Dear family, I am sorry to have brought you to this place on our last night in Brussels! So many nice places to eat in this city and we end up here.
We walked into the Bien Belge and there was no one to greet us. We walk in a bit further and still no one. A group of Bien Belge workers behind the bar and another group setting up a large table for a party of about 15. Someone finally looks our way after we made our way into the middle of the restaurant and basically asks what we want. We tell them we have a reservation and someone points to a table of 4 and says, "there". The service remains at the same level all night. We ordered 1 starter, I refrained because I already had a bad feeling about the place. Then we ordered 2 BBB steaks which Im not sure what BBB means because it was a very basic steak, well cooked but with a simple salad on the plate and a small ramekin of mayo (???). Also ordered a turkey roll dish....hmmmm. I ordered a pike perch fillet, white fish. It arrived and the fish was between 3 and 4 ounces in size draped over some mash potatoes that was about 20 ounces in size and formed into the shape of a brick from one end of the plate to the other....... I left hungry because I dont do huge portions of mash potato. After we finished eating we sat for a good 15 minutes with the plates in front of us. Someone, not our waiter, finally came and took the plates. They asked if we wanted dessert and I said, "no". We then paid a huge bill and left. I cannot imagine how this place has good reviews. Maybe just a different expectation from their crowed. We were definitely the odd man out as the average age was about 70. I leave it down to different tastes.
