La Médina is a really great Moroccan restaurant... the decor and presentation were excellent. However, since this is Belgium, they hold back a little on the rich Moroccan spices. We will be back.

Friendly and welcoming staff, even though it was a busy evening. The tajine that we had was very tasty and quite a big portion. We had started by sharing the big platter, which was too much for us in the end (it would have been...nice if it was not all fried).More

The dishes were delicious and the services and the waiters very polite and friendly. We barely found a table, because most of them were already booked, so my advice is to call for a reservation before going here.

Tajine with lamb is good, the meat probably a little bit overcooked, but it’s difficult with this technique. Cous cous good but not excellent, local wines acceptable, entrees not so specials. Overall a good place, very clean, to spend a dinner in Bruxelles. Quality/Price ratio...very good. Around 25€ pp for a complete dinner. 1/2 point more for the tea and the courtesy of the staff. We will come back probably!More

Was here a year ago, and reviewed La Medina then. The food and service have not changed, and that is a good thing. The meal was delicious, the service was attentive and friendly. Hope to write this review again, one year from now.

We hadn't been at La Medina for a long time and remembered it rather fondly. We were made welcome and have no complaint about service. The food, however, was really underwhelming. The bricks, outside of the egg or tuna depending of the type, were stuffed...with onion, some of it barely cooked through. The main dishes were generous but definitely lacking in flavor. No seasoning whatsoever on the lamb or chicken (but good meat) and the broth was quite bland. The bright Moroccan flavors were missing.More

The setting is attractive, the service attentive, and the food (couscous w/merguez sausage, couscous w/lamb en brochette, tajine w/ chicken and lemon) pleased the three of us. Prices are very reasonable. The house red wine was quite OK.

We went there on an evening with a group of locals. The group booked before and we had an area reserved for us. Anyway booking in advance wasn't necessary, there was almost no one else that evening, it was on a weekday though. But even...on weekdays restaurants in Brussels are quite full. The decoration of the interior is quite old fashion. The menu has the traditional dishes and specialities of Morocco, such as couscous, grilled meat and tajine... The portions were large. The taste average to weak. The service just bad. It seemed we were a bit too much... so I'll go never again.More

We mostly go there as the food is Nice, but dont expect Some customer service there. They bearly give you a smile. Today we called For a take away order, we ordered 3 tajines and requested Some extra Bread For the 3 tajines. OMG what...did we asked?? It was an impossible request we made, we also told them that they can charge extra money for the extra piece of bread but no , Madame this is not a bakery was their answer to us. Today was the last time that I even called them. I friendly requested but NO . So I cancelled my order and will never go or order there anymore. The problem is people go there for the food and these people are not friendly at all!! when you go the extra miles for your client they will continue to come but this behaviour you will only loose clients!! it's free to be nice and it's a Win Win for both but no they don't get this! So bye bye La medina !!! We will never come back or order at your restaurant!More

The food is delicious and the portions are generous. The decor on the inside is really lovely. I love the lemon chicken tagine. Very reasonably priced.
