Been there for a diner and finally spent the complete evening until the closure. Waiters were to kind and efficient. Food was pretty good, Belgium specialities. And not a large number choice of beers but some good Belgium beers are there.

The atmosphere is a great, rough-around-the-edges tavern-ish place. There's a ton of very typical Belgian meals; I had the Stoemp (sausages and mashed potatoes) and my cousin had the Jambonneau (a large, slow-cooked, fatty cut of pork) and both were very hearty but very good. There are also many choices of Belgian beer. Note that they have a cash-only policy.

This restaurant came highly recommended by a local Belgian friend for authentic Belgian cuisine. Although not all the dishes were local, the ones we ordered were superb. The beef stew and rabbit was amazing, and the creme brûlée was superb! Great selection of Belgian beer too. Staff was friendly and spoke good English. However, they don't accept credit cards here...

Loved our meal at Fin de Siecle. It is a bit pricey, but the portion sizes and amazing food make up for it! Wish we had saved room for dessert!

Visited this small restaurant for dinner. It was a warm evening and all the outside tables were taken, so we sat inside,which was fine. Lovely atmosphere. I had the pork knuckle which came with a small salad and small jacket potatoe. The pork knuckle was probably the tastiest I've had - very tender, not too salty and it was huge... More

It's THE typical Belgian resto in the city center. Big tables crowd an open high ceiling hall, as conversations compete with the sound of clinking glasses and cutlery creating a cheerful din. The food is good, the portions big, the staff in a perpetual state of stress. Tip: no reservations possible so between 19h30-21h go just before getting hungry and... More

Lovely food, great portion sizes and good variety. It seems about pricy but you definitely get your money's worth! The food is amazing and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Translated the entire menu for us and helped us choose a beer to suit our taste buds!

Loved the food and Beer here. We have the Pork with Mustard Sauce and the sausages. Both were equally good. We will be eating here every time we are in Brussels. Best part is that they serve food all day!

If you're tired of mussels and fries, please visit this restaurant! They don't accept bookings and you're likely to find 10/20 people queuing for a table, but it moves pretty quickly so don't be afraid to wait a bit. The carbonnade is exceptional and so are the sausages, but my personal favorite was definitely the knuckle, sublime! Definitely worth a... More
