An excellent upscale restaurant in the Schumann/Place Jourdan area with discreet nice service, white table clothes and beautiful Art Deco building. An excellent 40€ lunch menu. Recommended for special occasions.

Description
Welcome to the Stirwen! To cook, to host, to satisfy...Our principle is based on our passion for gastronomy. In Brussels, at the heart of the Jourdan area, in the shadow of the European institutions, the Stirwen restaurant is a place in which well-eating rings as a gentle melody. Such is our philosophy: regional and seasonal cuisine, respectful of the product, portioned generously, a bond between tradition and inventiveness. A cuisine right in its time, right in its place. Refined in professional chic, you will find yourself in a comfortable and elegant decor. The restaurant lends itself to any opportunity, from the business lunch to the long table. For your function, professional or private events, we provide you with a private dining room upstairs.
