A restaurant which had built its reputation on a contender to a TV reality show (Alexandre Dyonisos) who left the place (for personal reasons ?). I was probably there at the wrong time but nothing impressive, expensive and no parking possibilities. As Michelin says "Merits a large detour", but in this case.. to avoid it !

A rather small restaurant in the centre of Brussels, decorated in a modern and elegant style. My third visit and on this occasion my celebratory invitation for a group of eight friends, who all took the same tasting menu. Modern creative cuisine all with an explosion of flavours. All eight declared "a rare gastronomic pleasure". Efficient professional service by the... More

it is indeed a very nice restaurant but...not worth the price. There is no choice of dishes, so you take that risk to begin with. Also I really miss not be able to choose from a menu: that is one of the fun parts of going to a restaurant. Both degustations were very similar forms of cream cheese. The (excellent)... More

Nice bakery/pastry. Had the best and biggest éclair in my life! Very cosy and good sorts. It's a Belgian franchise, so I can at least recommend the one I've been at Brusselstraat, Leuven, Belgium. Great. Also, easy access to physically impaired people, is definitely a plus.

Cosy setting, good service, delicious and surprising food. Unfortunately they serve tap water in bottles and charge 5 euro for this. A top restaurant should have mineral water, or give tapwater for free.

Two Ladies make this restaurant a MUST!!! Anca Petrescu welcomes you with her soft and warm smile and guides you to accompagny your dishes with the best wines. Isabelle Arpin serves the most elegant dishes worth a Michelin star! Gault& Millau just rated the restaurant : 16/20!!!

We googled top restaurants in Brussels as we were looking for a nice place to eat for our honeymoon. We arrived and was a bit taken back by the selected menu as it contained some foods we didn't eat. Everything that we ate was perfectly cooked and seasoned. It was a delicious meal to say the least. Highly recommend.

It is a bit pricy but you would not get disappointed. Each dish is presented in a perfect way and the taste is equally good. I am truly surprised by the boer carpaccio with mushroom ice-cream and am certainly impressed by the tenderness of the beef. Pictures can help you understand a bit but you should go and taste it!

We only just learned about this restaurant and went as all other top-restaurants were fully booked. We were a bit nervous due to some of the reviews and the fact that they lost their michelin star. But boy we were in for a treat, absolutely amazing food with very clever combinations and an attention to detail that you don't often... More

A delightful gastronomic discovery in the heart of the city. Fun experience with the chef guiding you through a very short menu and the wines are suggested to accompany the dishes (short menus are the trend, they ensure top quality produce and freshness, go along with the chef: she knows). Not cheap but high-end cuisine and wines. Booking obligatory, food... More
