This place used to have a cool vibe...but the visit yesterday was so unpleasant. We sit at the bistro and start ordering a beer. We ask for a beer which is not served any more. We ask for something similar but they offer something completely different...so basically no competence in the beers they are serving. In the next five minutes... More

I had a nice lunch here. I had moules and then a crepe. The food was good and tasty , service was average, a bit slow. Somewhat pricy for what you get. I liked the decoration of the place.

I only give one excellent review in which city in the world. Since I already tried many restaurants in Helsinki this one was my favorite! Ambiance is amazing! So cozy and warmful. Bistro is upstairs so you must walk throw the bar which is equally beautiful. The staff is incredible. As they were full for dinner we waited in the... More

Belge is a great place to take a break of shopping or city walk. I had mixed feelings; sometimes during day time it is extremely difficult to get service, especially in second floor. But in evening service is great even there is much more people. Anyway, try your luck and go to see this nice belgium style bar. Second floow... More

I have been eating here few times before. Belge is categorized a quality restaurant and that's how my expectations are set. This time I went there a bit between lunch and dinner hours, and resaurant was almost empty. Anyway, service was really slow and therefore I skipped dessert I had planned to have. Positive was that I was received about... More

For a lunch the service was fine but the quality was average, nothing special. There was the "standard" and basic salad buffet and we choose mussels with white wine sauce. I have eaten better for similar price.

We visited this Belgian themed bar/bistro on a Sunday evening and it was relatively quite. it is located in the centre of Helsinki and was conveniently close to our hotel. We ate in the downstairs bar, I thought the prices were reasonable for a central location in an expensive capital city. You're not in Kansas any more! We both had... More
