We never go to "steak" restaurants except for this time when our American friends who just had a 9-day cruise on the Rhone wanted to eat a real good steak. We googled for the best steak restaurant in the centre of Brussels, but the one we found was closed for the 2-day holidays. We tried Leuven, found Meating Room and we were convinced by the positive reviews. The restaurant is a long hall, not fancy at all, but location is good, the place is clean, and the "server" at that time was friendly. We were surprised by the number of choices:
meat from Argentina, Belgium, France, Ireland, Scotland, Spain, and perhaps Japan basing on its name "Wangju" (visit their website for details). The different steaks we had were tender and tasty. Our food included green salad and Belgian fries/boiled potatoes and choice of varied sauces. The four of us agreed that it's one of the best steaks we've ever tasted.

This is the perfect place if you are a meat lover and look for the ideal steak.

Yes, the place is narrow and you don't have galaxies of space.

But what an experience once you have settled down : friendly and efficient staff make sure you have a grand meal : aperitif and free appetizers followed by your steak. Several sauces to choose from as well as your selection of patatoes. Ofcourse most of us had the fries with the traditional mayo.

First class meal, first class staff and a nice location : what else can you ask for ?

Oh yeah .... you might want to make reservations, because at this quality of food and service, the place is bound the be fully booked every evening.

Enjoy !!

We attacked the restaurant with more then 20 people and I was amazed by the quality of the food. It is just a very good steak house, no nonsense with high quality food. I loved the extra salad with tomatos but maybe they can add more variety. I was very pleased.

If all you care about is amazing steak then this is for you. The steak is outstanding! However, the rest of the menu is limited and the overall experience is average due to service and limited space in the restaurant (it is very narrow). Good location

I think they deserve a full house every night. The steak is of Michelin star quality. Easy. But the nice thing is you don't have to spend hours at the table. You just order one dish, steak of course, and maybe a dessert. I liked how the waitress made sure we got our steaks the way we wanted it, they seemed to have enough expertise to do bien cuit as well as saignant... We got nice free appetisers (bruschetta and toast), there was only one red wine, but it was a good and unexpensive Merlot that made a perfect match with the meat. And the meat was fantastic. It came with sauce, french fries or jacket potatoes and a big bowl of salad. I had Angus Beef, saignant, and I can say you could see, smell and taste that everything about it was done the way it should. I could only see one weakness about the restaurant: if you are 2 persons, your table will be too small. But for us food and service were perfect.
