What can i say but 'crap'....We weent for dinner ...waited over an hour no food...goodness we didnt order the mussels... but hey neither did other people who got their meals in a much shorter time ...but being from Australia and used to pretty poor service was willing to wait but an enquiry of how long elicited a very rude response....was it because we didnt speak french..didnt order the mussels we shall never know went to Spago and had an amazing meal AND great service

Contrary to what some of the more recent reviews are saying, this is absolutely smashing! It is a small, very popular restaurant with excellent staff who seem to speak English much better than I speak French! One of the staff went around smiling and laughing all evening, she appeared to be enjoying her work thoroughly. We had made a booking, and despite that our group was reduced at the last minute from 14 to 11, we were not met with any negativity although this meant that they were not able to use the small locale to its full potential. There were people coming all the time, looking for a table, so it was really popular and of the people present, there seemed to be a majority of locals. Also, I believe, about 98 % went for the mussels which where the best I have tasted. The portions were huge, and the fries that accompanied them were excellent. One of the group celebrated her birthday, and the staff had a small suprise in stall for her once told of this. It was truly great! But if you are looking for formal dining, look elsewhere. This is a down to earth neighbourhood restaurant.

We loved this place. It is not far from the tourist area but was full of locals. We were recommended by a local and had second thoughts after reading reviews. However, we liked the look of it when we arrived and we're hungry, so gave it a try. So glad we did. We chose a hanger steak and a fillet. Advised to order the hanger medium rare and it was very good as was the fillet. Good size portions washed down with a half litre of house white did the trick for us. Would definitely return and recommend.

The food we had was good - we had mussels. Neighbouring table (very close!) had steak and a meat 'stew' - they said they enjoyed it. Restaurant busy in a touristy but still enjoyable area. Not haute cuisine but certainly not disappointed.

Nice place, kind service and great food. Every two years we spend 1 week in Brussels for an exhibition and "Le pre sale" is the place that we always choose to have a good dinner. the moules are the best we have eaten in Brussels and everytime they never disappoint our expectations! I reallly suggest this place! I recommend to reserve a table.
