Very original fixed menu of 5 courses of tasting bowls which were all excellent. Great service by skilled and well informed servers. Delicious bread.
Only point of improvement was that the same spoon is used for all savoury courses (a fresh one is provided for the dessert course) but it was unceremoniously plonked back on the wooden table between courses so not sure about cleanliness... Perhaps a spoon rest (similar to a knife rest) or a tablecloth or placemat to avoid this issue?

This unassumingly decorated restaurant provided surprisingly creative fusion food. Dishes are named after cities that inspired them, like Nice, Dublin ( dessert ) etc. European food served with an Asian touch - eating bowls, noodles etc. - but each dish was perfect, original and the result of a very successful restaurant. Reservation a must, but bar seating is also quite nice.

This original concept was an instant hit. And with reason. Its located next to a lovely market place called Zavel and it offers original dishes. Light food, asian style, but high level, very original, cooking. They serve a 3 course menu at noon for little money, and a 5 course menu for dinner.

We went to San on a Saturday evening. There are around 10 tables for 2-4 persons and this makes it a cosy place.
The atmosphere is relax and the waiters aren't pishy at all.
From the first dish till the 5th it was a wonderfull experience. Very nice taste combinations and notheavy on the stumach at all.
We will absolutelynreturn.

We had one of the more creative meals we have eaten at SAN Bruxelles. The flavors were marvelous combinations from start to finish. It was very difficult to choose a favorite among them. The menu is creative and the chef delivers. Perhaps the most interesting dish on the menu was vegetarian and with several fermented vegetables. Every dish was well balanced and with its own fusion of flavors.
I was impressed from the start. Not being a fan of mackerel, there was a sampler served in which the mackerel played a key role. I loved the dish, which took the edge off the mackerel and created a dish that fit so well together. At the same time, the mackerel kept its consistency. We finished with a marvelous strawberry dessert and gave kudos to the chef on leaving
Everything is served in bowls and eaten with a spoon in attractive surroundings. What a fun adventure!
