No bad comment will stop the tourists flowing to have a drink or a meal at this place but it has very bad management and a misleading offer. No problem to pay 6€ for a so called "fresh" squeezed fruit juice on one of the...More

No, do not eat here; it’s that simple. The food was OK, but there is much better nearby. The beer selection was poor and the service was worse. It should be noted that both my wife and I were servers/bartenders for over 10 years and...More

This restaurant is located conveniently at the Grand Place, the food quality is actually not bad, great for a lunch stop after visiting the Grand Place.

Very good service here especially in comparison to the place next door. The food was reasonable and breakfasts reasonably priced. However, be careful when ordering the breakfasts which include drinks. The included coffee does not extend to anything other than basic coffee. Two cappuccinos later...More

« La brouette » is the house of the corporation of the “graissiers”. It is Saint-Gilles, their patron saint, who watches over the destiny of this welcoming and rustic tavern. Open fire, ancient chandeliers, “patinés” floors and well-dressed waiters are some elements that will assure a good moment. The menu accommodates small hungers but big ones too. While making your choice you can savour a “pils” or a special beer”. This pleasant place allows you to “play tourist” from time to time to contemplate this unique Grand Place that Victor Hugo loved so much!
