The location is top, at the well located 'Grand Sablon', and the design and decoration of the restaurant is high quality and classy. The terrace is super, especially with nice weather. But, the older of the two owners has attitude like an arrogant bourgeois, the maitre d is quite arrogant too and the personnel goes from snobbish to friendly (if... More

We normally prefer some other place around Sablon, but as that one was already closing we were advised to go to Au Vieux Saint Martin as they are open all day long. The waiters were polite and service was rather quick. However, the food was so-so, for this price you can get better quality meal in the nearby restaurants. So,... More

We took the steak americain (or tartar in other places) and an entrecote (medium rare) plus one rabbit terrine and one foie gras terrine. Tartare was good, exactly to my taste. If the meat was cut by hand, it would have been the best tartar steak i ever had. It is nice for lunch on a Sunday, well decorated and... More

We visited Au Vieux Saint Martin for a light Sunday lunch. It is a very busy establishment, with well-heeled clientele in an expensive area of Brussels. We were able to get a couple of seats at the bar. A ham omelette, a chicken salad and 5 glasses of wine came to Eur 75, so the food is not cheap. But... More

The restaurant can get very crowded, but there are a few seats at the bar as well. The food was very good, with a nice selection and there were a variety of drinks, wince and beer available. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well.

And they may be true. Food was good, service was good, the wine was less good, but it may be our selection. But nothing was perfect.

After feeling hungry at lunch we decided to head to this restaurant. Having been here already a couple of times in the past, I sadly find that its slowly loosing its charm. Ok, Shimon Perez had lunch here, great, but this definetly does not justify the price and quality of the food. The staff is rather nonchalant, you feel embarassed... More
