This restaurant is right in the centre of the Grand Place. Our tour group had the farewell supper here. The food was quite good. Loved the cheese croquettes. The beef in beer (Charbonnade a l'affligem) and the Bruxxels waffle were delicious. Service was fine. We had a private dining room and had a great time.

On a sunny day, the al fresco area of La Chaloupe d’Or is a nice place to meet up with friends. We never tire of the unique view on the stunning Grand-Place! Like elsewhere in the world, prices in this historic brasserie are a bit higher than in your average street corner café. We paid 3,9€ for a coffee, 5€... More

Wanted a snack and a beer and to enjoy the ambience in the Grand Place. Wait staff just ignored us, even after we caught their eye and indicated politely we wanted to order. So we left. Lots of other places to go. Who needs that kind of rudeness from a restaurant.

Not many restaurants can offer this view when we dined in the 3rd Floor dining room overlooking the square. Our tour group had our end of the trip farewell dinner there. The food and location was good but the service was not up to scratch. I was surprised that they allowed me to use their restaurant staff elevator to help... More

The food (boeuf carbonnade and lapin à la kriek) was very good. The staff were obnoxious. Atrocious service. We ordered food and drinks. When we asked for a jug of water (carafe d'eau) with our meal, the waiter loudly and rudely refused us, saying that this was Belgium and no restaurant served carafe d'eau in Belgium. My partner wanted to... More

Very nice little bar in the heart of Grand Place. Great views in the early evening as the sun sets but the beer is priced accordingly.

The best location at the Grand Place. Sun, a lot of sun what is nice. Quite slow service - compensated by good beer and a nice view. The bill under 15€ cash only. Still compensated by the view. The food smells good - did not try.

Very nice surrounding with many tourists , in despite of the horror attacs , but one very negative point is the fact that every customer has to pay to use the toilets ... and this is guarded by a very unpolite older lady who has no clou about customer service ! This is the perfect way to avoid that tourists... More
