Often changing menu, with creative surprises. The wooden benches inside make it something like you are waiting in a train station, and on the other side, the book shelfs give the idea of being in a reading room of a library. Try the 'cote de veau', if it is on the menu of course. And also the chocolate mousse is... More

This was our second dinner here and was a Valentines surprise from my husband. It delivered even more on our second visit. The ambience of the restaurant is cosy and romantic. We went for the tasting menu and loved it. The service was exceptional, memorable in particular was the extent they went to in ensuring we enjoyed our wine. Their... More

Very nice service and atmosphere. Waiter was very kind and suggested an off the menu peace of meat. Supposedly delicious and true for the matter of fact but to our surprise also 50% more expensive than the announced equivalent (47,5€ instead of 32€) on the menu. So basically left with a feeling having been a bit ripped off...

A very cosy restaurant, wonderful owner. The menu changes every 2 weeks, so always something new. Company and I had a starter, a kind of braised tuna with sesame, which was good, but not exceptional. For the main course, my company had poached cod with fennel sausages, the cod was poached to perfection, the sausages and accompanying sauce were a... More

Don't be there before 8 pm! As all the typical upscale resto in Bruxelles it fills up around 9pm. It is small place located on busy Ch de Waterloo. We tried the menu-5 services. Good quality food, service attentive but not over the top. Wine list quite exhaustive and the overall experience very good. Pricey

En Face De Parachute, named because it's across the street from the fashionable Parachute Jump tailor. It's elegant, stylish, small enough to be a great cozy romantic experience, but it's let down by poor service and high prices. The food was good, the atmosphere is quiet, refined, classic, but the experience fell short of the level expected. I think that... More

Nice dinner with a friend. Food was above my expectations. The right and subtle fusion of traditional basic ingredients with a really modern twist, and this is exactly what I like. Fresh products, good wines by the glass, nice setting. Everything you ask for in a nice restaurant. Maybe a bit expensive.

Fantastic menu, a subtle fusion of traditional French and Asian influences. I had the frog legs starter followed by the beef. Both were cooked perfectly to my taste and portion sizes were generous and service was suitable attentive.

Having had a lovely meal here on a previous occasion, I decided to go with a friend who had never been. To be brief- we arrived at 845, ordered some water and said we'd look at the wine list (on a board on the wall. Interesting if expensive selection). From that moment on we had to ask for everything. It... More
