We came in by accident looking for shelter from the rain and surprisingly had the best dining experience in our West-Europe trip. We were a party of four and every one of us ordered something different: fish, beef, chicken, calamari. We shared and I must...More

I'm somewhat puzzled by the lacklustre reviews of this restaurant here on Tripadvisor. Maybe it is because the place is a bit of a misnomer as the poulet (chicken) in the name is definitely not the best plate on the menu. Maybe it's because the...More

Took non-Portuguese family and friends to this restaurant only to have a very disappointing and embarassing experience. With exception of the wine (overpriced) starters and main dishes were far from any average good portuguese food i know.The steak of the house (bitoque) was uneatable so...More

With the wide range of Portuguese restaurants in Brussels, I was frankly expecting more. The fish soup was extremely salty, the vinho verde so overpriced (almost 20 EUR for a bottle that can be bought at the supermarket for 6 grand)

The service is really good and the food is amazing. They don't accept any cards, so just bring money. But it's worth to go there. Well positioned near Place Flagey.

I did not think that the food or atmosphere at this Portuguese restaurant (which does not only serve chicken) was particularly memorable. Brussels has many Portuguese restaurants but this is not one of the better ones.

Le Roi Du Poulet is pretty much what you would get in a decent restaurant in Portugal. I had the "bacalhau a braz" many times and have never been disappointed. They also do a very decent paella. Staff is extremely friendly and welcoming.

It is a simple place that serves excellent food. Since we discovered it we have become regulars. Everything is nice, but if you are a cod lover like me you will enjoy it in so many different ways. The Madison one and the bacalao a...More
