This is a narrow street full of tourist restaurants. Its quite entertaining to stroll through but not great food and you can be quite hassled. Worth seeing and taking in the atmosphere but there are better places to eat elsewhere.

Everything is well decorated and so but the food is expensive. You can eat much better at another place that is not exhibiting there food like that. Don't expect the food to be fresh, it's only there for the tourists ... Walk through the rue de bouchers but eat somewhere else is my recommendation.

Rue Des Bouchers is a street in the Quartier De I'Ilot Sacre that in my opinion is a street that your probably better just walking through fast and ignore the "wonderful " meal deals that the restaurant hawkers will harangue you with as you pass. The street looks pretty and both sides are lined with "authentic " restaurants but most... More

This is the butcher street of Brussels where so many restaurants are located. You can have great meal here. So many great restaurants, not enough time to enjoy them all.

Lots of restaurant with many kinds of food types but be careful with pick pocketers as it gets cramped the alley and small to walk side by side. We went to restaurant called Shanghai restaurant, not nice staff but the chinese staff are nice. Food taste are ok but little salty.

A crazy area with tons and tons of restaurants and cafes and lots of people. Great place to sit somewhere and people watch. Be careful with pick pocketers. I found it fun to walk through and experience this area.

Walk through the street to soak in the atmosphere but eat elsewhere. Only aux armes de Bruxelles serves good food (not coincidently the only restaurant where no one will drag you inside), all the other restaurants are not worth trying. This has nothing to do with Belgium. It's one giant tourist trap. But then again, some tourists just like this... More

Feels like a red-light district without the attractions, curb side totes, menus without prices and unbelievable deals. Stay away, 2xKids meals water and a beer set us back 35 euro, luckily we realised it was a scam and did not order adult mains. Waiters became rude and pushy, kids food took 30mins to appear, worst experience ever. The whole street... More
