This place is typical brasserie bruxellois,with traditional vol-au-vent or croquettes, although what makes it different from many others: it is a combination of fast service and non pretencious but very tasty meals. This restaurant has no Michelin stars so no need to expect exquisite service and cuisine "haute-couture" when you go to a brasserie like this. However, i think everyone can find something interesting for oneself (fish,meat,veggie). The desserts although are in general quite simple but still enjoyable.
Besides, an interesting fact about this place is: the waiters can be sometimes even too fast, meaning that you need to make a sign and slow them a bit down so you could spend a couple of hours by admiring decoration of the room (somewhat like art nouveau, although i cannot say exactly, sorry, but what matters is that it is just beautiful), other customers or only your beloved, that's up to you:)
The dinner for two could be a bit pricey if you take a la carte, but you can find a good variety in a choice of the fixed menus as well. We went there twice as a couple and another time with other friends (7per), and everytime we were not disappointed!

Les Brigittines is a quality meal guaranteed each visit! The chef uses fresh local produce and makes typical Belgian dishes perfectly spiced! I will go again and again!! Not too pricy either. Great aperitif beers! ;-)

The art deco is really the whole story. It seems a bit of a step back in time.
The food was good - not outstanding, but certainly very good.
The menu can be a bit limited, so you might only find a couple things you like (e.g. calves brain is not my thing.) But I had a simple grilled fish (cod) with mushrooms that was delicious - but for 32 Euros, the pricing is steep (I'd expect a fish dish like this to be 18-24 euros, really.)
still, a unique and fun experience

Very average really, certainly for the price it does not warrant the 5 start reviews by so many.
Starter of pig trotters was not brilliant, but then again i've not had it enough to warrant a detailed criteria. The main of veal cheek was well cooked, but really for 24euros, i expect more finesse about the plate.

My colleague had the steak tartar which was good. Service very average,and the wine recommendation for a 35euro bottle was weak. I'm sure there are much better places to spend you time in Brussels that this outdated cuisine.

I am from here originally and every time I come back, I have to go to this place. It is delicious food, great decor, nice service and a classic. This is the place where you will find real belgian gourmet cuisine. Not the touristy version of it (a hint: if there is a picture of a plate in the window of a restaurant, don t go there). So, try the shrimp croquette, and have a good time.
