When in Brussels, just pass the touristic Butcher Street, Rue de Bouchers, and go for this restaurant which is just around the corner. Food is very good, prices are decent and the atmosphere is pleasant.

A great meal and super atmosphere. The restaurant was full so booking is advised. It appeared to be full of locals enjoying good food and wine. I would look forward to going there again.

This restaurant primarily serves fresh, simply prepared grilled fish and steak. We had tuna and mixed grill of fish, both of which were excellent. The white asparagus starter with Egg salad was tasty. The chocolate sauce on ice cream and meringue was excellent. Efficient service.

This was recommended to us and it was a really good place to go to splash out on a special meal. The food was excellent, the atmosphere buzzy and the service friendly and quirky. A very enjoyable and entertaining evening.

Restaurant de l'Ogenblik is a very good choice when you want to dine in Brussels. The place is bistro-like and breathes a very cosy, homy atmosphere, the food is excellent (albeit a tad pricy) and the service is of a very high standard, something which is far from usual in Brussels.

Amazing chef ! We were a group of 16 and it's the first time in a long time that all dishes ordered by everyone were really delicious. The service is also great, both professional and friendly.

We visited l'Ogenblik on a saturday night for dinner. To have reservation is strongly recommended aspecially at weekend. We have been advised by the waiter to have sea food rather than meat, because their specialition was on that kind of food. For the starter we ordered fried calamari which was delicious. Then both of us ordered grlled fish which were... More

This is a typically Belgium restaurant with superb food and relaxed atmosphere. Great service, very nice setting and very good food. For starters we ordered Croquettes aux crevettes grises, Cassolette de champignons des bois and asparagus. For mains we ordered Filet pur roquefort, Beef Stroganoff and Scallop kebabs. Very good. Will be back
