In the Grand Place, this is a great watering hole. Moules, omelettes, burgers, french local fare and Leffe. What more could you want? Friendly helpful staff and an ambient feel.

Stopped here with my elderly father after visiting the war graves. Open from 11-11 the service was good and they were able to do a ham and cheese omelette for my dad. I tried the Welsh Royal which was a bit like Welsh rarebit with an egg and frankfurter on the top. Dame Blanche was tasty

Stopped here for a quick beer and food but decide just on the beer. Waitress was very friendly and device was quick and effective, food looked fairly basic.

As part of our France tour, there were 10 of us that dined at Brussel's café during our evening stopover in Arras. It's a fairly large restaurant with a terrace located in view of the Grand Place. A few in our group were already familiar with this restaurant, and made some recommendations on what was considered a signature dish. Escargots,... More

We stopped in for lunch after a morning visiting Vimy. The Brussels Cafe in in one of the old Flemish squares in the town centre. The food was great. We had local dishes and tasty rudy beer. The food was done perfectly. It was served quickly and cheerfully. The atmosphere inside the cafe is casual and welcoming. The whole experience... More

Wandered past here while having a look around the Grand Place in Arras on Sunday. Weather was nice an the place was packed including all the outside seating and seemed to consist of plenty of locals so seemed a good bet. It turned out to be so a great spot for a burger and some salad in the sunshine. Service... More

We had the provincial specialty of the house, braised beef, Turkey in cheese sauce and welsh ( welsh cheese and ham in pot). Very different to what we thought, but delicious. Sometimes it pays to go with something unknown. Staff were very good and with our limited French and their English we managed to have a lovely meal and drinks.... More

Reasonably priced and large helpings at this "standard" brasserie. Quick and friendly service. Try the hamburger with this northern French cheese and the mussels were good too. They had a Rose Cidre which was very good too.

We picked Brussels when we saw several groups of office workers head in for lunch, which is always a good sign. We were seated in a semi private circular alcove near the bar from where we could see the customers coming and going. We ordered the "menu gourmand" which is a choice of one of several dishes of the day... More
