We were recommended this restaurant by a Belgian friend. It is a short walk up the hill from and near the Grand Place but decidedly not a tourist trap serving Moules/Frites. The menu offers excellent choices, focus on fresh and interesting preparation. (I had rabbit...More

Thank you dear client. There is just a mistake in the price 😉 Maybe the price with a comma would be better 😂

We were hesitant at first as the outside menu was not in English. When we read the menu in English it made more sense. We both had a chicken dish. One was a traditional Belgian dish the other was Coq Au Vin. They were both...More

Situated in one of the most beautiful and high end squares in Brussels, this is definitely a must go place in the city. The service is very good, waiters are nice and the food is excellent especially for meat-lovers. If you go there make sure...More

This is a nice classic belgium braserie. The food is good and the place is pretty, great location. However, a waiter called Christophe (the bill says) was so rude to us he ruined our lunch. I write this review because I like the place but...More

I am sorry for your bad experience. In case of problem you must ask to speak with us (the boss is always in the restaurant) or with our maître d'hotel. It is very important for us to have good waiters for our clients.

Went here specially for the Waterzooi as suggested by a local that grew up near the restaurant. The chicken was tender and the veggies had plenty of flavor. We also enjoyed the chicons de fromage very much as well. Worth a visit for those two...More

Such a nice place. I strongly recommend The Americaice, some of the finest steak tartars you could have. World class. Outstanding service, great atmosphere. I always hit the place whenever in town, either for dinner or just for drinks. Open kitchen, always available

You won’t find food that surprises or delights you with unexpected flavor combinations at this restaurant... but you will find the Flemish classics such as Carbonnade, Waterzooi, Chickory (Endive) Au Gratin, and Chicken Vol-Au-Vent, all executed well and predictably.

It is true that we don't serve green salad or fries as a plate. It is written in our menu. A green salad or fries are trimmings for our meals. Our chicken salad is served with mayonnaise but you may always ask for vinaigrette.
