I've been to l'autre cantina two or three times and the service is consistently slow, confused and there are always things missing from the menu. The food is pretty good but the general atmosphere just doesn't compensate. Not a Brussels favourite....

I really like the decoration of this place, for me its worth a visit by itself. Very colourful paintings on the wall (inside and outside, on the garden side), funky lamps hanging from the ceiling covered with lace, nice music. We've been here twice so...More

If you like bric-a-brac and rude intrusive service, this is the place for you. When the owner is not hassling you to buy her book or rent her three room ground floor restaurant for a party, she is hovering by the table, ready to burst...More

Very interesting decor; I've never seen so many statues of Jesus in my life! Food was very good and the wine suggestion was delicious and complemented our meals perfectly. Overall, I'd say the food was about a 7 out of 10, but the service was...More

The atmosphere is good. We were informed that on Sundays there is an all you can eat buffet for 21 euros per person (drinks excluded). The buffet was not yet displayed. When the buffet was revealed we realized it was composed by 2 kinds of...More
