The welcome and ambience is so welcoming and the service and food that follow are just amazing. It is strongly advisable to book way in advance it is a small place on a quiet street away from the busy Chaussee de Waterloo. And the location does not hurt for a drink before or after

Just go there. You won't be disappointed. Recommend tartare de thon, cervelle de veau, cabillaud, any lamb course and the homemade speculoos ice cream. Have the Graves with it.

This is the best restaurant in town for me. I had my first date with my lovely wife at La Canne en Ville. Organised my engagement diner with my family there. There is magic in that place, you feel so comfortable , the food is amazing. Tell only to your best friends. Owners are so nice, husband is the chef😉👍

This small, very typical Belgium restaurant is a ilttle off the beaten path (about a 10 minute cab ride from Grand Place), but worth the trek.Friendly and family run, the pate was great as were the snails and lamb chops. Their wine prices were reasonable. The lady owner delightful. We were recommended to this restaurant by a Brussels lawyer friend... More

Great food! Christian, le chef, is an unassuming virtuoso. Atmosphere, service and quality of food and products are excellent. The Canne en Ville has been there for over 30 years and deserves its success and longevity. Quality price/ratio is really good, particularly at lunch time with the menu of the day. Even their "vin du patron", sold by the centimetre... More

This little restaurant has been there for 33 years. And for me, the reason is clear. The owners basically love what they do, and you can see this in the food, the service and the ambience of the restaurant. Is not cheap restaurant, but the food is just great. We went for sharing 5 starters - it was a dinner... More

In a city and mostly in an area where the resto/food standards are quite high, this place is just pretending : it sells off nice ambiance, within a lovely and upscale area, but the outcome is not at this level at all. The service is quite strange and not friendly, while the cooking is very unhappy. Not value for money... More

We have been going to La Canne en Ville for years and it has never failed to please with its consistent high quality production of classic Belgian cooking, warm welcome, and thoughtful wine list. Located in a former butcher shop, the restaurant has three separate rooms and if the weather is nice outside seating. While the tables are close together... More

We had not been to La Canne en Ville in several years and were looking for a cozy and intimate restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. Well, we did not have to look any further than our very own neighborhood (Ixelles) for the perfect venue. La Canne en Ville has been owned and operated by the same family for the past... More

La Canne en Ville is the place if you're looking for a great and wholesome dinner. Not cheap but worth every cent. Starters: Foie gras Mains: Chateaubriand with bearnaise and mustard sauce Dessert: Creme brulee Magic!!! Hostess was very kind and went through the menu in perfect English. Service excellent. Go there.
