“Delicious gnocchi, prompt service”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

A lovely atmosphere in this place, just off the main square near Bourse Station. There was a constant stream of guests but most seemed to be walk-ins rather than reserved or regular guests. The food was delicious and plentiful.

“lovely evening”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We enjoyed a lovely dinner here with free olives and bread to start, then excellent steak and chips with mushroom sauce (archiduc) and the duck, along with a very nice bottle of malbec for 24€. The dessert of tartetin was nice, but not all it could be. The service was excellent, the ambiance pleasant. We will eat here again next time we are in Brussels.

“Sort out your carpaccio please”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

This is definitely the hip part of town. A considerable contrast to the rather rundown metro/tram system. The closest metro is Bourse which was nicely lit up for the holiday season. The place is small so book in advance. Our waiter was well built and very entertaining. He did a very good job at catering to our table. The only disappointment of the night was that the carpaccio wasn't the REAL carpaccio we have grown to love. It was rather rectangular pieces of ham. The stew made up for the failed started. The salads were a popular choice and perhaps with hindsight we would've gone for one of these. 4/5 if you served real carpaccio you would've gotten a 5/5

“Fantastic! Warm, friendly, modern great food great service!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across Publico and we were so glad we did! The service was fantastic, friendly, fast and non obtrusive! The food was fantastic; fresh, great flavours and cooked to perfection. We feel lucky to have found it and will be recommending to all of our friends! We had the beef stew, but every meal that came out looked great! Thanks for a great night!

“Excellent neighborhood restaurant/bar”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

Went to Publico after it was recommended by our hotel. It turned out to be a highlight of our visit to Brussels. Excellent food, excellent service from Francois, and a very comfortable and cozy atmosphere.
