I stopped here with a local who frequents this place and we were lucky enough to find parking right in front which I’m told is nearly impossible as parking is a premium in the area. We were immediately seated at a nice table by the...More

Menu in French. Staff all French speaking. We asked for a menu in English they gave us an French to English translation booklet. It appeared to be a lot of the locals ate there. Food was fine.

Typical Brussels brasserie with good quality food and ambiance. Quite noisy and not much space between tables. The place where local stars & artists meet.

Unfortunately, we had our "favorite-luncheon-experience" "totalled" when our order for...More

I am doubtful... The food is good, quality of ingredients is good, but the service ... oh my god... Eating at lunch time next to a door being cleaned with strong cleaning product scent, this alters the taste of the food. When asking nicely to...More

Stopped in here because it was busy when all round it were pretty quiet. The place was bustling with people and the service was excellent with help understanding the menu. The salads we had were lovely and didn't skimp on anything - Prawn Salad (actually...More
