A group of us had a meal here and while things started well re service etc, it declined as the restaurant became busier and busier! Here I am basing my review on my meal, which was mediocre at best. Perhaps I opted for the wrong dish, as other members of the group said their meals were tasty. Considerably more expensive... More

Upmarket brasserie with an extensive menu of well-cooked French food. Wine is eye-wateringly expensive (one of the cheapest is 25 Euro for a 500ml carafe) and food prices on the high side too. Overall a great experience but maybe a place for special occasions rather than regular eating out.

Our dinner in this restaurant ended up costing us over €2000. We used the voiturier service and they damaged our car very badly. We had to pay for the repair and the restaurant refused to help us resolve the claim. The valet service has not cooperated and we have been left to foot the bill.

We found the Toucan brasserie by chance as the restaurant we initially went looking for had either moved or closed. The Toucan looked inviting but, when we saw the number of reserved tables, we didn't think they would fit us in without a reservation. But, the staff were extremely helpful and found us a table after just a short wait... More

Good to be on a long table with family. The dishes are classic, of course, it is a brasserie. Though not sure from which wind direction, but likely an average placed one like in the center, such as Parisian style, so a bit of everything on the menu. Sea food is good and a pleasure, because a part from Place... More

Absolutely irreproachable cooking! First class food. Everything was good. Cod was from the Atlantic and cooked to perfection. Cheese plate was judiciously chosen. Dessert was outstanding. Service was impeccable for Brussels standard (usually lousy...). A worthwhile visit.

A fun brasserie. Food was excellent. We had the pork shoulder and slow cooked lamb, both of which were beautifully cooked and presented (although vegetables were forgotten for one of the meals!) . We also had the house wine which was excellent. Service was Ok, not brilliant, but did not detract from the food and wine.
