Second time Bruxelles so also again diner at Bonsoir Clara. Good taste, friendly environment in a wonderful setting which we like. The prices are in good relation to the quality of the food and we tried other dishes. So far we come back again.

DON’T GO THERE!!!!! 😱🙄 I was there with an important group of people from my home country. They were not served properly. The lady in charge was extremely rude and treating her staff badly. The wonderful Danish waitress was shouted at although she was the...best, most efficient and kindest waitress in the whole place. I have never experienced this kind of abuse in a restaurant ever…. I will not ever go there again and I never recommend anyone else to go there 😡More

After a lot of research for restaurants in Bruxelles we finally discovered this charming place: We loved both the menu, the vibe, the interior design with a long wooden bench, beautiful tiles and design elements. We had a fantastic dinner at Bonsoir Clara, both our...starter and mains were a delight. We would love to return very soon!More

I went for New Year's eve's dinner which was 95 euro per person without drinks. The food was hands-down the worst meal I have ever had. The venison was probably chicken or at best turkey, every part of the meal was terrible, even the French...fries were horrible. The service was a joke. The place was 2/3 empty. It was a really horrific experience, for which I had to pay 50% up front to 'keep my spot' (even though the place was empty). I have never ever had such a horrible restaurant experience anywhere in the world.More

I've been there for a New Year evening and got the New Year menu. Very bad experience and very expensive one for what we got : - The food was OK but definitely not the level of a gastro (and poor in quantity for what...you pay) (95€/pers) Some dishes were really not nice to eat. - We had to ask 4 times our bottle of wine and didn't have it when we received our starters. And they didn't have most of wines they had in their menu. - The music was from Youtube, with adverts every 5min .... (quite annoying) - There were 2 fights between customers and the restaurant's owner the same evening.. People not happy of their experience too and who wanted a compensation.More

The experience started rather good. Great entre (pâté) while the vegetarian aubergine cannelloni was rather greasy. Service was also friendly until we wanted to pay with two cards. As often In Belgium, there was a card issue and the waiter claimed it was not possible...to pay with two cards unless we told it in advance. I will choose a resto with a more modern approach next time.More

We arrived as a large group on a Wednesday evening and 2 main course were no available anymore. The service was slow to a point I have never seen. The owner was not very apologetic about it ( we had reserved so she knew we...were coming !!! ) The food was poorly presented and not very good simply put ( from duck to ravioli scampi ) Honestly a terrible experience and would never go back.More

We were a party of three and the bill came to 120€. It is overpriced for what it is and service is slow. Staff were quite nice in general, however we asked the old lady (who I assume is the manager) for some tap water...and she refused to provide it and got incredibly defensive about it too. This is such a backwards thing to have in Belgium in the 21st century. So yes, you gained a few extra euros. Congratulations. Here is your one-star review.More

Nice relaxing ambiance with exposed brick high ceilings. Average service. The salmon appetizer was very good and nicely plated. The eggplant cannelloni with stuffed cheese was average to good. My partner had the sole which had too many bones and was a bit oily. Meh

Needed to wait a lot for food, for the bill. Also it was very pricey and got the impression that it was a scam. The waitress was rude and pretty much threw the bread on the table. I don’t recommend this place for this money...you should get 4 times better serviceMore

Hadn’t been here in years. The last time I went it was pretentious but the food was ok. This time it was dreadful. I had the scampi ravioli. 4 prawn dumplings in a thin tasteless broth. It was not ravioli. The vegetables were undercooked. Service...was slow. Staff disinterested.More

The food was quite good but we had to wait one hour and a half before being served. An entire table of 5 people left because they were no served after one hour waiting. The waitress told us that there was a problem in the...kitchen but now that I read the other reviews, it seems to me that they have the same Issue over and over again .More

The ambiance is very well thought off. The rough brick walls, high ceiling, open kitchen everything contributes to a relax yet elegant atmosphere. The food was delicious too. The salmon starter with wasabi was not to heavy on the stomach. The same applies to the...apple tartan dessert. Lovely combination of flavors in the dishes. Very good choice when in Bruxelles.More

Super disappointing. We booked for 8pm and arrived on time. No one came to the door to take us to the table. We had to walk to the till to ask about our reservation. They just pointed towards the bar. We waited for 30 minutes!!...We noticed there was only ONE waitress for the whole restaurant!! Eventually, the waitress took us to the table with no apology for the wait. Once seated, it then took 30 mins to be asked about drinks. The waitress came to the table either side of us and took their orders! We were shocked! She just ignored us completely. We decided to get up and leave - we don't think the waitress even noticed me left.More

I have tried many different restaurants in Brussels and there are many really good ones. I have been to Bonsoir Clara three times and everytime I enjoy very good food and great service. The people serving are very nice in a natural and sincere way....The service, the food, the environment and the price level make Bonsoir Clara to my favourite restaurant in Brussels.More
