Recommended by friends. Le Bourgeois is located near Delirium and Chez Leon but is much more peaceful. They have daily specials that include a beer or wine. Wife got lasagna and I went for the spaghetti (in Brusseles!!). Both we tasty and of generous portions.

Dirty, horrible. Disappointed in myself for not having the courage to walk out when I saw the state of the WC. Expensive too. Poor choice on our behalf. Avoid.

Apart from one of our group nearly being scorched to death by the electric convection heater next their chair, this operation was plumbing such new culinary depths it was practically in the Marianas Trench. I suppose you could say, if you are daft enough to go in here, then you deserve everything you do (or don't) get. Suppiosedly moules frites... More

Le Bourgeois can be another tourist trap near the main place. It looks as some Italian restaurants with narrow tables. I was careful for lunch and I ordered just soup of the day and ordinary main course and a beer. I came early and I sat inside - early March can be cold. I was not hungry or thirsty when... More

The last time I visited Rue des Bouchers before today was 16 years ago but I was very disappointed since the quality of the restaurants in this famous street know as 'the belly of Brussels' has gone so low. This restaurant was not an exception, food and menu nothing special and very expensive for nothing. In my opinion you should... More

The food was amazing. I had fried calamari with salad and my boyfriend had a beef steak with mushroom sauce, french fries and salad. Very tasty!

During my last job travel to Brussels, I remember the good mussles prepared with garlic and the duck breast, good but not exciting. The restaurant is pleasant both outside and inside. Very gentle servide.
