Really good value for money, Black rice and squid speciality dish don't miss it of your choice if on special board, good staff, good value for money and always seems to be busy and have a good atmosphere 👍

We were walking the streets of Brussels, not knowing where to go for our evening fodder, saw a sign for this place - all dishes €4 - and thought "Why not?" So pleased we did, as place is bustling, popular and offers an excellent range of tapas at reasonable prices - not always the case in the centre of Brussels.... More

We had a beautiful selection of tapas at 4€ each these were well priced. The menus are avaliable in multiple languages and the friendly wait staff all spoke different languages with ease. Good atmosphere, music and ambience. The food was stunning, great flavours and spicy dishes. Very enjoyable.

Good food, great service. Very pleasant ambience. Reasonably authentic tapas, but a good number of small plates with a more pan European feel. Staff were happy to give individual receipts to a group of 14, did it with a smile then gave us all a shot of limacello.

Dined here at the weekend. The service was good. The food was great, very tasty. Each tapas cost €4 which is very good value. Word of caution beware of stairs to toilets, it is very dangerous !!!

Everything was satisfying but nothing stood out as exceptional. 3 or 4 tapas are enough to fill you. Service is hectic, tables are crowded together the noise level is high and the prices are quite reasonable.

Some points to highlight: - Very nice service (except for the guy in charge, who could not handle the amount of clients) - Dark area, which could feel nicer if better decorated - Medium to low quality/taste of food - There was a queue to get in, which was not organized properly - The whole place was a bit messy...

Went walking for a restaurant and found this Tapas place. Great welcoming and helpful staff. Not busy when we arrived but boy after about half an hour the place was full with people waiting. Food arrived fairly quickly and was fantastic. Great flavours at a reasonable price. Would recommend it to anyone wanting something a little different. Great staff. Thank... More

The food was great and great value (€4 for each plate) but the service was pretty slow due to how relentless busy it was.
