We tried to go to this restaurant last year and couldn't find it so we were really pleased to manage to get in this time.
The atmosphere is great and we all had the jambonneau which was absolutely delicious. The portions are massive and very good value.
I would definitely recommend it and can't wait to visit again.

My husband and I ate here on the first night of a recent min break. It was recommended to us and we weren't disappointed, great atmosphere, great food and great service. No cards accepted so remember take cash. Flemish stew was to die for and the mash as good as I've had anywhere, well worth a visit.

Fin de Siecle has become one of my favourite eating places in Brussels. The food is good and the portions are abundant to say the least. It can get a bit crowded but hey that adds to the atmosphere of this restaurant. Menu is displayed on a big blackboard behind the bar and it seems to change regularly. Service is good and food prices are reasonable compared to the portions and quality of food. One thing is that you only can pay in cash, so make sure you take paper money with you. Will definitely visit again.

Have you ever had an endive stuffed with pork, wrapped in ham, and stewed in a beef stock and onion-based sauce? Well, I hadn't until we came here, and it was delicious (chicons farcis on the menu).

The staff here is a very friendly bunch, and it's a really fun and lively atmosphere. Nice beer selection. Prices are very reasonable, too.

This is a five minute walk from the Grand Place, and you can rest assured that the food is ten times better than what you're likely to find near there. In fact, this entire area near St. Catherine's is really cool.

This place is well worth a visit.

Fin de siècle is one of my favorite restaurants in Brussels. The menu combines traditional Belgian food (jambonneau, stoemp) and international cuisine (Irish steak, tandoori chicken, etc.). I definitely come here for the Belgian dishes as they are really good and prices are reasonable. They have a good selection of beers and a good and friendly service (still, take into account that you are in Belgium). The place is always crowded thus you should be prepared to wait for a little bit. Bring cash as they do not accept credit cards. They open until late which is definitely a plus. The place is close to the grand place and to st. gery where you might consider having a drink after your dinner at Fin de Siècle.
