A crazy area with tons and tons of restaurants and cafes and lots of people. Great place to sit somewhere and people watch. Be careful with pick pocketers. I found it fun to walk through and experience this area.

Walk through the street to soak in the atmosphere but eat elsewhere. Only aux armes de Bruxelles serves good food (not coincidently the only restaurant where no one will drag you inside), all the other restaurants are not worth trying. This has nothing to do...More

Feels like a red-light district without the attractions, curb side totes, menus without prices and unbelievable deals. Stay away, 2xKids meals water and a beer set us back 35 euro, luckily we realised it was a scam and did not order adult mains. Waiters became...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)....More

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...More

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....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 !
