Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The speculoos cookies and many delicious biscuits at Maison Dandoy are their specialty - a treat that you CANNOT miss! You can't go wrong with any of these amazing delights. With a speculoos recipe that's almost 200 years old, I have never be disappointed by a Maison Dandoy biscuit and when I give them as presents, the look of delight on the faces of those trying them for the first time is all I need to know what a treasure this bruxellois staple is. Don't miss out on the speculoos spread - get one more bottle than you think you need because this spread makes everything more delicious! The reviews about the waffles that aren't about how good they are, are obviously written by tourists and people who don't know what Bruxelles and Maison Dandoy has to offer, Ignore them and go find a waffle from a street vendor if that's what you think Bruxelles is about. Maison Dandoy - Louise is a wonderful store too!

With this company, you have a few options depending on what you are wanting for treats. One of their locations is mostly waffles (Rue de Charles Buls), the one in the Galeries is a mix and then a couple of others are dedicated to their cookies and treats. Another one of the places you should stop by for some special Belgian treats. My suggestion would be to go to the location in the Galeries (if you can get is as this one can get crazy packed) or to the one just west of Grand Place on Rue au Beurre. A great collection of sweet treats awaits you whichever location you pick. There are several locations to pick from away from Grand Place if you are looking for a quieter experience. They have a great selection of options to take and eat on the spot but also a good selection of pre-packaged options (still hand-made on-site) that can travel with you or be shipped.

How beautiful, when engrossed in walking while accompanied by quality food.
Sugarless waffles are the right choice for citrus topping.

What a fun little place. Great ambience and delicious waffles. We went with the traditional Belgian waffle and it was amazing. Our tour guide pointed out this place during a walking tour, and we circled back late that evening. Ate one walking back to the train station and saved one for the next day. Warm or cold - these are quite tasty!

A charming place - it could not be different with so many biscuits and beautiful gift boxes! But the waffle, what a disappointment: it was reheated! We were the first one to enter in the store in the morning and there were a lot of waffles ready to be reheated, already cooked. We noticed that all of the waffle stores in the city did the same (what a pity!), but then the question here is the overprice.

Waited in line for about 20-30 minutes. Totally worth the wait. We all got the Liege waffle with a variety of toppings. Incredibly delicious and very unique in the world of waffles. I would recommend to anyone that has the patience to wait.

Lovely eatery and takeaway in Grand Place. The waffles are superb. A little expensive but to be expected and well worth the money. Suitable for all ages. The seating area is up a flight of narrow stairs, so not accessible to all.

I have tried both the Brussels waffle and the Liege waffle at this place, and they are both really good!

Probably a 3.5. The waffles seemed fresh and were good! Access difficult for older people or those with some relevant disability. Service average although pleasant although not very busy.
