Buffet at lunch was ghastly, Appetizers were sparse, with Feta mixed in everything, One of the 2 specials were never replenished. Bread basket empty in spite of asking staff for more Dessert was pathetic Do not go

What used to be a nice restaurant with impeccable service turned out to be a downgraded cafeteria with buffet self-service, average food, plastified menu cards and unprofessional service. OK for a road-side eatery but not for the museum restaurant. Very disappointed!

An elegant place - its elegance somewhat diminished by staff children playing around the toilets. The dish we ordered came without one of the main ingredients advertised. Staff couldn't care less. No plain water available - perhaps they don't have a tap. You can eat...More

Worst restaurant experience ever - we have not even got to taste anything! The so-called manager is shameless and very very rude. It was supposed to be a treat for our visitors from Italy and turned out to be the most embarrassing experience - after...More

This is a beautiful restaurant near the Royal Palace in Brussels. Nowadays the Brasserie goes by the name of Museum Restaurant. Behind a closed door in a small dark hallway you will find this beautifully designed restaurant. When I asked if I could have lunch,...More
