La Brouette


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

« La brouette » is the house of the corporation of the “graissiers”. It is Saint-Gilles, their patron saint, who watches over the destiny of this welcoming and rustic tavern. Open fire, ancient chandeliers, “patinés” floors and well-dressed waiters are some elements that will assure a good moment. The menu accommodates small hungers but big ones too. While making your choice you can savour a “pils” or a special beer”. This pleasant place allows you to “play tourist” from time to time to contemplate this unique Grand Place that Victor Hugo loved so much!

Great atmosphere, shoppes, cafes and beautiful architecture. You can easily spend a half-day wandering the streets and visiting the shoppes and cafes.

It’s hard to find a sit down cafe open early for breakfast. I have a thing against expensive hotel buffets when I just want a good egg dish and coffee. I’m sure their other food is good too. The interior is warm old wood paneling...More

Fairly busy restaurant, food good but nothing overly special.Slightly more expensive than other in the area but because of its location that is to be expected. A little slow to have order taken but once ordered drinks and food arrived in good time.

We went there for coffee and then for a business dinner. Food was ok but nothing really special. Service was nice. The decoration in the restaurant is great. Warm and cozy and travels you through time! Prices are reasonable.

Lovely place to sit for a coffee, which made it worth while... but awful service from the most unfriendly waiter I’ve ever met 😂

Just had some beers in the sun with mates. Absolutely stunning! Took a while to get our order but no worries, the company and place is great!

I’ve ordered a beef steak. Apparently they don’t know what “medium well” means. They brought me almost raw pieces of meat. I’ve complained. They took it away and cooled it a bit more, but it was still raw. From 3rd attempt they’ve made “well done”...More

If you’re coming for a good coffee to start your day, don’t. The location is great but the coffees are made by automatic machine and not barista. For €4.50 I expected better.

The view on the "Grande Place" from La Brouette is quite nice... but you don't need to stop at La Brouette to enjoy the view. In fact, you DO NOT need to stop by LA Brouette. The selection of beers is rather limited and we...More
