So pleased to have found the restaurant following a recommendation from a local. Lucky to secure a table on a busy Saturday evening. The food was amazingly delicious - good sized portions and ethically sourced. The most delicious creme brûlée, knocking on the door of the best ever! Be aware - Cash Only

Came for dinner after the recommendations on TA. A good choice for a single traveler, didn't feel alone or "weird" in sitting there. Had the local carbonnades dish (beef cooked in chimay beer) which was excellent. The gazpacho might not be Belgian but was still refreshing and of course a great Leopold 7 beer. Good service and nice atmosphere. Enjoy

It's has been now the 4th time in three years that we have visited (La) Fin De Siecle and I think it's about time to write a review. Honestly, there is a reason why we have come here continuously over time. The place is great, charming and offers great authentic food to a reasonable price for Brussels' standards. This time...

Read reviews and, as this restaurant is on our (Yawn Sleep apartment) street, gave it a go on the first night. Was very impressed with the joyous, vivacious atmosphere and great choice of food. Chose the jamboneau (pigs shin) in mustard sauce. Cooked to perfection. Tons of salad and a baked potato. No room for pudding, but people around us... More

This is the place to go if you're looking for an authentic Belgian meal... not isn't just mussels. Great menu, amazing food and friendly staff willing to give suggestions and explain the local food.

Very nice place but it's always full. My recommendation is to go to have lunch or to have a very late dinner. Price is good regarding the quality. One of the best carbonnades that I ever tried. Don't miss the tiramisu!

I only had few beers there, the food looked delicious though. The prices are a bit higher than in a regular Brussels's bar, but it's a place located very near one of my favourite squares.

You will walk through four different stories of art from the 19th Century until you get to the Art Nouveau collection. So many pieces from Galle, and the last piece, of course, is the gilded bronze bust by Mucha.

We waited for about 10 minutes until we could take a seat outside which is totally fine given the fact that we didn't make a reservation. The waitresses were very nice and the service was quick. I ordered my entrecôte (~18€) medium-rare. Unfortunately it came well done. The side dishes were an oven potato and a salad that really wasn't... More
