Some of best meat in Brussels - flame-grilled and full of flavour! Small and intimate restaurant ideal for romantic dinners or an intimate dinner with friends.

The woodstove is the first thing you see and smell as you walk in. Lovely. The dimmed lights make you feel very cosy even though tables are very close one to another. The place attracts meat purists but pescatarians get their fair share too. Prices quite high but definitely worth the visit.

Lettre à Elise is mainly a meat restaurant. The steaks are grilled by the chef-owner on a beech wood grill in the middle of the... More
