Busy restaurant in St. Catherine quarter with focus on seafood. Had very good fish soup and mussels. My five was very satisfied with her crab. Staff very efficient and polite. Price good for the offering.

We had booked the restaurant for a party of 10. Whilst the food was good; I had oysters and a beautifully cooked rare entrecôte, the service was slow; the food took a long time to arrive. In addition, instead of placing the wine on the...More

Beautiful piece of fish and amazing chocolate pudding. Staff very friendly and helpful. My French is very poor, but one of the waiters spoke very good English. Could happily have eaten there every day.

I was with a table of six. Average food. Lackadaisical and disinterested service, about an hour per course and that with prompting. We left before dessert and knocked it off the bill. The management didn't quibble.

The food and service were excellent. The location was in a lively square adding character to the place. The restaurant was fully booked by seafood lovers at the time of our visit.

We went there taking the offer of "dinning with the stars", and we had a very enjoyable experience. I can't repeat the names of the dishes we ate, but we had a wonderful choice do fish, meat and sweets that was very balanced, with rich...More

‘Respect and simplicity’ are the bywords of Jaloa, a modern French restaurant right on Brussels Place de la Vieille Halle aux Blés. It’s near the Central train station, so you should give in to temptation and make this your first stop when you take the train in from the airport. Founded and run with passion and energy by chefs Gaetan Colin and Michel Robert, Jaloa is both smart and casual. The multi-level dining room is furnished with schoolroom-type chairs, scrubbed wood tables, brilliant modern paintings, and smart table settings. A private room seats intimate groups up to 16 diners, and hiring the entire restaurant makes parties up to 55 possible. Originally a wine bar, Jaloa’s wine list is as French as can be, and roams broadly through the regions. The menu is Mediterranean-inflected French with seasonal dishes. Try starter of carpaccio of beefheart tomatoes with rocket, main course of roasted turbotin with mixed mini-veg and creamed 30-year-old parmesan, and dessert of crème brûlée made with Madagascan vanilla.
