Terrible service. I'm not sure how there are so many other great reviews? This place is maybe 8 tables max, with 1 server it should be fine. The menu is simple - tapas per gram (?). Meanwhile the server couldn't care less. We arrived first and were served last despite reminding the server for our food twice. For what it... More

Charming little place for wine and tapas, just around the corner from the Place du Chatelain. The tapas are great, really good value for money - a Spanish/Mediterranean set of olives/cheeses/charcuterie/jamon/grilled veg. Good wines by the glass or bottle. Super friendly service. Such a cozy atmosphere. Great to go in a small group of friends or for a tete-a-tete. You... More

A fabulous quirky little place just a block off of Place du Châtelain. Perfect for after work drinks indoors or on the little terrace on any day and on Wednesday evenings when Chatelain is packed this is where one can still hear what one's company is saying. The wines are good, the Ochoa Tempranillo in particular, so is the sparkling... More

The waitress was rude to us. The food okay, nothing special, but expensive for a small plate. Never coming back.

Unless you have a whole afternoon to spend on sampling some average roasted peppers with average "jambon" from the Basque country, this place might not be the best idea, especially since the whole surrounding is cluttered with better options. I don't quite get those joints that are not restaurants, nor sandwich outlets, nor delis. This is such a place, this... More

I went with some friends and we drunk a good wine and had some appetizers that were honest but nothing special, the fact is that a place like this should have a special atmosphere but the service is poor and there is none.

I can be short: the place looks nice, the wines and tapas are good, but man....Brussels service staff just isn't worthy of the name. A smile, a "good evening, how are you?" really ain't on the menu here....a shame, and unfortunately rather the rule in Brussels.

We arrived quite late in evening but the lovely waitress kindly squeezed us in after clearing a little table displaying the menu. Then provided us with a free drink while we waited. The restaurant was really busy and I can see why. The food is very attractively presented and taste just as good as it looks. The wine was also... More

Little tapas bar, we went for ape time, in the evening and stayed for the whole evening with prolonged apero, a degustation of tapas, an spanish wine tasting. All food is made on site, fresh, tasty with a friendly service. Do not hesitate it is an excellent surprise, go with friends, eat tapas, drink wine, or take your lover for... More
