Friends took us here for dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. The restaurant was light and airy with plenty of space between the tables. The lady responsible for the front of the house was very efficient. The amuse bouche was a trio of lovely tastes....Our generous portion of fried foie gras was delicious, though it would have benefitted from a hint of sourness from the apple and onion, they were a bit too sweet. The recommended Beaume de Venise was a delightful accompaniment. My wife's Vitelo Tonato was outstanding, my deer was beautifully tender, and our friends steaks were cooked to perfection. The house red was very good. My wife and I shared a tarte tatin, which was also excellent. Service was a little slow, probably because we arrived just after a group of about 10 or 12 people.More

The restaurant Blink is located in the surroundings of Brussels (Northern part), in the center of Strombeek-Bever. We took the lunch wich was really very good: salad with goat cheese as starter and then veal with Bordelaise sauce. Everything was really tasty. We took in...extra dessert (chocolate cake). The two lunches with water and desserts costed in total 68€ which is really reasonable. The restaurant was moreover very quiet and the waitress very professional.More

I went to this restaurant to have a nice dinner with friends. I was not disappointed about the general service and the good taste of the meals served. I took one fish meal that I am used to take in other restaurants and I appreciated...it quite much. My friends took meat and they were all cooked as asked. Only were the portions a tiny bit small for the price. However, the seats and table are really comfortable as well and it is not a noisy place. I recommend it for good traditional food from Belgium/France :-) ! Note: the Amuses-Bouches were gladly welcomed.More

I have been to the place twice, but it is always on top of my list to go for dinner when I have a babysitter. It is a nice and quite place. The atomosphe is just right for a couple to dinning together. I always...order their menu, the price is reasonable with good quality serving. The wine selection matches the dish well. The dinner time for a three course meal is about 2 hours, which is prefect for a night out.More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Blink

We discovered this restaurant for the first time in October 2015 and since returning at least once a month. Menu: You can eat a la carte or choose between 2 menus. Bith menus are changing +/- every month with seasonal ingredients and are real value...for money. - Menu all-in: 55€ aperitif & adapted wines included (2 types, 2 glasses of each). 1 very well dressed appetizer (for example: a small glas of delicate but well seasoned soup, with a little salmon tartar topped with a tasty fish-mousse), a starter, a main course and desert with coffee. - Menu of the Market: 4 courses (5th course optional) and with or without adapted wines (2 or 3 depending if you take the 5th course, 2 glasses each). 45€ up to 68€ depending on your choice of courses and with or without wine. Appetizer, starter, second starter, main course and choice between desert & cheese plate. Only appetizer is the same as "All-in menu", rest are totally other dishes. - A la carte: some plates are always available, topped with the dishes of the menus that you can order seperately Environment/decor: Cosy interior and ambient light, good leather chairs. Original decor, with metal touches. I recommend to have a look on the website as it's difficult to describe Welcome & service: Warm welcome and friendly service. All plates are announced so you know exactly what you are going to eat. I recommend this restaurant both for a romantic dinner for two, if you enjoy eating and discovering tastes - but also to eat with a group and share a unforgettable moment. Restaurant is usually quiet and calm, even when various tables are booked. Will definitely keep on going - and both menus of this month are magnificent!More

Nice restaurant near the centrum of Strombeek-Bever. The decoration is sober but beautiful. There is not a big choice of dishes but you always find something to your taste. The menu - which is regularly changed - is the best option. The service is excellent

We went for a second time to Blink. Our first time was 2 years ago. We remembered the excellent tasty gourmet food. However it looked now as if the cook played it save. The food was nice but not with waw. I was hoping for...a taste explosion instead I missed seasoning and dary food combinations. we took the market month menu with Kangeroo with the wine selection. The Kangeroo was perfectly cooked and the plate looked like a small painting. As for the wine we got only two kinds one red and one white not really a wine selection. we were missing a nice dessert wine to close of. In general a nice menu but missing a bit of punch.More

My husband, our youngest son and I went saturday to the restaurant Blink, for the first time for the 46th.birthday of our son. We were delighted by everything : the quality of the meals and the freshness of it. The elegance of the plates very...well decorated, the service who was kind and professionnal. The aperitives : CAVA first class and the white wine Sauterne (from la Loire) who was delicious and chilled very well. And the meat and the fish were super fresh and we were very very happy to have chosen this restaurant. It's a quite place, it's possible to eat in the garden when weather permits it. We shall go back because we were so enchanted.More

Nice market menu. The starter with veal sweetbread was far to salty for me. All the rest was good value for money.
