Welcoming place with a pretty nice terrasse. We had a beer and salad with tartines. The cuisine was fine and the prices are reasonable. The service was a bit chaotic although the restaurant was not overcrowded.

A wonderful terrace, quiet, in a nice street. but amazingly slow, chaotic and nearly arrogant service by friendly but inexperienced people. All this for less than average food. Change the full team, restart with respect and love for the customers and everything will be all...More

It is a nice location to enjoy when it's warm outside. People working there are nice but seem very busy. We had to wait quite a long time outside before someone noticed us. We had only two salads and a bit of wine. It was...More

This restaurant was recommended by friends, but it's still unclear why.. The menu is rather limited, the service was a bit awkward, the food quality was average. Setting is nice, but on a Saturday evening only 4 to 5 tables were taken.

It's very unfortunate and it's the second time. First the service. It's one of those places where you don't feel in Brussels but rather in Paris with a waitress or the owner seem to be unhappy to work and serve. Doesn't look at you and...More

L���Arriere Pays restaurant in Brussels near the huge museum and the Palais Royal is a rustic, casual restaurant-cum-epicerie that also is a charming spot for tea or an early-evening drink. The front room is a shop for reagional, artisanal products are sold. The dining rooms are kitted out with solid wood floors and furniture and walls the colour of sun-ripened tomatoes, a cosy ambience for light lunches and suppers. Choices include salads, cold or warm tartines, pastas, tartiflette, steaks and vegetarian dishes. The tiramisu with speculoos and genievre (Dutch gin) is an inspired combination, and artisan ice creams keep the inner child quiet for quite a while. The terrace seats up to 60 ��� a terrific choice for a group or private meal, and the whole restaurant can be booked for events.
