This was not the first choice restaurant but I think I made a great choice. Made the booking via our hotel. We arrived and the waiter seemed a little stern but I think this was due to the language difference. But as soon as the food started to come we were on to a winner. Each course was superb and...

It was our second visit here, the interior is really nice. You should definitely go for the XL menu! The food was great, but some dishes are way better than others. For example, we really enjoyed the oyster veal tartare but the final desert (dark chocolate fondant) was tasty but expected something more exciting/surprising. The only minus to this place... More

Visited La Buvette twice in the last week just to ensure that the incredible experience of the first visit was not a happy accident. And it wasn't. The kitchen offers - at a great value for money rate – two set menus at either 7 or 9 courses. Excellent portioned - just enough to enjoy the taste and still be... More

This is one of the best meals we've enjoyed in a while. A really interesting menu, with lots of great, and often unexpected, flavour combinations, which was amazing value for money. We were genuinely excited to see what came next during the 9 course tasting menu we had, and enjoyed the warm service, and novel surroundings (the restaurant is a... More

Recommended by one of our kids, we decided to try this place.When seen from the outside, one could not guess that the restaurant is actually not that small.The interior has kept his original features and charm(although it was a butcher..). Staff was very friendly, and multilingual as was our party. Kitchen staff is proud of their food as they bring... More

My second visit to La Buvette made me change my mind about La Buvette: an authentic interior - an old butcher, I think, with nice tiles - and an original menu comprising of several orginal yet genuinely tasty dishes. A good place for a relaxing dinner, away from the bustle yet in the center of trending Sint-Gilles

The title says it all...How to chase away regular customers... We called and reserved a table for 2 and confirmed we wanted a table on the ground floor, that was no problem. We drove across town, spent 15 minutes looking for a parking spot and arrived 10 minutes late...no more tables on the ground floor....they had prepared specially for us... More

I came here for a christmas lunch with my colleagues. We all had the Menu L, which consists of 2 starters, main course and dessert. Both starters were good, but the main course was really great! The Guinea Fowl was so tender, loved it! I liked the dessert as well as it was not that sweet: made of green tea,... More

We reserved well in advance and arrived in time so we could choose our table. Staff suggested the high table at the entrance as the best table in the restaurant which is in the beautiful main room (former art deco butcher shop), which you see on most of their pictures. There is also a less impressive upstairs room. We took... More

Beautiful old house in St Gilles. Delicious 9 course meal. Fixed menu at €49 of €59 depending on number of courses. Service: friendly, smiley, relaxed, very well trained. Music: interesting. I loved the combination of haute cuisine, independent choice of music (Beatles, Doctor Who, ...) (very discreet), St Gilles and 30s architecture. A place with a lot of soul and... More
