We were placed at a little entresol but that was fine. Menu describes a variety of dishes in an inviting way. Unfortunately the quality of the food didn't meet that level. The starter with fish balls had too little fish and too much potato. The...More

Worth a visit through the big black velvet curtain which you initially think harbours a boudoir...but no a bright hip restaurant...with welcoming service and lots of good food. What more do you need... a great desert...yup a pannacotta which wobbled well! Definitely worth a visit....

Publico was a nice break from the traditional Belgian Fare. The ambiance is very cool and my husband and I both enjoyed our meals. Note: they only take cash (like quite a few places we found throughout Belgium).

This is the first time I've been to this restaurant and I really enjoyed my moment there. The dish quality is really good and I really appreciated what I ate. If you want to eat Italian, this is a good place to go.

For our first night in Brussels, we came here. Was absolutely not disappointed. We started with the Parmesan croquettes and the hot goats cheese/baked apple/honey salad; the croquettes were crunchy, creamy and delicious. The rich goats cheese paired beautifully with the soft apples and bitter...More
