The space is fabulously maintained, with a classic and gently imposing but not excessive decor, and a fresh flower centrepiece creation. The service is immaculate as always, balancing professionalism and approachability, with a constant but discreet presence, catering to any needs with a fine delicacy typical to Le Rabassier. Food was equally solid: well executed, with a good and stable pacing (neither too fast nor too slow) to allow for maximum enjoyment, with powerful flavours and balance of range of textures and aromas. It is a pleasure to experience each time how the same foundational principles of their style of cuisine remain recognisable while, equally, being constantly re-expressed and re-discovered, continuously evolving and improving so they remain the same and top of their game. The location offers adequate parking choices around, so that is not a problem for anyone driving from further away. No critical points, highly recommended, be it for an elegant romantic dinner, for a gastronomical experience among friends, for a special night out to a more qualitative and above average restaurant, or even for a long special lunch (when offered) to break one’s midweek routine.

This was a return visit, and did not disappoint. It is a pleasure to see Le Rabassier and their dishes in a continuous move and development while remaining solid to the same founding ingredients and principles. Even for the little details, they are in a constant process of investing and updating / upgrading, keeping things to an impeccable standard, which is really appreciated. More than anything, I personally enjoy the choreography of the delicate service, which is effortless and natural, and with a balance of constant but unfelt presence. Ingredients are respected and showcased with skill but without needless “bling bling”, resulting to dishes of discreet and well-judged visual elegance yet with surprising strength of flavour. Sublime. It is a complete experience that leaves no corners uncovered, with each phase of the meal being well catered, from the mise en bouche to the mignardises. If the menu of choice does not include their cheese (typically a brie de meaux farci à la truffe noire), it is worth asking for it to be added for that bit of extra. They have adequate bar options for the aperitif, though I personally enjoy a classic glass of champagne. Speaking of drinks, it is noted that they seem like they have further worked on their wine offering (besides the wine list itself) since, while there is no set wine pairing per se, good options can be offered by the glass to accompany different dishes effectively leading to a wine pairing according to one’s tastes, which would leave nobody disappointed. Few tables, and guests are well spaced. I would not be surprised if there was some thought is made behind the scenes prior to their arrival (based on expected time of arrival and table size), to partition groups and couples in the space in the most harmonious way, since selection of sitting seems ultimately very fitting for each group/couple. A place that is worth a visit.

Le Rabassier 2.0 in a new location is undeniably recognisable as Le Rabassier and simply feels like an improved version of the original; I believed that an improvement was not possible, but clearly they do not stop surprising their guests. Of course there are some changes, but this is only normal and to a degree desirable : for one to stay current, one needs to keep adjusting and involving. As a summary, I would say that Le Rabassier has stayed loyal and stable to their founding principles while they have evolved and strengthened, so the move from Sablon to Uccle has proven natural and fitting, giving them space for growth and to further prove their worth. Now based in the Pavillon Louis XV found in the parc du Wolvendael could simply not have been any more fitting, while there is some interesting potential for lovely meals outside in a future cosy terrace. Service-wise, they are of the highest standard and attention as ever, with discretion, professionalism and kind accommodation of any arising needs. Food-wise, the quality, robustness and copiousness of their menus is as consistent as ever, and always a pleasure to discover their seasonally varied dishes. Compared to competitors, their offer remains beyond competitive and qualitatively complete. Location-wise, parking is overall more convenient than their previous location. All in all, highly recommended without second thoughts and a place to discover / return. They were amazing in their previous location and they continue strong and equally amazing. My only (rhetorical) question is how come they still don’t have a Michelin star.

When I was there, at the time of eating I was thinking to myself “this is the best meal I have ever had”. I also realized at this time that every lobster I had ever eaten was over cooked. It was the most tender piece of lobster I had ever experienced by far. Christophe and his wife are an incredible team combining the most fresh fish, delicious truffles, and the best cooking and serving imaginable to create a perfect dining experience that outclasses any Michelin restaurant I have ever eaten

We’ve been fortunate to eat at a number of Michelin * restaurants, and we’re struggling to understand why Le Rabassier earned its 2 stars. The food is good, but not close to 2* good, based on our experience of 2* Michelin restaurants in the UK. It’s a (presumably) husband & wife team: front of house was delivered very efficiently. I understand that it’s a small place (18 covers on the evening) but I can’t help think that chef should hire some help. One chef serving (apparently) 2* Michelin food, on his own, doesn’t seem sensible. 3hrs for 5 courses, i.e. 3 real courses + amouse etc is too long, not least as the starter was a cold no-doubt pre-prepped carpaccio. The food wasn’t bad, but I just feel that if they spent some money on a really good sous chef, they might deserve 1*, if they work hard at it.

