“For the area it's outstanding, for those used to malls elsewhere - not”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Easy to get to by public transit or by car, good parking. A good assortment of stores but the building tends to force a layout of everything which is a bit of a puzzle.

Most of the stores are willing to dicker a bit on things but will hold fast to prices on the whole. Yes, you can find better deals elsewhere but suffer the pain of going store to store to store to store (you get the picture). Nearby is a very good for the area bookstore with French, Flemish and English sections called Cook and Book. Also nearby is Rob a gourment level grocery store.

So for a one stop shopping experience and considering the area, outstanding. If you come from UK or North America and other places with large malls this will be disappointing.

“Small mall”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

This slightly out-of-town mall is very small, so please don't expect a Metro Centre or Wesfield type UK mall as it is by comparison absolutely minute! Getting here is easy... the Metro drops you off in the basement and once inside there's an unremarkable array of poorly laid out stores where you can while away a damp afternoon.

“Nice shopping”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Plenty of lovely shops, on the ground floor a very nice sandwich bar/brasserie. Becomes very crowdy and busy on Saturdays, in particular when it's rainy/cold, as it's an indoor shopping mall.

“Spacious, bright, cosmopolitan”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Woluwe is one of the posher quarters of town, with plenty of greenery and wide, spacious boulevards. The shopping mall is situated at the intersection of two of these. There are large parking lots (for a fee, not often refunded by the shops) and access is convenient. The upper floor sports trendy boutiques and clothes and shoe shops but also a fast-food outlet and an electro equipment shop, while the lower floor is more devoted to food: a small but very convivial supermarket, a Vietnamese restaurant, an Italian food shop, espresso and smoothie bars and, of course, Belgian chocolates. And even a small chapel. On weekdays at noontime there are many kids from the adjacent schools looking for a quick lunch, while on Saturdays there will be the usual shopping crowds, from many backgrounds. The brightness and spaciousness of the place offers a very pleasant contrast with the busy downtown area and the large supermarkets
