Beautiful streets and area. Very romantic walks at night as well. Stayed for 2 days and really enjoyed Brussels. A lot of restaurants in it and shops. Very alive nightlife.

The seafood was wonderful! If you love shellfish, this is the place to be! I dream about this meal often and wish I could get something like this in the States.

Quarter De L'Ilot Sacre is without a doubt one of the main tourist areas of Brussels and a walk through some of the restaurant lined streets will confirm this. Walking through the streets you will be accosted by many restaurant hawkers trying to lure you...More

Whether it's shopping or eating, there was something for everyone here. Plus it was all Christmassy at this time of year!

This street is for tourists only. We walked through once and saw that it's full of over priced restaurants and noisy waiters trying to get you in. Crowded, so beware of your belongings.

The place is packed with many rubbish restaurants (with a very few good exceptions though! - check reviews). If you haven't chosen your place in advance, I recommend just walking across and ignore the irritating, aggressive people trying to lure you inside.

We walked through this street quite a few times, as it was a good cut through to our hotel and although we only used this street for walking through (we didn't eat or drink down here) I still wouldn't recommend it. Admittedly, we thought the...More
