Located in a historical building dating from the 1500's The Spijtigen Duivel is an institution in Brussels. I like the typical Belgian brasserie look and ambiance and it is therefore harder for me to admit that the quality of the food is far from the...More

The best of Belgian cuisine, freshly prepared, generous portions, excellent choice of beers, prompt and efficient service, very reasonably priced, favoured by discerning locals. This is the genuine article!

One year later, and still the same qppuality. Very good ambiance, very tasty food and a perfect service. Try the jambonneau or the rognons sauce moutarde, you won't be deceived.

Moules frites par excellence, beef to die for and a great beer selection - all for a reasonable price. If you can get to Uccle, go here.

One of the oldest bars in Brussels, its atmosphere is created by its local heritage and love for beer. There is a great choose of celebrated Belgium foods at very decent prices, much cheaper for the quality than you will find in the centre.
