Really love Cool Bun, one of the best places for a burger in Brussels. Good variety of options in the menu, including chicken and fish. Service was good, especially for Brussels standards, friendly staff and reasonable prices..I also like a lot the choice of mini burgers, which offers a tapas like approach.. The restaurant is in a quiet street, quite close to Avenue Louise..

Visited the Schuman one with a group of 12+4 little ones and they were very good getting us all seated with an adults and kids table.

Positives:
The waiter was very calm and polite and handles the children well. Food took a while to order however that is to be expected with such a large group but when it came it was very good. The burgers were cooked red in the middle (as I ordered) and the onion rings were amazing. Drinks were well priced and decent selection.

Negative:
Can be expensive if you don't watch what you order. Very small, our group took up over 3/4 of it.

Overall:
Very much worth a visit if just for the onion rings.

Waited about 40 minutes to be served a beer. (30 minutes to be asked drinks orders and 10 minutes to have the beer arrive). Burgers over one hour!
Burger was small and dry. Frites were not hot. All for 30 euro! 22 euro for the burger + my share of drinks for one beer and wine.
By any standards a poor meal!

A nice clean, simple interior, good service and excellent quality burgers. Everything is organic and they make everything themselves including the buns. There is a good variety of options on the menu including chicken, seafood and fish for those who don't like beef. A good selection of wines and beers too. Not the cheapest burger, but the pricing does reflect the quality. Still not over the top at around €13-15. I've done a more detailed review on my blog.

Since weeks I wanted to try out this restaurant. Decoration and ambiance is really nice and casual and you can't help but feeling homely and at ease. The burgers were really tasty with "real minced meat" instead of the horrible food you get at other places. A large variety of choices on the menu card and a lot of suggestions are available. The prices are quite high from 15-25 EUR per burger but it is still worth it as the portions are big. Staff has been really friendly and helpful and realized all extra wishes with a smile. Waiting time was not too long. I can really recommend this place for a dinner between friends and having a good time.
