“Horrible service”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Horrible service. Terrible management. It takes so long to take order. Stupid and poor attitude staff. We waited for more than 30 min to be served.

“Times better than those 1 Euro waffles”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

I had their waffle straight after having one 1 euro waffle from next door, just to compare the difference. Although this one I had in Dandoy was almost 5 times more expensive, it was also 5 times better. It is almost one euro cheaper to take away than eat in. So if you are not in desperate need to sit down, then maybe you should consider buying them take away, as there are still some tables for you to stand and have your waffles. The chocolate I had was rich in taste yet light in its texture, I needed no sugar for it. Although I am more of a fan of smooth and thick hot chocolate, it was still a good one to me. The little slice of sponge that came with it was also nice.

“Loved every bite”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

My adult son and I stopped in one morning for breakfast to see if the waffles served at the Maison Dandoy Tea Room were anything special. The previous day we had breakfast that included waffles at a small restaurant just off the Grand Place and they were good. However, the waffles at Maison Dandoy blew us away. They were in a league of their own, and while breakfast was not cheap, it was worth every bite. My son had strawberry topping with ice cream on his waffle and I had caramel topping and whipped cream. We ate every single bite knowing that this was not a healthy breakfast, but who cares when you are eating waffles like this?

“The worst waffle in Brussels”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

It was so long that we wanted to go...there was no place to seat with at least 10 people waiting and not because of wafle's quality but only because the service is extremely slow. So we decided to eat them standing. The service is very poor, they clearely do not love their job! No smile, no care, rough behaviour with the costumers. Not clean and the waiter touched wafles, icecream and everything without gloves... Brussel's wafle was not fresh as the strawberries. A bad quality chocolate soup around wafles... A very bad experience paying disproportionately. You can have low price delicious wafles just outside Dandoy's!!!!

“Amazing takeaway waffle”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

So do you have the Belgian or the Liege? What's the difference? One you add sugar to and the other it's already in the batter. I can't remember which is which but I had the waffle with sugar already in with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce, WOW. It was so delicious. I expected to pay a lot more even for a takeaway but at 5 euros it really wasn't bad value. An utterly delicious treat.
