Those looking for the authentic cuisine of Brussels, look no further: this is it. Without tourists around, this is no tourist trap: Les Trappistes is how the Brussels brasserie should look, feel and taste. A good "Américain" is a raw one, and in this case the vintage dish is prepared at the table the way it should. Not for the... More

Original decor, professional waiter with a sense of humor, who makes a mean table side "Américain Frites" to die for, excellent price/quality-wise. A true Belgian restaurant making honest Belgian food.

The owner is an Italian who went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and was behind the bar bar tending with his workers. They were all incredibly nice and it had a "local" feel and... More

whatever you do, do not order the Brussels waffle. I was served one that was frozen far too long ago, then baked or microwaved until it was impossible to chew through. I kid you not : bits were flying towards other people's table as I attempted to cut through it. When complained, the waiter said he was sorry but it... More
