Take the meat, don't be distracted, and you will be rewarded! Orgasmic onglet, good desserts. Service is not always at the level of food

The Schievelavabo behind St Michel has a charming interior and a nice terrace with sun longer than the neighboring bistros, less noise as well. The menu is simple, the best dishes are often the specials (pasta variations, some burgers and large salads). Be careful to specify how you want the meat in the burgers as well; several times it has... More

Avoid this place in Brussels. Me and my friends ordered a macaroni gratini, burger XS and a couple of lasagna vegetariana. The food isn't tasty, was very very poor. Thr servive was good bud we paid our lunch for a disgusting food :-(

We have eaten serveral times in Schievelavabo and, in general, the food is good: meatballs, ribs, salads, jamboneau. The only dish I did not like it was the burger. The service is no more than OK. If you do not ask too many questions, the waiters will treat you fine... but if you ask too many things... (trying to be... More

Mediocre food, bad service, these people know how to send off clients. We went twice, same story. It's a pitty that this resto is in the neighborhood and there's not much choice around.

I've been to to the one at Altitude 100 and the one at Calevoet. Both were great experiences. I personally found the service in both places to be excellent and very friendly. The staff have a lot of tables to serve and as always.. if you give a smile, you get one back. The food is great for the price.... More

We got what we asked for, and in time to complete the meeting in about an hour or so, which is not so easy in Brussels. The food was well served and the waitress quite friendly.

Good location and atmosphere but food is average and service is unpleasant. My steak was very badly cooked

To start off, we had a nice mojito. It actually is one of the better ones I had in my life to be honest, but you need to have some time to wait for it.... the waiters are pretty slow, perhaps also since it's a busy resto. Then for the food, I had ordered the Burger XXL... that was actually... More
