Food was good however as a tourist I feel ripped off. I was charged €2.20 for a glass of tap water while most restaurants do not charge for tap water in Europe. Not really recommended in my opinion.

Found this from Google maps when I was staying near the MIDI station. I was not sure what to expect. The food was really tasty and fresh. Inexpensive as well. Will go there again if I am in that area.

I've been there a dozen of times, and always enjoy coming back. The team does not welcomes you with an exaggerated smile, but rather in a simple and genuine manner. The food is like the ambiance : it does not lie. Simple, fresh, but very tasty. Go there with the people you love if you want to relax, get healthy... More

Very good atmosphere, felt welcomed. Simple food, unpretentious and very tasty. The side salad with our grilled lamb and chickens was yummm. The fried calamari was lovely! We also finished all the fries. My two year old daughter also loved the grilled chicken and kept asking for more. Its a good find and very clean place within 5 mins walking... More

Service was friendly and pleasant, just not very talkative. Nice atmosphere, friendly to children. Petit Os specialty was a nice extra to share.

Just absolutely wonderful! Right by Midi station. Fresh and delicious Greek food at a fantastic price. (Be aware though, it is cash only / no cards). Oh ya, this will officially be my go to place for a dinner each time I am in Brussels!

I wish I'd discovered this restaurant on previous visits to Brussels, it's a little hidden gem close to Gare Du Midi station and the Park Inn Hotel where I was staying. First of all you can't book a table. But we were there for 6pm when it opened and we weren't rushed to finish, unlike many places I've been to!... More

Located at 3 blocks from Gare Midi station, this restaurant is a great option for Greek food. Fast service, affordable prices, and delicious food. Staff does not speak good english though. The only think I did not like is that they charged us for a glass of tap water (even more expensive than a beer) which is not fair, they... More
