FR: L'un des seul restaurants Belge de Milan, la nourriture et les boissons y sont très excellents. On y retrouve un caractère Belge tout en restant un peu Italien. Le personnel est très agréable. Gros point fort, le choix de bières au fût et en bouteilles. Je conseille vivement la Saison et la Bourgogne des Flandres. Je reviendrai encore et... More

This Belgian restaurant is definitely one of my very favs! The Staff is kind and friendly, the restaurant is lovely, it looks like the inside of a submarine; the food is awesome! Mussels are really really fresh and no matter which type you try, they all taste great! French fries accompany mussels, just like in Belgium; they are crispy and... More

I was very disappointed by Le Vent du Nord. I lived in Lille and know very well Belgium and thus, maybe had too high expectations. First the decor... The music, the waiters uniform, the light wood has nothing to do with belgian culture but way more with French Bretagne... From the outside, they announced up to 20 different quality of... More

This belgium restaurant represents fairly the food culture of that area. You can find belgian beer included some trappist (chimay and rochefort) as well as fries (fired two times like the originals) and mossles and stew. The beer stew is not like the original cause the meat quality is different. The km 0 has different flavour, so do not compare... More

I ended up having dinner in this restaurant one evening I was craving for "moules marinieres and fries". The place is well designed with a style very ocean inspired. The tables are quite close to each other though, and it's quite noisy, so I would recommend it for a night out with friends rather than a romantic dinner. The menu... More

Very many interesting Belgian beers, we liked each of the three drafts we tried. One of us tried café liegeois as dessert, much less interesting. Will need to come back for food. A bit remote, tucked away a few hundred meters from the Piazzale Lodi metro station, just underneath the old Porta Romana train station, now pending significant redevelopment.

If you've been to the famous Léon of Paris you'd probably adore this restaurant. The choices are "limited" but very tasty and the prices are reasonable for the Milan standard (14 euros for 1kg of mussles and fries). Dessert is as good, the staff is friendly and awsome atmosphere, definetely one of the best "foreign" cuisine restaurants in Milan

I'm not fond of mussels, so I probably haven't fully appreciated this restaurant, which is nicely decorated with seascapes and lighthouses. The atmosphere is nice but I've found it a bit too pricey for what I had: chips, salad Bruxelloise, a small lager and a dessert, for 25 euros.

Thank fiore9
