Ordinary and rather lackluster French food. Service slow and inattentive, prices rather high. Look for something else while you're in Wemmel.

I went there while I was on business in Wemmel. It was rated the best so I wanted to check it out. I was not disappointed at all. It had excellent food and the service provided was excellent as well. It will be my first choice if I am back in Wemmel.

Lovely evening. Friendly welcome and polite service. Choose the suggestions: Irish Steak and Couronne d'Agneau. Fantastic dinner for two and good value for the quality. Better to book beforehand or arrive early as people are starting to look beyond the external appearance.

I had a good dinner, with meat and a Roquefort sausage. I advise this restaurant. The atmosphere is quiet and the service is good

When I travel to Brussels I can by no way miss to dine at the Aquarius which I consider much better than just a Brassere because of its cosy decor, refined cuisine and whatever I ate there I have never-ever been disappointed nor had any complain to formilate. Everything is extremely fresh and beautifully presented. My favoured is eel in... More

Decent food with excellent service but small portions if you have the menu. This is a good restaurant-bistro but I suggest you eat a la carte If you are hungry. :-)

We have come back to this place many times because of the great food and friendly people. Highly recommend the sole muniere, also the moules [mussels] when they are in season. The patron will come and chat in French or Flemish or English, perhaps other languages as well.

Great restaurant for simple but very decent food. Not at all expensive for what you get.
