One of the best burgers in BXL. The deserts are very good too, especially the banoffee :) they recently changed their menu to only pastrami sandwishes but I'm not sure if it's still like that, I haven't been their since.

After having heard a lot of good things about the burgers etc I was excited to try this place, unfortunately service was poor and slow. We waited for ages that someone took the orders, for drinks it was about 1h and the food even longer. Once it arrived it was cold. No effort was made to check if anything else... More

Good for big groups of people. Nice brunch on weekends. Can get somewhat noisy. Overall, nit bad but more appropriate for meeting up friends than for enjoying quality food.

I went to this restaurant with a friend of mine. We enjoyed a good burger (despite they forgot to serve sauces) and when we paid they tricked us by making us paying twice: I paid in cash 20 euros and my friend was supposed to pay the same by card, but they charged him the full amount. Unfortunately we noticed... More

A friend organised a party. There were 20 of us for a meal and afterwards we expected to have a space to dance and have drinks, with more people coming. Upon arrival we were told that our tables were occupied and that we should go out of the bar because we were obstructing the waiters. Food took a long time... More

Dear DrTheBussem, First of all, we are really sorry the evening didn't go as planned. It happens sometimes that a table isn't ready for a reservation and that our customers have to wait a little bit, and we agree with you that it is entirely our fault, that's why we offered you two bottles of red wine as a commercial...

L'amour fou used to be our favorite burger place in Brussels. The quality and the service have dropped significantly. We waited 1h40 to actually receive our order. They had forgotten our table, and the waitress had no visual memory. She kept coming over to our table to ask whether we had ordered, and we said, twice, that we had ordered... More
