We went for a business lunch but was not the ideal place. To heavy lunch and not a lot of choice (especially for vegetarians). Very classic, which is not wrong, but here it was rather basic. I am sure (and hope) the restaurant can make...More

In an very old house with o lot of historical past and simular decoration, you can find a fair meal or menu at a reasonable price. Good food, good service and an unforgetable interior. Your friend (girl) will appreciate it!

At only 2 steps from Brussels Expo and the Atomium. enjoy a gourmet experience away from the stress of the city in the quietude of a picturesque inn dating back to the seventeenth century. "Le Vieux Pannenhuis" has been known for decades for its subtle blend of classic gourmet dishes and daring culinary preparations, its hearty grilled meats, its proposals of lobster, scallops or serrano ham, and the best game preparations in Brussels during the season. Many businessmen meet here at lunchtime for the great businesslunch formula. The place also attracts a discreet gourmet public. Our guests gather here in the winter, around the open fires, or, in the summer, in the small intimate city garden or in the airconditioned rooms. A trip back in time, a magical place that will not leave you unmoved. As pointed out recently in "The Bulletin", after a great dinner at "Le Vieux Pannenhuis", you may unexpectedly find yourself wondering where you parked your caleche !
