This place has just the best food I tried in Brussels! With a very nice decoration, you will feel as if you were in your own (fancy) house for eating. The most impressive was the service held by Munia, she is just the most charismatic person in town! I highly recommend this place for eating or even for just some... More

We had a delicious dinner, such yummy food! We enjoyed sitting outside a not so busy street on a nice night in Brussels. It was a great location. However, the service was quite sassy and quite poor.

Really enjoyed all the food, nice range on the menu so plenty to choose from!! Wine was also good, only downside was the service, she looked bored! Also like she was judging everyone who came inside. You get better service in ya local weatherspoons!!

Had a good tomato soup here and would recommend this place at least for that. The chicken was not all that, but I think it was OK.

Without a doubt one of the better places for either dinner or lunch at the heart of our wonderful capital of Belgium and Europe. Dishes are prepared perfectly without to much waiting time, the staff is even better! I've had the honor to visit this place multiple times already, and the way you are being taken cared of as a...

Undoubtably one of the must-eat places in the centre of Brussels. Had the pleasure of trying different dishes already, and I can honestly say that not a single one was of less quality. Simply delicious! Brought to you by a hardworking and friendly staff, passionate and cheerful. If you've not been here before you leave the city, you can't really... More

After having such bad food in Brussels since we arrived, it made my day after stumbling upon Publico by accident. I ordered the Publico raviolli with meat and it was absolutely divine! My partner commented that the beer was great. The waitress was very friendly and recommended the homemade chocolate lava cake which was sooo yum! Thanks for making my... More
