We went there by chance to grab food before a movie. We ordered a steak with French fries and got our dish within minutes. Very good meat and cooked rare as ordered. Nice selection of wines from a respected wine merchant. Overall a nice experience,...More

All my other options turned bust so this one was a panic choice at the spot. Fairly high prices, poor choices, standoffish and hurried service. No help with the foods, not much English. Gave me the wrong dish in the end as it turns out....More

Just opposite the Tour Noire Novotel, we picked this for dinner on the first night of our 3 night break in Brussels. Service friendly and helpful. Very good recommendations for food. Reasonably priced - good enough that we ate there two nights.

Babeko restaurant in the heart of Brussels, just a few steps outside Brussels��� very first city wall and near a dozen theatres, is a hotbed of creativity. Sited in an ancient building ��� the oak beams have been dated to 1567 ��� Babeko���s menu is rooted in timeless French techniques and draws inspiration from the rest of the world too. Each dish is arranged as a beautiful little sculpture on a smartly-designed plate with scribble of sauce. The ambience is vibrant and trendy, the d��cor a breathtaking modern interpolation into the old house. Private tables in the vaulted cellars are lit with scads of candles, while the sun pours down on the terrace outside.
