We came in a bit late. Pretty much everyone was finished. The waiter came over to ask if we were going to eat a meal. We said yes and immediately ordered two beers (we had been walking for a very long time!). He gave us...More

Le Plattersteen is a great cafe that we always make a point of visiting on any holiday we take to this vibrant city. A fantastic looking cafe bar with great decor and furnishings including beer posters and enamels adorning the walls and plenty of seating...More

What to say about Plattesteen? You get a decent meal at a decent price and you'll go back there on a regular basis as it is convenient. Lunch time recommendation near the Grand Place.

Literal trash, the waiter was terrible, rude and refused to take my order. I’d say pass on this place. Hard.

Waiters do not reply to your questions. Waited for half an hour before leaving the place. The worst experience ever :( Please avoid.More

Reviewers here have mentioned bad service. I don't know if the service is bad or that this restaurant is just understaffed. It was hard to get our waiter's attention sometimes, but that's not because he wasn't working hard. He was just over-extended. They should hire...More

We can't comment on the food or drinks, because we were never served! Generally we have found Brussels restaurant service to be very nice. However at this place we encountered a long-haired waiter who was supposedly looking after the outdoor tables, who completely and systematically...More

The "service" here is non exist. Literally. I love the location but the service is absolutely horrendous. You have to flag someone down to get help and when you do order something you have to WAIT! It's crazy. On a side note the tomato soup...More
