We did the same mistake again and went in for late lunch, because we were cold and hungry. Absolute dissapointment, unusual for Brussels. Sat down, table not cleaned, had to wait for 15 mins to get the menu (!), then another x mins to get to order the drinks. Then we were told we will have to wait 40mins (yes,... More

Cafe Leffe is a non-pretentious brasserie. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is honest and generally well-prepared. (The choucroute is not what my wife always orders when we are in the Alsace and the mustard was not Dijon.) The atmosphere is convivial. Our group of five felt is was an informal and quite affordable way to end our... More

Had lunch - or at least wanted to - with friends in this joint. Don't go there is the simple advice. Food was cold, uncooked and served without any excuse to keep us waiting for a croque monsieur of 12€ for 20 minutes. Sorry, waste of time and money

Getting lost in Brussels, I got hungry and looked for a quick bite to eat... I know a couple of Leffe cafes so why not the one in Brussels? Ordered a red wine and Waterzooi, a specialty from Ghent... Wine ok, waiter more than helpful, quite a long wait for the dish... plate straight out of the microwave... not heated... More

Right at Grand Sablon, this cafe is a perfect place to stop for a coffee or beer. Service is efficient, and coffee was good. We did not eat, just stopped to take a break.

With all the amazing eateries in Brussels, we ended up at this dud. We had to fuss to get a menu, fuss to have our order taken and beg to get the bill. The setting is pleasant enough, but not for the tasteless food a price tag. Skip this and eat at home.

Popped in for lunch. Nice atmosphere and pleasant service. Found the food mediocre and the prices a bit rich!

Four of us waited 10 minutes for a menu, 15 minutes to give our order. Drinks arrived. 30 minutes later one main arrived and was eaten. Spent next 20 minutes trying to get remaining 3 mains. Was shrugged at by waiter, ignored by bar lady and then ignored totally despite surrounding tables eating having arrived at least 20 minutes after... More

My husband and I were on a tour called 'Circle of Europe' and we went to Belgium finding this place for lunch which had the best mussels I have EVER had. They were tender and cooked in large pot with celery, onion and green leafy seasoning. The price was very reasonable.
