Butcher is literally a butcher that also serves meat. I had an excellent aged steak that was simply great. Unfortunately the spare ribs were really not that good. For a meat based restaurant the ribs cannot be dry. Unfortunately that's what we got. The saving...grace was the dry aged meat that was excellent. The fries aren't bad but aren't brilliant either. Overall ok food, but did expect it to be better.More

Rating mainly due to the 20 minutes waiting time before the waiter took our order while we were ready after 5. We were going to the movies afterwards; because of those 20 minutes we went for burgers instead of the “Menu Suggestion” which was an...appealing 3-course. Quite weird though for a restaurant called “Butcher” to also have fish and seafood on the menu, but I think the place changed owner since its opening. For the rest, we had a good meal, which is the most important at the end.More

Really noisy, staff not very friendly, food not really that bad but cold. The back side of the restaurant near the glass wall is not the best place to eat as it's rather chilly.

If you want to visit a decent restaurant for great meat come here. I know it’s not in central Brussels, but that’s no excuse not to try this place if you are in town. The service was great all night long. Our wine was refilled...regularly and the staff are very friendly (despite it taking us a long time to decide what cut of meat we wanted). When we got to the restaurant there were no free tables, but we were made to feel really welcome until a space cleared up - my advice, book a table before hand because there is high demand here. There is an open kitchen and so you can see the chefs hard at work. The place is well decorated too. The food is great. We were a little disappointed that not every cut of meat was available as listed on the menu, but what we ordered was wonderful. I had a nicely cooked Spanish steak (they know what they are doing). I would recommend a visit! I will come again to try more local cuts of meat. Vegetarians stay away...More

We had rare steak plates. The cooking time was perfect. There was a professional and gentil waiter. The price is average and fair.

You can feel that all the personnel loves and knows what they are doing! It was my first time at this restaurant and certainly will not be last. Looking forward enjoying it again soon. Next time with photos. The quality of the meat was outstanding....Great selection of drinks!More

The Butcher is a steakhouse that has predictably good beef....and a good selection of drinks. With several visits for me, however, the service to take an initial drink order, etc., has been extremely slow. Steaks are prepared well, but I would not order the steak...side sauces again, as they were watery and not flavorful. Also, be aware if you ask for a anything special (like salad dressing on the side), as it has not been provided on any of my visits. If you have all the time in the world to wait....and you don't have off-menu needs, then it's the place to go.More

Ordered steak Entrecôte Gallega cooked medium. But came in well done and quite rubbery. A disappointment but marginally relieved by wonderfully cooked fries/chips. Wine list is average and we went for the Bordeaux. Ambience is fast food like and you have a clear view of...the kitchen. A bit pricey for its quality and basically you go here for lack of other choices in the area.More

We have been to this restaurant a few times and always had a good time. The burgers are good, especially the vegan one. They also have good sandwiches for lunch. Would recommend!

Visited spur of the moment on the back of an excursion to Hergé Museum, ordered a kids burger, cheese burger, and Caesar salad, ended up being charged for 3 adults meals but given we were English I just assumed it was us that ordered it...wrong, not sure we did, however let’s give them the benefit of the doubt, the burgers were very peppery, this wasn’t the sauce but the actual burgers. After eating half both my son and I had to stop as the peppery after taste was becoming too much. The chicken Caesar salad my wife ordered was very dry, over cooked, cold chicken, I’m pretty sure it was meant to be warmed out but not sure they got round to it. Long story short, save your money and go to a fast food restaurant, you may be disappointed with the fast food restaurant’s food but you will have saved yourself €70 and not missed anything.More

Nice little restaurant with good value for money. Thursday night small concerts with artists confirmed which brings a great atmosphere. This is not Best food but for the price, everything is correct.

We have been here about 7 times over the last few months... The first 3 times were very good although the place is very loud...Very nice meat, service top! And then... it shifted... the service now is bad, long waitingtimes, not friendly.. looking around ,...not friendly to anyone, as if they dont want to work there. The meat often undercooked, ... i mean I love my meat rosé or saignant, but its just raw... often wrong orders as well, and again, extremely loud. The kitchen is so loud its disturbing!! Anyways, its a sad story because we loved the place but We gave enough chances now... :(More

I usually get sandwiches, once I ordered a Tartare (not good enough) And the different sandwiches you can get are actually quite nice. But sometimes they make them in advance so you'll recieve your baguette not enough crustillante
