“A great experience...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Line at this place was almost nonstop all day and night long. We were intrigued. Everything deep fried so not the healthiest option of our trip but wow, amazing. We tried several items and loved them all. You order your food and then go to one of the bars adjacent to this place and order your drinks. The bars do not serve any food at all. Our concierge told us this was a must.

“Don´t waste your time.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Poor service, average fries and sauces, absolutely overcrowded by tourists and locals, it was a once in a lifetime experience to me. Please don´t waste your time: Brussels is packed of better friteries, so go somewhere else and enjoy on sightseeing the time you will be gaining. If there´s a "must try" in Belgium, I go for the mussels.

“Must try!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

These fries are clearly a bit of a legendary thing in Brussels. We queued and although they are just fries they are very nice and so are the sauces, and its great to sit outside a pub or in the park with these fries! Try them, you won't regret it!

“A Brussels institution”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Rated as the best frites in Brussels I have no reason to disagree. This unassuming kiosk in the middle of Place Jourdan car park is a cheap place to fill up. A huge cone of frites comes in under €3 and many of the bars nearby allow you to take them in. They also do other things like sausages, kebabs and fish fingers. I'm working my way through the long list of sauces which go with the frites. Andalus is my favourite so far.

“Irritating to wait for long time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

I was terribly disappointing with their speed in service. We were excited about having fries here. When we went to this place, there was big queue with 50 people ahead of you. Can you waste 2 hours for fries in a touristic place? every minute is precious so we had fries from a nearby place which was better since wasting 2 hours here would have made us miss our bus back to Netherlands!! Terrible service ever seen!!!
