Found this by chance near our hotel and we were happy with our choice. Loved the menu - lots of choices of pastas, meats and fish. Plus the pasta was possible as an appetizer portion which was wonderful. Excellent antipasta dish- not sure why I liked it so much but I think the amounts of everything were just perfect. Excellent... More

Being Italian, I love when I can find nice food from my country. Overall it was a okay dinner. The best part was the antipasto, really good. However, the pasta trio was a bit under what I would consider an average, while the salmon was good. Good service but mandatory to book in advance.

The place is decent and offers a variety of dishes, including fish, meat and pasta. The sea bass I ordered was delicious, though the portion could be a bit bigger.

Traveling here on business. Stayed at hotel on same street. Looked up trip advisor and found this restaurant a block away. Had veal parmigiana with side of pasta. Pasta tasted homemade and the parmigiana was very good. I loved the sauce. Small restaurant but typical in the area. 4 star rating is accurate. Very good and recommended.

If TripAdvisor allowed to rate 4.5 I would have rated it 4.5. I reserve 5 for astonishing experiences but this one was better than just good. Fishes dominated suggestions on the day of our visit and we did not regret it: the espadon and salmon were great.

Poivre et Sel is a very pleasant restaurant offering a choice of French and Italian food in the European sector of Brussels close to the European Parliament. It is quite a small restaurant where the food is cooked in full view of the diners - always a sign of confidence in the quality of the food. There is a good... More

Have eaten here 4 times now, some dishes good and some not so. Their best dishes, IMHO, are the trio of foie gras to start, the crab ravioli for main and either crime brûlée or tarte tatin for dessert.
