Had the Chateaubriand steak medium rare with the frites and mayos on the side. I was in heaven. Great atmosphere too: sit outside and enjoy the weather if you can. It’s in a nice little square next to a cathedral.

The chateaubriand still as tender and juicy as I remember. The most delicious steak you'll eat. Hands down. Worth coming all the way from London for. Will be back next year.

In the Fashion & Design district of Brussels, the famous Rue Dansaert, 2 minutes away from Grand'Place, discover an oasis of decontraction and culinary exception. On cool days, around an old furnace, or as soon as the sun shines, on our terrace under the platanes, offer yourself the charming atmosphere of a brasserie-restaurant where local artists and inhabitants like to stop the time for one of the 52 beers, a drink, a grilled meat, a specialty or a dessert. Modernity and tradition.
