The seafood was wonderful! If you love shellfish, this is the place to be! I dream about this meal often and wish I could get something like this in the States.

Quarter De L'Ilot Sacre is without a doubt one of the main tourist areas of Brussels and a walk through some of the restaurant lined streets will confirm this. Walking through the streets you will be accosted by many restaurant hawkers trying to lure you...More

Whether it's shopping or eating, there was something for everyone here. Plus it was all Christmassy at this time of year!

I was pleasantly surprised to find such a gem in a touristy area so close to Grand Place. The restaurant itself is on a lovely narrow alley street. The food was excellent quality and the service very welcoming.

This street is for tourists only. We walked through once and saw that it's full of over priced restaurants and noisy waiters trying to get you in. Crowded, so beware of your belongings.

The place is packed with many rubbish restaurants (with a very few good exceptions though! - check reviews). If you haven't chosen your place in advance, I recommend just walking across and ignore the irritating, aggressive people trying to lure you inside.

We walked through this street quite a few times, as it was a good cut through to our hotel and although we only used this street for walking through (we didn't eat or drink down here) I still wouldn't recommend it. Admittedly, we thought the...More

Don't eat there ... all fake cuisine and bad quality . The well-known tourist trap and shame of Brussels. In its crowded narrow streets, you'll get constantly pestered by the restaurant's waiters, food is bad except in a couple of well-know places (Aux Armes de...More
