Les Brassins is a Brussels must. Its full of athmosphere, its hidden in a residential street close to Audrey Hepburns birthplace. Great menu, quality service and terrific food. Just go there and enjoy.

Located in the heart of Ixelles, this brasserie provides a real Belgian atmosphere. The place is simply decorated, cosy and with as many seats as it can accommodate. Don't expect tablecloths on the tiny tables, which are next to each other; however the restaurant is quiet enough to allow a seamless conversation. When we arrived all tables were occupied, so...

This bistrot like restaurant seems to be a local favorite for a totally unknown reason. The food quality is less than average. I ordered some Sword fish, which was as dry as wall paper (poor fish...). The sauce that came with it was super creamy and thick and was to compensate for the badly cooked fish, I suppose. I avoided... More

The place is.cozy and the tables are close each other (like every belgium traditional restaurant), the food is great and the service is kind (that is rarely in Brussels). The americaine is not the traditional way to do, that is a pity, but the rest of the food is really good!

I went there with my friend, with no reservation and we found a table immediately. We took shrimp croquettes for starter, onglet steak with shallots and mussels with cream and garlic as main dishes. The starter was really delicious! I ordered the mussels, but i didn't quite enjoy them, cause i found them more soft/overcooked than the normal or perhaps... More

We had a late lunch in this restaurant and were practically alone in the restaurant. The food was very tasty and the staff was friendly. We sat inside as they have air con inside which is very welcome during these hot days. We will definitely come here again.

We booked a table there on a Saturday night. The place is small and tables are close to each other. Which is not a bad thing if you enjoy other people's proximity. The service is OK but you can tell staff are rushed and don't have much time to spend between running around. The food was brought quickly. We had... More

We really wanted to eat out on a Sunday evening as the hotel we were in had no restaurant. The hotel found this place which was on a quiet side street, and we would not have found it on our own. A friendly local place with Belgium fare. Food was pleasant and well prepared. Good croquettes and modules, we should... More
