Description: Since 2004, Brussels Bistro has brought the best in Belgium flavors to the heart of Laguna Beach. Relax on the terrace with a premium Belgian beer or dine underground in our casual-urban setting. Offering Belgian cuisine with a French flair, our Executive Chef, Thomas Crijns has created a superb menu of authentic dishes ranging from Beef Bourguignon to Steamed Mussels. Complimenting our wide variety of imported Belgian beers are mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres including Cheese Croquettes and our world-famous Belgian Fries. Join us on Friday and Saturday nights when the Bistro transforms into one of the hottest nightclubs in town.

I exclaimed with delight when I saw my favorite Belgian meal on the menu of the Brussels Bistro! My friends and I had been walking along Forest Avenue near the venue of The Pageant of the Masters, hoping to luck out without a reservation. The lovely hostess at Brussels Bistro paused for a moment, said "Can you eat fast?" to which we all three replied with a resounding "Yes!" As it turned out, the service was excellent, not rushed and very interactive as we spoke French with our gracious waiter. We savored every bite of our mussels with fries and beef bourgogne. Don't miss the "dame blanche" for dessert - three mounds of vanilla ice cream topped with hot rich chocolate fudge and whipped cream!

We lived in Europe for years, so a visit here brought back memories of "brown cafes" in Holland and Belgium.
Nice location and decor, very pleasant staff, very good food that's efficiently priced. Not much more you can ask for. For those who know, bitterballen, kroketten, mussels, etc. are great snacks. Had the Sunday night Steak&Frites special - $20. Can't go wrong!
Entrees were hearty and very tasty. Great fries with mayo. No complaints from anyone at the table. Nutella Waffle for desert, or the "dame blanche" - monstrous - Aanvallen!!

I stumbled upon the Brussels Bistro for dinner and was glad I found it. I had the Mediterranean Quinoa which was delicious.

Good food and apps in addition to the Belgian beer that brought me to Laguna. Be aware that Belgian beer is very expensive and 2 beers will set you back over $20....Food price are fair though. The bar is down some steps so you do get a favor of a European bar.
