Center of Bruxelles, late afternoon and hungry and no battery to check TripAdvisor on the phone. The old fashioned way still works tough, so I stepped into a hotel and asked its concierge to advise about a restaurant nearby - something worth visiting and which wasn't a tourist trap. He pointed to the Brasserie, stating (and I quote) "it looks... More

A terrible experience ... part of the dish I ordered is not what was served, when questioned the waiter said they forgot to change the menu board, the duck was so tough I couldn't cut it with my knife. I returned my meal by which point my husband had finished his and made the mistake of ordering a risotto which... More

Was there for an early dinner, pretty calm night. Nice interior and atmosphere was good. The staff was really serviceminded and the sirloin steak was tasty. A bit on the expansive side but worth it.

Hi, everyone! Here's what I wrote on their facebook webpage. This afternoon we had quite an experience in La Brasserie de Bruxelles. Everything was great until the food was served. I took my first mussels and it was tasteless and chewy. I was a little confused but the whole dish was basically overcooked and not seasoned. Most importantly, it was... More

Although not the season we had fantastic mussels yesterday at the grand market in Brussels. On the contrary the mussels at this restaurant were tasteless, not fresh and overcooked and last but not least extremely expensive! When complaining to the waiters in French and in English they were polite but not trying any bit to compensate for the bad mussels.... More

we went back because this we had always had great food and service at this little restaurant. This visit was excellent both nights we went there. I had the Skate the first night and the Veal chop the second...both world class. The service was impeccable as was the wine recommendations.

Nice location at the quiet place in the middle of Brussels, few minutes’ walk from the Grand Place but away from the crowds. Friendly and helpful staff. Menu with great selection of international, French and Belgian food, including meat, fish frutti di mare. Extensive selection of wine and other spirits. All we ordered was excellently prepared and served. A bit... More

Was there at 10 pm and it was nice to find a warm place still with the open kitchen. The restaurant interiors are nice and well stylised. Waiters are helpful and accustomed to deal with international clients. The food is ok, but not outstanding. My steak was ok, but you could expect more from Belgian meet. Generally is ok.
