This is a place with good mussels and a selection of Trappist beers. The locals also eat here which makes it an interesting place. Since it is open long hours, the waiters can be tired at times but they make up with being friendly.

Went in thinking it was a tourist trap--I was completely off. The mussels were fantastic, with a good selection of beers. Service was efficient. Good safe bet for a good lunch--surrounded by locals!

Great service also. We tried the chicon gratin. Very good and tasty. The croquettes duo was good but not outstanding. Recommended.

Good Belgian food. Local atmosphere and bistrot ambience. It was very busy on a Sunday. The mussels portions are huge... I wanted to try the Gofre, which looked amazing but I was too full!

This place is excellent for meeting with friends, especially a bit bigger group, up to five people. Service is excellent and the location is also good because it is close to metro and at the same time also close to center.

Very nice place, great staff. Tasty food. We took Irish stake and prawns with garlic, those were really good. One of good things was that kitchen was open after "average lunch time" that was 12.00-14.30. But on the expensive side.

Have visited a number of times both for lunch and evening meal . Was going to have a snack but as my companion said on my first visit I really enjoyed the rabbit stew , so I went for it and it was even better this time . She enjoyed the chicken in tarragon sauce .

We came up out of the Metro station in Ixelles hungry and just happen onto Le Trappiste. We enjoyed a very good lunch with very good service. I had an Irish steak and chips which was outstanding. Everyone else was very satisfied with what they ordered. They also have a good selection of Belgian beers. What more could you what... More

This restaurant is very central, the food is good but not exceptional, several traditional dishes such as the a Jambonneau in the oven with Moutarde sauce. Many other dishes are served. The French fries are good as usually in Belgium.
