“Loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

The monthly menu is very good value with a lot of choice although if you want to try the Thai cuisine then you have to go à la carte. That said, the food was delicious and the service was discreet yet friendly. If the weather is good then definitely eat out on the terrace... it's bright, sheltered and spacious. We'll definitely be going again.

“Belgian Thai Cuisine Marriage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Unique place where you can have a nice Belgian entre, followed by aThai main course. Well, both of excellent quality and served with a smile!
Good value for money, very nice maritime atmosphere, relatively expansive menu for Brussels. Very nice garden seating, as well as a separate guest room also available from this splendid family establishment. Come here every quarter for over 8 years. Yes, its worth of your visit!

“good, but not special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Le Crabe fantome must be close to acquiring the status of an institution by now, so long has it been serving good, unpretentious food. Always very pleasant - safe, but not spectacular

“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Very pleasant restaurant with a courteous and hospitable staff (always a big plus in this town, especially when there is a grumpy restaurant, Le Jules d’Emilie, next door). The menu is various, tasty and creative. I am going back next week!

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

I was expecting something much more given the nice decoration and the feel of the restaurant. Deceived by the name, I ordered seafood. Big mistake!It was very average. My friends who ordered steaks seemed to really enjoy their meal however. If you end up there, don't be deceived like me, go with meat not fish.
