we were staying nearby and came across this restaurant which had great value two and three course meals. The staff were lovely and the food was nice too. To top it off we were greeted with free apperotivos and roses. During our meal a group of roller bladders, cyclists and djs passed and provided some on street entertainment. Recommend this... More

Visited .G-EA and had the mussels with 'home made' sauce. They were outstanding, as was the house white wine (a Chardonnay). Even the fries were good.

Cristos, our host, was very friendly and accommodating. Service was timely and glasses of wine filled without delay. Maria prepared excellent roasted sea bass and dorado... More

Just go to the end of this pedestrianized street that discover a hidden gem. It is here where you will find the best mussels in town. Christos (the owner) will greet you and treat you with the notion of the Greek philoxeny but this is not just the reason why you should try G-EA..so unpretentious good quality for a fair... More

A friend and I ate here one night. They have a special combos at varying price points. I had the Cheese Croquettes for a starter, though I would have been happy to order a couple more and make them a meal. They were very good. Then I got the spare ribs, and had every intention of getting dessert, however I... More

Stayed in Brussels for three nights mid June and ate here two of those nights, food is fantastic, cheese croquettes and beef carpaccio both highly recommended, steaks were also delicious. Complimentary aperitif and digestifs were a lovely touch and gladly received, service was great and highly entertaining. I would definitely return here in the future!

...we love to eat, that's well known! If you want to feat yourself this tourist restaurant is ok because of the price. You will receive an aperitif, much to sweet, from the house, a plate of food accompanied with a poor Greek wine (it is a pity because there are very fine greek wines) and at the end a kind... More