Small testaurant (approx 20 seats), very charming and great food. Only fixed menus, three to choose between. We chose tve black truffle menu which was great, the svallops served in a very special eay, and the venison grest. All tables served by one waoter, and very impressive how she handled it. Limited, but good mis-level wine list. Strongly recommended

A super tasty dinner in Brussels, usually when I book a Michelin restaurant I’m not sure why they got the rate, but here I can tell. The food was so tasty, varied and extra beautiful. Perfect service. Perfect dinner

Wonderful evening at a wonderful restaurant. Restaurant is famed for its truffle dishes and offers a largely fish based tasting menu. I contacted the restaurant in Ada Vance and said we had one vegetarian and one pescatarian in our party would this be an issue? The replay I got said fish and vegetables would be available……. So wasn’t sure what to expect! When we arrived the chef came to our table just to confirm our party details and that we were two carnivores, one pescatarian and one vegetarian. All great. The food when served was so so tasty, well presented, well spaced out, made brilliant use of the truffle (avoiding the over use) , wine list was very strong and reasonable. For me though the highlight was watching two professionals at work : the restaurant had one waitress and one chef who I think are husband and wife and served up a brilliant evening to around 20 guests. Bravo!

This is a lovely fine dining restaurant with either a 5, 6 or 7 course menu. It is run by a husband and wife with the husband being the chef and his wife serving. It is amazing that they can run this restaurant so efficiently and provide such high quality beautifully presented food. The dinnerware is lovely and every detail of the service is beautiful. One person in our group did not eat seafood so an accommodation was quickly offered for one of the courses. The bread was delicious. There were 3 amuse bouches and then then 2 petit fours accompanying dessert in addition to the set menu. The 5 course menu is one set of items and the 7 course another. Of course you must like the menu since there are limited choices. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Le Rabassier is a boutique fine-dining restaurant in Brussels with just a handful of tables. This extraordinary restaurant is run by a husband and wife team (Christophe Durieux and Eve Renaud) who have a passion for truffles, and, for providing suburb dinning experiences. As a matter of fact, one of the review websites we looked at showed Le Rabassier had a perfect 5 star score with over 700 reviews. This is an unheard of accomplishment. I have dined at top-tier restaurants all over the world and have never seen a perfect rating before. After my own experience, I can concur that the culinary experience at Le Rabassier does indeed live up to its reputation.

Excellent find through the Fork. Quiet restaurant serving up to 20 with a choice of 2 menus. All the niceties of a starred restaurant: excellent and attentive service without pushing the diner; a choice of nibbles with your aperitif, 2 menus of 5-7 courses. Well balanced, excellent quality - a delight to the taste buds. To finish off a range of biscuits and chocolates (not the highlight of my dinner). A good selection of wines to suit different tastes, with a focus on French wines. Such quality of course comes at a price, but this restaurant is well worth a visit! Recommended.

Once again, it was a magnificent experience, absolutely sublime and gastronomically complete, and always with some elements worthy of praise and that pleasantly surprise the customers even if they have visited before. In particular, it is particularly nice to see how they evolve and implement changes (from the dishes themselves as food to the plates and cutlery as material) while they stay loyal to certain central principles, ideas and concepts, thus everything revolving around these fundamental blocks. Speaking of changes, on a personal note, I would say that I miss the bread they used to have in the past, which resembled sourdough; on the other hand, it’s nice to have some changes from time to time and this particular comment is 100% subjective and a matter of personal preference, so it should not be perceived as criticism. Overall, seeing this place full was a genuine pleasure in itself, because they deserve it, given the joy it brings to the customers as well as recognition of the effort the owners put into it; for that reason, booking in advance is highly recommended. However, no words can replace trying it for oneself, and clearly it is a place recommended without a second thought. My only question would be why the heck they still don’t have a Michelin star, for which I am genuinely curious.

My wife and I celebrated her birthday here, both of us having the truffle degustation menu. It was superb, start to finish. We often eat well--having just eaten at Guy Savoy in Paris--and would judge this as a Michelin one star (or more) restaurant. Gracious service, too. We had a bottle of Chante Alouette (2016) which was a good value and drinking beautifully!
