Nice kid menu, good gin & tonics. Mediocre meals though, so better to walk a few meters to Sainte-Catherine area (De Noordzee, Ellis Gourmet Burger) or the lovely Toukoul.

Quick service. My normal Sapphire and tonic came in a wine glass but I appreciated the peppercorns and lemon.

Great service and, while this isn't the most atmospheric of places to eat, at the end of a long, hard day of meetings, it was a really convenient place to grab some food and a beer before heading upstairs to bed.

Situated adjacent to Novotel, it offers typical hotel dishes, not the place for 'foodies', it offers inside and outside dining, the menu is somewhat restrictive

This is Novotel's hotel restaurant, located at the lobby. As expected, it is usually full of businessmen that are staying in Bussels. So it is a good solution if you are staying in the hotel, especially if you are travelling alone! The food quality is not bad (nothing special either). But the menu has only a few dishes to select...

I never eat in the hotel but was really tired after a day trip to Antwerp and couldnt drag myself across the street to the nice looking and well reviewed bistro across the street. Served its purpose but would not recommend this for anything but convenience.

We went to the novotel with colleagues. Quick service. Starter was salmon. Just Some slices on a dish with Some tomatoes. Later we got waterzooi in a small goblet. This tasted nice.

This is the Novotel's restaurant. The hotel is great but the delivery of food needs to up its game considerably. I've only eaten here once and with so many good restaurants within a short walk, I'm afraid I am unlikely to return. I had a lasagne. It was cold in the middle and had to go back. The lasgne returned... More

Located near the Saint Catharine and fishmarket it's a nice place to regroup, rest, have a late night cocktail or a few beers. Alone or with collegues. They offer free wifi and plugs, so you can also do a bit of work. They do serve food, but as the area is crammed with nice restaurants, this would not be my... More
