On our way to a restaurant we found on TripAdvisor this guy stopped us. He promised us a really good meal for €12,5. So we fell for his charming words and got inside. As Belgians we know how this food is normally served and it was nothing like it. We can live with that as it was for a low... More

If you're reading this, it most likely means you fell into their trap as well. These con artists have the perfect location to bombard unsuspecting tourists who don't have wifi to check the reviews. You probably get the gist from the other reviews, but basically the doorman persuaded us in with the promise of free drinks and authentic Belgian food.... More

Poor service. Very disappointed in the unprofessional manner the wait staff treated us with and in the fact that our food took 50 minutes to get to us.

One of this hundreds of restaurants in central Brussels serving mules frites. They all have a very friendly guy outside catching you and leading you through the door. After that all service stops. Not priceworth at all.

If you like bad service and muddy mussels, then this is the place for you! Forget about food hygiene, have a cheap and nasty meal here!

Be warned - you DO NOT want to go to this place. This place has a staff outside trying to get would-be customers into the restaurant. Tactics include "we have seafood, low price, fresh mussels, cheap drinks, and fire to keep you warm" The display outside shows cheap dishes including 8 euro mussels and 4 euro beer. Once you get...

They hustle you in say they will provide you with drinks. The food is over priced for the quality given. We ordered one paella with no lobster (22€) but they tried to slip in half a lobster in our meal which could have cost us 44€. They got mad when we caught them on their scam bait and switch. They...

We had a great meal here. Got a free drink on arrival and staff made us feel very welcome and helped us make extra room around our table for our buggy. The set meal was great value, decent portions and tasty. Local house wine was great.
