My husband and I went with our 7 yr old son and had an amazing meal. Filler streak to die for. Beef carpaccio the best I've ever had. Crete brûlée to share as desert. Expensive but absolutely worth it. We would definitely eat there again next time we come to Brussels.

A small restaurant with good quality food. Specials at noon include three courses for 25.00 Euros. Portions are a bit small, but delicious with a gourmet touch.

I have visited this restaurant several times now and have always been impressed by the quality of the food and drink and the friendly staff. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Brussels wanting a real Belgian dining experience.

We visited at a party of 3 for a meal and drinks in January 2017. Highlights were the sole meuniére and the crème brûlée (to die for). It's a genuine local restaurant and we found the food and service to be very good. We paid €200 plus tip for 3 courses each and wine. Well worth a visit.

A true Belgian gem, crowded with people and small marble tables. The interior has a wonderful patina and the staff is genuinely belgian. The sea food is excellent (I had a tuna steak) but you can get all sorts of food. Prices are slightly above average but still moderate. The service is fine and the whole experience is just.... perfect!... More

We stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night and had a wonderful time. The restaurant has a distinctly local feel, and the French menus help keep it that way - this is not a tourist trap! The service is efficient and polite, but they leave you be. Food was absolutely delicious, with a good range of mains and deserts.... More

We had a magnificent Tartare de thon et avocat and Brochette de coquilles Saint Jacques grillées for starters. For main Filet de bar à la plancha, Steak de thon and Ragoût de coquilles Saint-Jacques. I can't decide which was the best. The place was rather noisy, the tables were close to each other and rather small. But I'll definitely go... More

This place is close to my office and a trusty haunt for lunchtime meetings. The menu is Belgian / Brussels classics. I had sea bass and my colleagues an onglet of beef. Good service and the cosy vibe of a traditional Brussels brasserie. It's not cheap but you won't be disappointed.

Excellently located in the fabulous Princes' Gallery (part of the St-Hubertus or Royal Galleries) in the center of Brussels, just a short walk away from the Grand Place/Grote Markt (the central market square - UNESCO world heritage!), this old-timer (in business since several decades) iconic restaurant (because of its location, style and good food) is a place I like to...
