Certainly not Michelin star, but the food was good and reasonably priced. The rabbit and the stew were very good. Selection of beers and wines was a bit limited -- one would at least hope for more beers on the list in Belgium and a...More

Cosy but funky modern decor in this Brussels bistrot which matches a warm welcome with honestly priced good food. Set on the beautiful Place Ste Catherine, this restaurant has a very varied menu offering traditional Belgian dishes (Carbonnade beef stew for example), spectacular potato based...More

Large portions and fantastic quality Belgian dishes. We can recommend the traditional beef stew (Carbonades à la flamande) and a fish stew casserole (Cassolette de poissons "Kombijma") which was a delicious cream based dish of prawns, mussels and sea bass. The restaurant also had a...More

The restaurant is right in front of the square with seats outside (for when the weather is nice), however the service is terrible - pretty slow. Plus the food is average - we had the mussels but they weren't as good as promised.

This place gives a good choice of traditional Belgian dishes. I revisited this place for lunch recently and had the Carbonnades Flamandes with Fries. It was good overall, but not really special. I was expecting a bit extra, especially because the prices are not on...More

Came in here as first choice was full; Kom bij ma was nearly empty, which was a little worrying. However, once the food arrived all doubts disappeared. Exquisite lamb fillet; lovely mussels and fine frites. The chicken Waterzooi was good if a little bland. Three...More
