This quiet restaurant is just about 100 metres from the Grand Place, centre of Brussels' tourist activity. The food is quite exquisite and not the standard bland international concoction trying to suit everybody. It uses traditional Belgian food to give a very high level cuisine at no higher cost.

Really enjoyed the food here. The moules croquettes starter with the sauce was one of the best things I have tasted in ages. The atmosphere was very relaxing. Suggest you avoid the house wine & slightly upgrade whether red, white or rose. Would highly recommend this non chain restaurant. Better than average & had locals in there but the people... More

It was nice visiting this restaurant on Saturday and enjoying some traditional Belgian dishes. Staff were friendly and the food was nice. Well priced for what you get.

Due to circumstances it took me a while to get back to ABrussels. It felt like home. Mark changes his card every month - I recommend you to send your e-mail to put you on the mailing list so you can have the menu of the month in your mailbox. What surprises me also, Mark has also a typical belgian... More

Welcome & friendliness when you arrive. You immediately get drinks. I love the menu which is not very big, but the "belgian" food makes it really worth a visit. It certainly has a very nice price/quality ration. The big turn off came at the end when we wanted to have one last drink (Saturday night !) at 10:55. It's possible... More

My friends and I came across this place by accident last night. It's a stone's throw from the gran place so we weren't expecting much past the usual tourist fare. How wrong we were!! Abrussel is fantastic! It's cosy, small and you can see the chef/owner working away in the kitchen. The food was beautiful. Great starters and we had... More

The food was really gorgeous. Lovely staff and atmosphere. Very reasonably priced. I was with a group of four people, and everybody enjoyed their food. A great night!

This place is fantastic! Our party arrived late and was waited on by the chef himself, who was sooo nice! We had a vegetarian dish of lentils and curry tofu which was amazing, and a fish dish with potato pancake and capers. Really delish. Highly recommend!

This restaurant was a disappointment over the entire line. We had starter and main course and had to go order a burger afterwards. Also if you look at the 5star reviews it is remarkable how many people there are with only 1review in their entire tripadvisor history. Also the reactions on bad reviews shows that they cannot handle feedback. Food... More

On the recommendation from our B&B, we headed to Abrussel. The food was terrific and everything we expected from a trendy but not touristy restaurant in Brussels.
