We stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night and had a wonderful time. The restaurant has a distinctly local feel, and the French menus help keep it that way - this is not a tourist trap! The service is efficient and polite, but they leave you be. Food was absolutely delicious, with a good range of mains and deserts.... More

We had a magnificent Tartare de thon et avocat and Brochette de coquilles Saint Jacques grillées for starters. For main Filet de bar à la plancha, Steak de thon and Ragoût de coquilles Saint-Jacques. I can't decide which was the best. The place was rather noisy, the tables were close to each other and rather small. But I'll definitely go... More

This place is close to my office and a trusty haunt for lunchtime meetings. The menu is Belgian / Brussels classics. I had sea bass and my colleagues an onglet of beef. Good service and the cosy vibe of a traditional Brussels brasserie. It's not cheap but you won't be disappointed.

We were recommended this restaurant by a local and it did not disappoint. Lovely atmosphere as soon as you walk in, with fantastic service from start to finish and beautiful food.

Excellently located in the fabulous Princes' Gallery (part of the St-Hubertus or Royal Galleries) in the center of Brussels, just a short walk away from the Grand Place/Grote Markt (the central market square - UNESCO world heritage!), this old-timer (in business since several decades) iconic restaurant (because of its location, style and good food) is a place I like to...

This "brasserie" used to be one of the "place to be" in Brussels some years ago. Apparently this is not anymore the case and clients are considered as milk cows while waiters and owner believe they offer enough with giving you a place for four people while you are a party of five. Probably better to try other "restaurants" in... More

The worse place for service and I warmly discourage anyone to go. Overpriced for just normal food and the disrespectful attitude of waiters makes the rest. If you value nice, friendly service, beyond the quality of food, go elsewhere.

My first visit here. The food is good quality. Liked the tempura prawn starter but less impressed with the faisan. Nothing wrong with it but wasn't so interesting. The prices are on the high side €30+ an entree. Liked the food, service was OK. Wouldn't rush back as there are plenty of alternatives at this level.

This place was recommended to us by locals for great food and that we had. The only problem was that none of us spoke or can read French. The waiter was no help and luckily with the help of smartphones we finally were able to order. But like I said earlier the food we got was great. The Ambiente was... More

Having read the reviews on this page I was perhaps over optimistic about this restaurant. We had an early booking 7pm and were put at a very cramped table upstairs. The restaurant was close to empty at this stage and service was prompt and pleasant. I had the seafood plate, my colleagues cod and tuna respectively. The food was good... More
