We celebrated our friends' 30th birthday and it was amazing ! Barmen & barmaids were cool af, neighbourhood very easy-going. Going to be one of my best places to go out. I totally recommend it!

I just saw the bad reviews/comments and don't understand them. This place is lovely and all the staff was smilling and charming. The menu is simple, but everything we ordered was good. They have veggie plates and burgers, a daily dish for 10€, Great beers,...More

Great little find - good atmosphere and friendly staff. Nice choice of veggie options on the menu and staff recommended the best beers for our food choices. Reasonably priced too! Really enjoyed!

Had the Flemish stew, very tender with a good flavor. Fries were pretty tasteless. After ordering I noticed most people are having burgers...so that must be the hot item here. Picked the restaurant as it had the best ratings close to the Brussels Beer Project.

Went there on Sunday evening with some friends for dinner and a drink. Very nice typical Belgium bar atmosphere. Relaxed and chilled out. Food was OK, not amazing.

It cant be wrong and Walvis stays one of my Brussl favourites both for daytime coffee, lunch, snack or easy going drinking with buddies at Night before clubbing somewhere Else... A perfect place to have meetings, see and be seen.

Nice atmosphere here. I enjoyed my food, service was a bit slow but it was very busy. I wasn't in a hurry! Staff were friendly and the coffee was strong!

Nice place, but the food was terrible. I ordered a caesar salad and I received a plate with some green salad (not even washed) and 3 pieces of dried chicken. That's it. Very sad. My friend ordered another salad and they forgot most of the...More

We go to Walvis often - our kids love the children's corner & the staff are super nice with our inquisitive toddler. The food is great - my favourite is the goat cheese salad. Steaks are also nice. Service is great & they always treat...More
