Food and ambiance is ok but clearly overpriced. For >35€/pers => eating on plastic chair, unskilled service... I can easily support it but not at this price. There is a lot of opportunities with better price or better service in Brussels center.

We had dinner in the garden of the restaurant. The African style cocktails are very tasteful. The dishes are from different African countries. The service a little chaotic but the warm welcome of the owner made us very happy.

Now and then my Congolese girlfriend has a graving to eat African food. As she always wanted to go to grigri we decided to give it a shot. We were served by a nice young woman who given the opportunity would make an excellent host. She’s very friendly and attentive however it’s clear that the management doesn’t give enough guidance...

Hi again, As my fiancé comes from South Africa, he knows if an African restaurant is good or not. We have been there with another couple. The service is not really outstanding, but still good. The waitresses were very kind with us and the meals were really tasty. We didn't take a starter, we ordered a main course for each... More

We had our meal on the terrace outside, and enjoyed it from starters to dessert. All we tried gave us 100% satisfaction - the bissap and ginger drinks, the aloko and n'Dakala (fried plantain and fried little fish) for starters, and then the chicken moambe, chicken Kalanga and Capitaine Moambe, complete with saka-saka. And the chef also masters the sweet... More

Despite a relatively large African population, Brussels does not appear to have many African restaurants. Gourmands looking to experience this unique and underappreciated cuisine should head to Gri-Gri. I’ve been there several times and have never been disappointed. The menu can be intimidating, especially for non-French speakers. I recommend starting out with the “Safari” appetizer platter. My favorite main course... More
