It has been probably 10 years since my last visit, (yes I was going there regularly when studying and it's now some year back) and to be honest, I was so happy to be back. Food is great, very tasty Humus, and pita rolls. Salad is very good. Of course, not a fine great French cuisine, but if you go... More

Being used to eating Lebanese food I can tell you with confidence that this one serves some of the best dishes I have ever had. Funny thing is that every-time we go there it's always busy (that just tells of how good the place is) and I usually take the Fatouche Salad along with a Chicken Shawarma but my wife... More

Amazingly fresh, we got a couple of the sandwiches and a beer each and sat outside whilst the world whizzed by..seek it out, just off grand place. We ate at a restaurant in grand place one night and really wish we ate here in stead for a... More

We stopped into L'Express after arriving in Brussels via train from the airport for a convenient lunch. Looks a little sketchy from the outside and not that much better inside but super cheap and probably the best falafel wrap I've ever had. Just steps away from the Grand Palace.

The small street just off Grand Place is crammed with similar type restaurants to L'Express. Chicken pita sandwich was large portion but somewhat dry. Garlic white sauce did not have much flavor either. Even olive plate tasted a bit flat. Probably no worse or better than other restaurants nearby. Sandwich, olive plate, Coke was less than 10 Euros.

Good lebanese kitchen. Friendly service, fresh ingredients, good location. On downside is that you can only pay cash
