“Tourist trap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2010

Don't go there - all of the most restaurants in the street are a tourist trap
They propose cheap menu outside but when you stay inside they try to sale
another menu at very high prices !

“Worst and rip-off restaurant ever. Don't go”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2010

It was nice day and we were showing the city to our very respected clients, we were planning to go to another restaurant, but got too hungry and decided to look for something at the famous Rue de Bouches. i think our mood was too good to notice that the restaurants (yes, same staff service two restaurants located opposite to each other - Le Moulin and L'Arlequin) were те quite busy, though at 4pm it's ok. But now I know I'll never recommend anyone to go there. They didn't offer us a menu in first place, they started showing pictures and saying that this is good to share, we actually agreed, but they brought was not whaat was on the picture, there were many things on top, and we understood that it is all included, when they brought us a bill it was shocking 539 euro for not extremely high class of service and quality of food for 4 people. We didn't order any vintage wines or anything, but they simply replaced the fish soup that we ordered (9euro) with seefood soup (23 euro) and many other things that we didn't order, but they still brought them without indicating any price. And of course they started shouting at us when we refused to pay. And it took us quite an effort to finally get the menu and ask what where and how appeared on the bill. SO IF YOU WANT A GOOD FIGHT AND SHOUTING GO TO THIS RESTAURANTS, otherwise PASS IT and SEND this info to all your friends. The worst ever restaurant, with terrible service, liars and huge bills. Total rip-off.

“You will regret entering this restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2010

While on our trip in Brussels recently me and my girlfriend stepped in to this restaurant since it looked ok on the outside and had a couple of vacant tables. However once we entered we regretted it. The service which is most likely the owner is arrogant and not helpful at all and the whole setting of the restaurant is cheap and appalling. In addition the menu was very expensive for the food which it served. Even if the food was good and the prices of better value the service is a turnoff by itself. Don`t make the mistake of choosing this restaurant, it will ruin the rest of your night.

“Be Carefull about the daily menu”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2008

We went to this restaurant because some of us want to spend not so much and we find a good price for fixed menù.
We made a mistake to give some choise to the restaurant man, that suggest to split some plate so we can spend the same as the fixed menu.
we were 6 persons and our menu was :
1 entries smoked salmon
2 paella
2 grilled fish (very small pieces )
2 wine of house (12 euro x bottle)
3 glass of grappa (18€)
The total price was 194,59 euro

SO be carefull about give a choise to them and ask about the price of the beverage.
