Description: The Comics Cafe is an incredible 200 seats Brasserie-type restaurant where one can enjoy tasty Belgium and American Cuisine up to midnight. In a warm Comic-like atmosphere, you will discover the "COMICS Burger", the "CARBONNADE FLAMMANDE", the delicious strawberry Cheese cake and a lot more. Nice "Terrasse" on Grand Sablon, historic center of Brussel. Famous "TINTIN" statue at the entrance.

We came here specifically because it's the Comics Cafe and for the shop next-door. The staff were very friendly and we were served quickly.

The food was delicious however I found the pasta portion size to be a little on the small side considering the cost, maybe it could have come with a little salad as an extra touch? But, overall it was lovely and we would return again.

Also if you go, make sure to check out the shop next-door as that is the real attraction!

It's not about the restaurant which offers decent burgers and good beers. You go there to visit "le village de la BD", the store dedicated to comics books. Lots of books for all ages and all tastes. Each room is dedicated to one theme. At the entrance a giant statue of Tintin. If you're a comics fan you'll enjoy the place, the wall paintings, the atmosphere.

Well , i didnt wanna be harsh but truly i went with my wife and as a big fan of burgers decided to try it .

needless to explain i spent the rest of the day sick and couldn't eat anything else .
the order took too long to come and the burger we had had its cheese starting to cool .

anyway i wouldn't go back there even for free.

i forgot , it was too expensive

Ended up here with some hungry kids.it was eat here or walk till we found something else. Wife and I both had bagel sandwiches. Kids had grilled chicken salad and chicken burger. We were hungry but it was surprisingly good.we expected mediocre food based on somewhat kitschy decor.

Cheap it was not. But kid friendly meals with parent friendly options made it a hit for us.

We went here because we had some children in our group and thought it would be fun for them. Certainly the building itself is fun and there are some great pictures on the wall etc, but we found the staff quite rude and there wasn't really an appeal for children beyond what was on the walls. The food was good quality but very expensive, especially as we found Brussels quite cheap compared to other European cities. Generally, I wouldn't recommend going here as there's so much choice and you could get better service, just as quality food and for much cheaper. But- the shop next door is worth a visit!
