When you go to a restaurant on the Grand Place, you can expect to be in a touristy place so no surprise there. The menu and beverage prices are typical for a tourist restaurant. The food is of average quality. I had meze as starter which was pretty good. This can easily be your main meal as it's quite large.... More

I can't rave about this restaurant enough! Amazing, fabulous! This hole in the wall that seems to be a tourist trap is anything but! Great service, delicious starters "on the house", the most perfectly barbecued lamb chops you will ever taste, and the most fantastic dish I have ever had the luck of tasting; "lamb papillote", consisting of melted feta...

Stopped there for lunch on a Friday. The staff were very welcoming (unlike other restaurants that faced on the Grand Place) . Loved the coziness of the interior. The food was so tasty - lamb brochette, salad, potatoes, lemon rice, bread, antipasto, - so yummy! I will go back .

Went several times here over the years. Right at the grand place of Brussels. And a 'great' place it is. Typical decorations but very, very cosy. Several typical greek dishes are served with kwowledge and bringing up great flavours. Not expensive at all considering the surroundings. You can also enjoy a local band with guitar and harp. Go there for... More
