Came across this restaurant by chance on our first night in Brussels and it was wonderful. Having just stepped in off the street on a Wednesday evening we were found a table, despite not having a reservation. The waiting staff were excellent, discreet yet very attentive and they made us feel very welcome. We chose a 3 course menu for... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant as being in a hotel can mean that the food isn't always the best but this is an exception. the steak was one of the best I've had and the strawberry soup dessert was brilliant.

We went for lunch on a busy day to this restaurant. Despite it was very busy, full of business people, the service was quick, very friendly and the food was so so delicious and original. They change the menu every week. I will definitely go again.

I can't say whether the chef who cooked other reviewers' meals was on leave or working elsewhere, but I didn't experience many of the positives written about below over a 3-day work-related stay.

The ICONES Lounge Bar & Restaurant are designed to make everyone feel at home, in a small group or alone. The long bar counter, made of Miletia wood and chrome, is topped by an imposing glass chandelier. Guests can sit at tables of varying heights, depending on the time of day and as the mood takes them. The raised bar contributes to the conviviality while the lounge tables and armchairs provide superb comfort. A well-situated garden – a godsend in the cityscape – laid out with great care, allows guests to take a breath of fresh air in the sunshine.
