“Slow start but one of the best in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

What do you do late in the evening, tired and hungry? Well in my case I went out for some restaurant hunting using Tripadvisor of course. I walked around for maybe 15 minutes in the area and it was not easy to find any good restaurants – most of the restaurants around the square looked like cheap pizza places and I was not at all interested in either of them. My interest was however awakened by the restaurant BE Cocktails & Fine Food which has the same entrance as the excellent Sofitel hotel. The ambience was really good and I immediately felt that this was right for me. I got a table very fast and could sit down to start to enjoy the evening. The service was a bit slow in the beginning and they could be a little faster especially when they see that the menu is closed – I was actually starting to get a bit irritated but I am also a very impatient person – at last I got eye contact with them and then everything started to go in the right direction. I had veal and that was just excellent cooked, with that I had mashed potatoes and it could have been a bit warmer to be honest but really nothing to complain about. The wine was also excellent. I also got bread with two different types of butter with different flavour and that was really good. The service was actually excellent in the end and I could only say the following - don't wonder arround and look for a suitable restaurant instead take the shortcut to this place and enjoy your evening. I know where to go when I am in Brussels the next time.

“One of the few places in Etterbeek for a quiet business lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

The BE is the bar and everyday restaurant of the Sofitel Brussels hotel. A recent makeover has made it more charming, although it is perhaps a little impersonal for all but a business lunch. Its strength lies in the tables being spaciously set out, with the possibility of easy conversation, unlike many restaurants in the neighbourhood. Of course, it all comes at a price: 28€ for two courses from the set menu; 38€ for three, without coffee or other drinks. The à la carte selection is recommended for those on more serious business expenses.

The food can be very good and the service is professional. Recommended.
