Description: In the heart of Louise Village District, Colonel offers warmth and authenticity in an elegant and classy atmosphere. Colonel, restaurant dedicated to the terroirs of France, is mainly focused on high-quality beef. For the main course, in addition to those offered in the conventional menu, guests have the opportunity to choose in a large proposition of beef prime cuts, the breed, in dry-aged or not dry-aged version, at the butcher in the center of the room. "The Famous Colonel", dessert consisting of a lemon sorbet and a dose of vodka will be the flagship dessert of the restaurant. Finally, big plus: the parking Louise Village, next to the restaurant, (rue Dejoncker, 36), open 24/24, provides a direct entrance to the restaurant via level -1.

Looking for a new steak restaurant within easy reach of our house in Brussels, we found the Colonel on the web. I tried to book a table two days before we wanted to dine there, but was told that the only availability was at the bar. Well located just off Avenue Louise, the Colonel was immediately welcoming with a lively, conventional vibe. We were shown to our place at the bar - and it was great! The staff were professional and fun, the steak and wine were superb. We shall certainly go to the Colonel again and see look forward to doing so. I may even reserve a place at the bar...

Had a lovely meal here with the gorgeous ambiance and fabulous array of steaks on offer. Starter comprised of the black pork plate to share which was lovely. Both mains were the black Angus ribeyes which on reflection, I wished I stuck to medium rare instead of medium. I had erred on the side of caution as I thought it would be cooked under as typically so in Belgium. Still, it was juicy and delicious.

Not 5 star.....no bread was offered until asked. Waiter wasn't particularly friendly, but we did have another waiter serve us later and he was smiley (that's all it takes). No side options, just frites which I would have preferred potatoes. Asked for vegetables instead which were good.
