“Excellent local food!Try the moules frites with crme et ail!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

I have been living in Brussels for a couple of years, and everytime I want to go to a local good restaurant Volle gas is m y first choice.

The food is typical Belgian, with a great choice of every kind of local dish. However, when I go to Volle Gas, I always opt for the famous moules-frites. They serve the delicious and famous fresh mussles coming from Zealand with all kind of sauce: traditional, onion and cream ( my favourite), champagne, white wine, estragon, mushrooms and bacon, etc. Compared to Volle Gas, many restaurants of the city centre, including the famous Chez Leon, are more touristic with a downside on quality.

The restaurant is located in Place Fernand Cocq, 7 minutes walk from the Toison d´or and Avenue Louise shopping street. The atmosphere is excellent for a night with friends, for colleagues, family and lovely for a romantic dinner.

I definitely suggest it!

“Great typical Belgian place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

I have been to this place for the first time on June 8th 2013. We were a pretty large group (20+) and we had a perfect service. We were served the aperitif outside on the terras to enjoy the environment before enjoying the remainder of the evening inside.
All the plates were presented at the same time for the whole table, the food was great and atmosphere is superb!

I will soon return to have my family discover this great place!

Recommended place to enjoy a typical Belgian menu.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

We visited Volle Gas in January 2013. We tried traditional belgian dishes that were very nice. The waiters were really helpful and kind. The hole experience was excellent and we will definitely visit it again when we will be back in Bruxelles!

“Belgian relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Nice place to have a relaxed lunch. The food is traditional Belgian, with several options for vegetarians too. One of the guys was really friendly.
The menu list is maybe a bit too long and they better focus on less meals (e.g. getting rid of some pasta dish options). They claimed the famous Westvleteren beer which unfortunately was not available.

“Perfectly decent Belgian bistrot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

As recommended by the concierge at the Radisson Blu we went on a Wednesday evening, arriving around 10pm. This bistrot is in an old post office building and has lots of lovely woodwork indoors. We ate outside on the terrace, enjoying the warm ambient temperature - better than we get in Scotland!

I had the duo of croquettes - one crevette and one cheese: both were quite delicious. My colleague had the Belgian special of mashed potato with lots of bits of pig - he said it was grand. I had a small (200g) steak frites - the steak was well seasoned, tasty and cooked as requested and the wine to accompany (red Burgundy) was fine and reasonably priced.

The service was a bit slow but our bill 85 euros for two was a fair price for what we had and we enjoyed an authentically pleasant evening in Brussels.
