Burgers were dry, meat was cardboard and fries were soggy and drenched in oil What used to be a must for homemade burgers has really fallen low Venue is still nice and drinks were ok

I love burgers, I love that place- atmosphere, food, interior design... very cool place for a dinner with friends, DJ and good drinks. I even forgive them not having well-done meat as I've asked for- still one of the best I've ever had!

One of the best burgers in BXL. The deserts are very good too, especially the banoffee :) they recently changed their menu to only pastrami sandwishes but I'm not sure if it's still like that, I haven't been their since.

Good for big groups of people. Nice brunch on weekends. Can get somewhat noisy. Overall, nit bad but more appropriate for meeting up friends than for enjoying quality food.

L'amour fou used to be our favorite burger place in Brussels. The quality and the service have dropped significantly. We waited 1h40 to actually receive our order. They had forgotten our table, and the waitress had no visual memory. She kept coming over to our...More
