Le Bistro is across from Porte de Hal. The restaurant signs only say "Le Bistro". We were looking for the full name and walked right past it at first. My husband had the Flemish stew and I had meatballs with a Grimbergen beer. For dessert, I had a delicious chocolate mousse. The food was tasty and the service was good. My husband had considered the mussels but chose stew. We asked if the pot of mussels another table had was for one person or two. The server was then joking with him about putting in his mussels order even though we had already finished our main courses. It was a tasty and enjoyable evening.

Cool and little bit luxury place in Brussels. Highly recommended to trying mussels in here. 1 pot of mussels is good enough for 4 people if you are not much hungry with your friends. Staffs are very kind and helpful.

Visited with work colleagues on a Monday, staff were friendly and accommodating. Starters are nearly as expensive as the Main courses (17-19 euro), fair selection of Belgium beers. This IS a tourist place really, there were queues outside after 9pm. Main objection is that fish of the day came with cold freezer chips in Brussels!! How is this even possible with a 4+ star TA review I do not know. The waiter shrugged it off without apology.

Having dined at several Brussels restaurants while on vacation this was clearly a stand out. Great location, very authentic feel to it. Seemed like a place the locals go. Great selection of beers and the food was amazing. Alex our server was incredibly friendly and a great waiter. Will definitely return.

Ate at Le Bistro - Porte de Hal our first night in Brussels and had a great meal and a great experience. We had the Cooked knuckle of ham with mustard sauce and Flemish beef stew cooked in Grimbergen beer. Both outstanding. Excellent beer list and very cool vibe. Our waiter Alex was great as well. Highly recommend!

This place offers good food - also traditional Belgium food. While a bit pricy, the food is excellent and wirth the money. Next to the hal gate, you can enjoy the food with few tourists and a lot of locals. Good place.

Saw the reviews and decided to try it. We weren’t d. Hubby had mussels and the portion was twice the size of anywhere else we had seen. Very tasty. I had chicken in mushroom sauce and was delicious. Tender chicken and sauce to die for. Wish we had come here sooner

This is a great bistro opposite Porte de Hal - I went with some family at the beginning of our trip because we were hungry and in the area. We had such a great time that I brought my husband back later in the week just for drinks. The beer list is extensive and they have a great selection of Trappist beers (like so much of Belgium). My family tried some traditional dishes: moules, rabbit stew and pork knuckle. I am not much of a meat eater but enjoyed my goat's cheese salad, and very much enjoyed the waffle for dessert. It's a great-looking place, in a nice location with its sidewalk tables (we sat outside both times). It reminded me in looks of a classic French bistro, but the wait staff were far friendlier. Go - at least for the beer and the view!

I expected a lot more given the good ratings but, despite the friendly atmosphere, the food is a disappointment. Huge portions but mediocre quality and very expensive for what you get. The same soggy indistinct salad that accompanied the cheese croquettes was the pricey "Salade au Chèvre Chaud", whose ginormous cheese slices could not possibly be warm. The muscles were fine but again expensive. Service is very kind and made up for a mistake by bringing extra drinks. And I did enjoy the Bière Blonde.

Absolutely terrible place, and a tourist trap. Everyone was waiting on their food and everything we had was average at best. The servers are young and seem to have very little experience. Biggest regret of a 3 week food tour across Europe!

We had a great dinner in the upstairs of this beautiful bistro right across from Port de Hal (with a great view!). The waitstaff were friendly, the food choices were excellent, and the restaurant was full on a Tuesday night.

What an amazing place, we visited for dinner. Only 10 minutes from our accommodation. Lovely friendly and helpful staff, food was outstanding. We had mussels in the Garlic and white wine sauce for a starter to share.. Then for main we both had steak, it was cooked beautifully, and the bearnase sauce was very very tasty. Really good portions and food was hot. Left feeling very full. This is a must to visit !!!
