Abrussel is an amazing restaurant! It is small and cozy. The service was outstanding and the mussels were very good. We were two couples traveling together and we loved it!

But sometimes you dont always want a huge choice. Stew brilliant (Although chips were standard), Falafel great too. Very small restaurant so you may have trouble getting in.

9pm in Brussels and looking for a place to eat around the Grand Place area. Luckily Abrussel was open and had a table or two. You pays your money and you takes your chance as they say. Well this was fine. A good tummy filler on a cold night in Brussels! Good food. Choice of beer and wine and a... More

On new years day myself and seven friends visited Abrussel. On first inspection it's was quite a small place. The majority of our table ordered steak, but there was a problem when they arrived as all of the sauces were mixed up. So we had to figure out who's was who's. Every steak that was served was extremely rare and... More

Thank you for the great Jambonneau and in time delivery. Although I have to remark the fries were really saggy. You should pierce several (20+-) holes in the container so no steam can build up. That way even take away clients will have crispy fries! Also if your beers were reasonably priced I would have bought three. 7€ is way... More

A small restaurant with nice street view and lovely intimate atmosphere. Delicious mussels cooked Brussels style with special Belgian beer. Service was good too. Recommended for a Belgian experience!

We had an excellent authentic meal here with the family. I had a really yummy stew and other members of the family had some other traditional food. Of course, I had some Belgium beer :)

It's a very cosy restaurant with only few tables inside. My husband ordered a beef steak which was cooked perfectly and my veal meatballs in brown sweet and sour sauce were delicious. Our deserts were also great, I had a chocolate mousse and my husband brown sugar pie. The selection of beers could be better. Although I found the food... More

We went here for the mussels and had great food and super service. We had the mussels with a curry sauce and a traditional beer sauce. Both were great (as were the frites)! I opted for a glass of the house white wine and it paired quite well. We would definitely return!

Thank M W

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.
