Just off the Grote Markt (North east corner) is Les Chapeliers (Hat factory) behind a wooden facade is a warm space that welcomes you. Hats (old fashioned bowlers and top hats) hang from the ceiling of this establishment which was once, indeed, a hat factory....More

I had only 2 nights in Brussels so I spend it mostly in the old part of town; there you can find "The Chapeliers". I decided to eat in this restaurant because of the atmosphere, without researching it first. Big mistake. The service was awful,...More
