we timed it - unintentionally due to GSM's but we're pretty close. Along the way, we heard the staff make some rude comments to another table while ignoring us. The... More

Good location near park and quite private dining for works office meal in the evening. Interesting flavours and combinations. Excellent portion size and drink selection. Worth venturing out of the center of Belgium to experience this restaurant.

The setting is absolutely beautiful. A little "chateau" close to the airport. It is the perfect place for a business lunch. Foremost because of the extremely efficient service. One has barely made his choice and you already get what you ordered. Really impressive ! I've never experienced such a fast service. The menu has two levels. There is the typical... More

A wonderful location near Brussels airport. Excellent grilled sole on a beautiful outdoor deck. Perfect food and superb service! A nice last European dining experience prior to the flight home the following morning!

I had dinner in this restaurant during a business trip. Service was quite unprofessional, but nothing to get mad about. The hall was quite full and noise was unacceptable, you could not hold a conversation with the person sitting next to you, let alone across the table. Food itself was just OK, I tried some fish and, as usual in... More

There is enough choise on the menu and they have suggestions as well - per season I suppose. Nice service. Prices are ok, but I expected more food for that price. I ate the salmon with salted baked potatos and lettuce hearts. Salmon was deliciuously baked. I loved my meal!
