It is one of the most touristy streets of Brussels. It is full of restaurants, well actually I think it's all there on the street, restaurants of all kinds, and all the Belgian specialties (mussels, potatoes ...) along with pizza, spaghetti and others. I can not comment on the food because I was quite overwhelmed and did not eat there... More

The Rue des Bouchers is a terrible idea, whether you're looking for a pleasant walk in the medieval town centre (unless you like being heckled and aggressively cat called) or if you're looking for dinner (unless you enjoy over priced, distasteful and fake belgian cuisine). To be avoided.

I had lunch at one restaurant called Brasserie Belle Epoque, it had "formule", it means starter, main course and dessert for 18 euro but I didn't like it. The guy on the street even offered us free drinks to convince us to eat there but the food wasn't good so the cheap becomes expensive.

It's one of the must-sees in brussels. The Restaurants there are very touristy but it's a visit worth, especially if you want to try the beers at Delirium, then you'll have to walk by that street anyways.

This is a most interesting food street, great not only for people watching but also for interesting food at reasonable prices. When in Brussels I never fail to revisit this street.

A lot of restaurants run by North African born/background immigrants. Pushers stroll in front the restaurants and they know all the tricks to lure you inside. I fell into the rap. I browsed the menu and was about to order a 21 € meat portion. The owner then flashed me a laminated paper with pictures of attracting dishes (but not... More

The more attractive it looks, the worst food you get; go away and pass it as quick as you can; it is so bad !

One pedestrian only street lined on both sides with delightful small cosy restaurants. Each competing to be the best.

I first stumbled upon this little alley when I was walking through Les Galleries and I was impressed by how nice it looked with tables and chairs out in the street and the awnings from each side of street almost overlapping with each other. It didn’t take me long to work out what this street actually was though, as I... More

This is a great street for restaurants and bars - yes you get some hassle with them trying to tempt you in but we found them all good fun and able to banter with and all in good fun with no arrogance.....just learn to walk with your head down if not ready to eat, but lots of choice and nice...
