A very warm and entertaining dining experience in a well lit, very busy (with tables very, very narrowly spaced) and still pleasant and reasonably quiet place. The menu is fully based on Belgian cuisine specialties, helpfully described for inexperienced Italians as we are. There are quite a few, in addition to half a dozen versions of mussels and fries, to... More

Went with 3 friends, 2 of whom had been here before. Booked and no problem to be seated at 8:30. Place was crowded, noisy, and table very close together. Service was just so so, nothing to brag about, but acceptable. Simple menu, most people eating the few varieties of mussels in this Belgium themed moules et frites place. All of... More

The place is lovely and has a nice touch of Belgium. The mules are very nice and the beers are also very well assorted. I just got the mules but seems worth also other dishes.

I came here years ago and always wanted to come back but never had the occasion. After so many years it's been a confirmation: nice atmosphere, easy but cosy, very good food and beers. well done.

FR: L'un des seul restaurants Belge de Milan, la nourriture et les boissons y sont très excellents. On y retrouve un caractère Belge tout en restant un peu Italien. Le personnel est très agréable. Gros point fort, le choix de bières au fût et en bouteilles. Je conseille vivement la Saison et la Bourgogne des Flandres. Je reviendrai encore et... More

This Belgian restaurant is definitely one of my very favs! The Staff is kind and friendly, the restaurant is lovely, it looks like the inside of a submarine; the food is awesome! Mussels are really really fresh and no matter which type you try, they all taste great! French fries accompany mussels, just like in Belgium; they are crispy and... More

I was very disappointed by Le Vent du Nord. I lived in Lille and know very well Belgium and thus, maybe had too high expectations. First the decor... The music, the waiters uniform, the light wood has nothing to do with belgian culture but way more with French Bretagne... From the outside, they announced up to 20 different quality of... More

This belgium restaurant represents fairly the food culture of that area. You can find belgian beer included some trappist (chimay and rochefort) as well as fries (fired two times like the originals) and mossles and stew. The beer stew is not like the original cause the meat quality is different. The km 0 has different flavour, so do not compare... More

I ended up having dinner in this restaurant one evening I was craving for "moules marinieres and fries". The place is well designed with a style very ocean inspired. The tables are quite close to each other though, and it's quite noisy, so I would recommend it for a night out with friends rather than a romantic dinner. The menu... More
