Extremely poor service Disappointing quantity and quality. Price expensive for quality. Very long waiting time (more than one hour). Strongly advise against eating here.

Even though we spoke little French the staff kindly catered for us in English. Both of us loved the food and wish we were in Brussels more often so that we could try the rest of the menu!

Small restaurant with a nice atmosphere. I had a very delicious cod and risotto. My friend wasn’t too impressed with the falafels though.

Open from monday until sunday for lunch and dinner. ABrussel is a small restaurant only working with a small menu who is changing every month. Cuisine is simple, with a classic or more inventive choice. There is always a vegetarian choice available, as a Fish and a Belgian choice. We try to make our service friendly but not strict. Abrussel kids groups until 55 person. Possibility of privatisation of the first floor or the whole restaurant.
