A wonderful terrace, quiet, in a nice street. but amazingly slow, chaotic and nearly arrogant service by friendly but inexperienced people. All this for less than average food. Change the full team, restart with respect and love for the customers and everything will be all...More

It is a nice location to enjoy when it's warm outside. People working there are nice but seem very busy. We had to wait quite a long time outside before someone noticed us. We had only two salads and a bit of wine. It was...More

We had a lunch for a group of 20 persons for a fixed price, ordered in advance telling them one week before what we wanted to eat. The food was good. They were unable to serve a three-course lunch in two and a half hours....More

This restaurant was recommended by friends, but it's still unclear why.. The menu is rather limited, the service was a bit awkward, the food quality was average. Setting is nice, but on a Saturday evening only 4 to 5 tables were taken.

It's very unfortunate and it's the second time. First the service. It's one of those places where you don't feel in Brussels but rather in Paris with a waitress or the owner seem to be unhappy to work and serve. Doesn't look at you and...More

Relax place to be - nice outside sitting under big tree, good food and friendly service. Good selection of wine & beers, and original food combinations. Good for a quick lunch and great for a relax evening drink & dinner on a sunny evening.

L���Arriere Pays restaurant in Brussels near the huge museum and the Palais Royal is a rustic, casual restaurant-cum-epicerie that also is a charming spot for tea or an early-evening drink. The front room is a shop for reagional, artisanal products are sold. The dining rooms are kitted out with solid wood floors and furniture and walls the colour of sun-ripened tomatoes, a cosy ambience for light lunches and suppers. Choices include salads, cold or warm tartines, pastas, tartiflette, steaks and vegetarian dishes. The tiramisu with speculoos and genievre (Dutch gin) is an inspired combination, and artisan ice creams keep the inner child quiet for quite a while. The terrace seats up to 60 ��� a terrific choice for a group or private meal, and the whole restaurant can be booked for events.
