I have never seen such reviews as the ones below on Trip Advisor!! Dear Management of this restaurant, You have a nice place, the waiter gave me a nice welcome. The glass of beer was very good and so was the French onion soup. "Formidable!". Just a few things would change the reviews you get and make your restaurant full... More

If you like your table waiters to display the kind of contempt usually reserved for a militant vegan at a barbecue, or your drinks delivered with the aggressive scowl of a cage fighter, then this is the place for you. I usually wouldn't consider it fair to give a poor review to a place where we only had drinks, but... More

Ate here with Dad last week . The waiter recommended the fillet which we declined as I wanted my dad to try the mussels which he'd never tried before . A waiter with a pony tail was milling around the place shouting at other members of the staff which was highly inappropriate in an environment in which guests are trying... More

Did I mention how rude the waiter was? We sat down and cleared our own table and found our own menu. After we had waited ten minutes of being ignored and surrounding people being served, I asked a waitress as she walked by and she said in a minute. We waited another 5 minutes and both the waitress and the... More

The food is very expensive for what you get. And what you do get is microwave quality at best. I have been here twice and both times the food was very low quality. 1 point for having Keizer karel beer.

We planned to have a bite between trains at Brew Dog’s in front of Brussels Central Station, but had forgotten it was closed on Sunday. So we found ourselves dragging heavy luggage into the most touristy area of Brussels. The first place we saw was Brasserie Magic Rubens. Alas, there was nothing magical about it. We ordered two simple dishes:... More

Some of the kitchens from the restaurants around Grand Place close at a certain time. The Magic Rubens is a nice option if you don´t want to travel in a schedule of time for your meals. Average price for an average food. Service could be better.

The restaurant is on a great location, near many sightseeings, opposite there is a market with little wooden houses selling hand works suitable for gifts.The waiter was friendly, the food and the beer was very good.
