We often come here and have lunch or dinner with friends/family. The quality is consistently excellent, fair prices, lovely atmosphere and friendly service. Highly recommend this Bistro to all our friends and relatives. The chef is the owner of the restaurant which is always a good thing. In summertime there's a great outdoor terrace, in wintertime you can ask to... More

We went there with friends for a nice meal out: as well the steak frites, as the mussels and the fish were excellent... Straightforward classics, pure and simple in a nice atmosphere.

On our way home from France we always try to avoid the restaurant next to the gas stations. TripAdvisor is always a very useful tool to find a nice restaurant close to the highway. Bistro 19 is exactly that! Great little Bistro where all the locals go with a parking in front (next to the church) so luggage is safe.... More

We've eaten mussels all around as my daughter adore them, eaten some good eaten some bad but in the picturesque town of Overijse, Bistro19 stands out again, great size, fresh, excellent fries and the service as always enchanting. We truly love this restaurant. Highly recommend this place!

I eat here often and recommend the ribs, the sole, the scampi in the house sause, etc. I don't think I have eaten something I don't like. I wish they took credit card.

Good, honest food that warmed us up on a rainy and cold Sunday. The warm bread served as soon as we sat down was gorgeous and my cheeseburger was delicious (a huge portion it was). We couldn't finish the bowl of chips that came with the food. My husband had carpaccio as a starter & steak afterwards and was incredibly... More

Spent Valentines eve in this lovely resto. Menu in Dutch yet waiters are very friendly and were kind to translate. Quite a few of meat dishes all served with free choice of delicious fries/crockets etc. Bill of 55€ for 2 mains, desserts & softs. Simple and tasty food. Good price/quality. Will definitely come back.

This is the one place you need to experience. I am so grateful for the Euro-Star that got me here within 2 hours. When I need a comfort food hit I'll get the train from London. Its like walking from your bedroom out into your own dining room : all you have to do is sit, enjoy and eat. You... More
